Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres

Thanks to all at the Hippodrome for providing ... one of the happiest, most worthwhile and interesting evenings I've spent at the theatre in a very long time

Thanks for visiting


Welcome to the website for the Todmorden Hippodrome Theatre owned and run by the Todmorden Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society (T.A.O.D.S.).  Situated in the Upper Calder Valley, between Manchester and Leeds, we're one of the largest community run theatres in the UK.  Here you can find information on all our events and how you can help secure the future of this wonderful 480 seat Edwardian Theatre.


The NODA rep came to see our production of The Hound of the Baskervilles but did he find the crazy, 3-person, nods-to-Ealing comedy to his liking? Find out here in his official report.
