I was most interested to read the section about the Hippodrome.

Searching through my collection, I found a small photo of me by the stage door in about 1950 or 1951.

My father was appearing at the theatre as accompanist to Tommy Trinder – who I knew as ‘Uncle Tommy’. My mother was in the show as part of the Tiller Girls troupe.

I hope this venue endures to see live performance once again.

  • I remember seeing The Wizard of Oz at the Hippodrome with Judy Garland singing. It was around the 1950s, can anyone remember? Could it be the same place as it was a show on ice?  Is there another Hippodrome perhaps elsewhere or would it have been in Brighton? I was only 6 so it was a long time ago and I am in Australia now.
