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

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.


Our mystery Thriller Pyrenees opens this Wednesday to Saturday. A man is found in the Spanish mountains with no memory of who he is or what he was doing there. Can Anna uncover his identity and is Vivienne really his wife? Or will the Hotel Proprietor find some more impropriety. Book your ticket HERE
