    Birmingham Hippodrome: Thanks to Phantom!

    The main reason why I was in Birmingham in April and May 2013 was to see two 'The Phantom of the Opera' performances at the Birmingham Hippodrome. I went to two amazing performances at this theatre including the final performance of the 2012/13 Phantom UK tour as Birmingham was the last stop on the tour.

    I like the Birmingham Hippodrome especially with its spacious lounge and bar areas. As well as a large two tier auditorium there is an in-house restaurant, bars on each level, and a deli/cafe bar which is renowned for its lovely cupcakes. They is also another restaurant which is situated opposite the stage door on Thorpe Street.

    I plan to return to the Hippodrome in the not too distant future to see some Birmingham Royal Ballet productions.

    Dress Code: Smart casual.

    Midlands Art Centre: Arthouse Cinema and Local Theatre

    by J_P_B Written Mar 19, 2003
    The Midland Arts Centre

    The Midlands Art Centre (or MAC as it's known locally) has a small cinema which shows films that are often overlooked by bigger, Multiplex cinemas. It also has a number of stage productions, both amateur and professional put on on it's indoor and outdoor stages. Furthermore, it has a bar and a cafe. When I was a kid, I used to go to classes there. I'm fairly sure they still run them... everything from Judo to Music and Pottery.

    Dress Code: None as such

    King and I: Alexandra Theatre

    by Galahad Updated Feb 15, 2003

    December 2000 We went to a very enjoyable performance of the King and I on Boxing Day. This is a late 19th century buiiding and a commercial theatre so the prices can sometimes be a bit high for Birmingham's theatres (£15 to £25 for the Grand Circle). Try to get seats in the Stalls or Dress Circle the Grand Circle is very high up in the theatre and very steeply raked -be warned, if you suffer from vertigo.

    Dress Code: Nothing special

    There is so much to do in Birmingham even at night. There is pbviously Birmingham University and so there are alot of clubs open and pubs. However there are also many beautiful theaters where you can see some lovely performances ranging from dancing to acting!
    It has absolutely everything!

    Dress Code: Usual casual but still a bit dressy!
