Our Brighton Hippodrome

With the future of the Hippodrome still uncertain, Our Brighton Hippodrome group is still fundraising for their fighting fund.

They Played the Brighton Hippodrome!

Komedia Studio, Gardner Street Brighton on Sunday 12 April 3.00pm

An afternoon’s entertainment bringing back memories, using a selection of vintage film clips featuring singers, dancers, comedians, dance bands and unique speciality acts that appeared at the Hippodrome during its heyday, supported by posters and programmes. Plus a rarely seen short documentary, ‘Sleeping Beauties’, focusing on the Brighton Hippodrome. Plus hear Max Miller on stage at the Brighton Hippodrome.

An afternoon of non-stop nostalgia presented by Gerry Oxley, Brightonian Vintage Film Collector.
