Bristol Hippodrome: the heart of Britain's creative city
Opened in 1912, Bristol Hippodrome was designed by renowned theatre architect Frank Matcham and included two notable features: an enormous water tank at the front of the stage, which could be filled with 100,000 gallons for use in circus or aquatics shows, and a large dome above the stalls that could be opened to allow natural air-conditioning. While the tank is long gone and an air-conditioning system has since been installed, the dome still exists and is perhaps the only such structure in the UK to remain fully operational. The capacity of Bristol Hippodrome is just under 2,000, with the audience spread out across three levels in a stunning red and gold auditorium. It's a grand setting wherever you choose to sit, but for a truly special experience you could treat yourself to one of the Bristol Hippodrome boxes - offering unparalleled views of the stage (and the rest of the audience!) you'll be closer to the action than ever before. Having survived war and fire, the theatre has stood strong as a bastion of culture at the heart of Bristol and attracts large audiences to every one of its stellar productions. Tickets for Bristol Hippodrome are a must-have for culture lovers of any generation.
