Welcome to the Hippodrome

Visiting Shows For the Festive Season and Beyond

T.A.O.D.S. put on a lot of shows, films and comedy over the year but even in between shows, the theatre is never dark. We also have visiting shows from around the local area and this Christmas is no different. So, over the festive season we are proud to welcome our friends to the Hippodrome, bringing with them a great mix of fun and winter cheer.
