Darlington Hippodrome opens its doors on Saturday 18 November.

Over the last 18 months this Grade II Listed Edwardian building has undergone a £12.3 million restoration transforming it into a modern hub of theatre, creativity and learning. Darlington Hippodrome is a contemporary celebration of theatre and heritage, a place with a new name and a bright new future.

Now, the team from Willmott Dixon are packing up their ladders and our new Front of House team is in place to welcome you to your new theatre. On Saturday 18 November at 10am, Darlington Hippodrome opens its doors. So come along, enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake in the Hippo Lounge café bar, explore the three new galleries, or book your tickets in the shiny new box office.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday between 10am and 6pm! But if you can't make it then, don't worry - with a stunning new season on-sale from Monday 20 November, you won't be able to stay away. Explore the website for full details of the new season as well as what's on in the galleries.
