    Weʼve raised £778 to Help to insure Dudley Hippodrome

    Funded on Thursday, 29th December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Before we can even go inside the the Hippodrome, we need to insure it. This is the first step we have to achieve. Meanwhile large grants are being pursued for major renovation work. Your help is needed now, this is a team effort and fundraising is already underway. If we all work together we will soon have a theatre to be proud of. The pride of the Black Country, saved by Black Country people and other people who love theatre. Dudley Hippodrome is will be resurrected for everyone to enjoy for generations to come. So come on folks, let's do it, let's get this show on the road.

    Thankyou in advance, Black Country Gaz

      The official key handing over ceremony was on Monday 19th December, we also have a 5 year lease. This is our chance to make this happen people, the plans for the Hippodrome are bigger than most people realise, it will be the pride of the Black Country. Theatre loving people and people who care about their community and their heritage have helped raise £658 on the just giving page to date. This is so important in the early stages, thankyou everyone who has helped. By giving a little now, we will one day get so much back. Happy Christmas & 2017.

      I'm thrilled at the support here, especially with Christmas fast approaching. I am also pleased with the support of local venues happy to have gigs to help raise funds. The Black Country pride is strong here. Let's hope my voice stays strong lol.

      I now live in Somerset, and have happy memories of the hippodrome. My wife was the theatre secretary in the late 1950's.
