Birmingham Hippodrome B5 4TB

A great theatre needs great people. We can only thrive by having the right team on board in a fast-paced, constantly changing, creative workplace.

Presenting the best in musical theatre, ballet and opera, dance, drama, comedy and pantomime, we work successfully with some of the world's biggest international producers. With our resident partners Birmingham Royal Ballet and DanceXchange; with collaborators such as Welsh National Opera, The Lowry and Sadler's Wells; and with names like Disney, Cameron Mackintosh, Qdos and Cape Town Opera dull moments don't get a look in.

Average annual paid attendance of over half a million theatre-goers underlines our claim to be the UK's busiest and most popular single theatre. We are managed by a voluntary board of Trustees as an independent charity with no revenue subsidy from the public purse. In our main auditorium or Patrick Centre studio, in our conference spaces or restaurant, and in schools and communities through Hippodrome CREATIVE, we make sure that everyone is welcome, we settle for nothing but the best and we bring flair to everything we do.
