Tommy Trinder appearing c1950

Outside the Hippodrome Stage Door c1950
From the private collection of Lyndsey Lee

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.

  • This ‘gay holiday show’ was called ‘Starlight Rendezvous’. It was the summer season show from 18 July to 16 September 1950. An excerpt was broadcast on the BBC Light Programme on 2 August.
