Venue Hire

The Royal Hippodrome Theatre makes a wonderful venue for hire. With over 500 usable seats in its Victorian Auditorium, it is a wonderful, intimate space for any type of entertainment. It plays particularly well for variety and comedy and, because it used to be an Opera House, the acoustics are amazing, meaning that it is also suited to drama and any musical entertainment.

RHT Management are flexible on its terms of hire, and the arrangements will be adapted to suit the individual needs of the organiser; therefore, there is no standard tariff, as it all depends on how much or how little you need.

The RHT has a Resident Production and Stage Manager, and he should be able to answer any technical questions that you may have. In the mean time, you can always download a copy of the RHT’s current technical specifications (bottom of page), though we hope to modernise some of these facilities soon.

As well as the theatre, we also have these additional spaces available to hire:

Dance Studio

The dance studio is on the 3rd floor and offers plenty of space for meetings and dance classes. Rates, again, vary depending on the day and time but are competitively priced.

Dress Circle Bar

The dress circle bar is an ideal meeting space or area for breakout or script reading rehearsals.


For more formal meetings around a table, why not opt for our boardroom? It is totally secluded from the main workings of the theatre.
