Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres


Congratulations to Richard Holley who beat all the competition at the NODA North West Award Ceremony earlier this month to collect the Hippodrome's only regional award. He won the Best Supporting Male Actor in Play category for his portrayal of Robert Lyon, in the Pitmen Painters. 


As well as recently appearing in numerous plays such as The Memory of Water, A Midsummer Night's Dream (above), The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and, of course, Shylock in the upcoming The Merchant of Venice, Richard has directed plays such as Blithe Spirit and Wuthering Heights on the main stage.


This is a hugely well deserved award for all Richard's hard work for T.A.O.D.S.
