Hippodrome Leading Ladies

Hit show and award-winning make-up demo cast their spell on Leading Ladies

There was a ‘wicked’ atmosphere at the latest Leading Ladies event at Birmingham Hippodrome. Guests at the popular city network for professional women enjoyed a spell-binding make-up for business demonstration from national award-winning make-up artist Gemma Richmond. The performance of hit show Wicked received a standing ovation as did the sumptuous cake supplied by the Arcadian’s Caffe Chino to accompany the champagne. Nearly £1,000 was raised for Hippodrome Plus, the theatre’s education, access and community projects programme.
