Hippodrome boost to youth

Sell-out Cinderella gala events raise £10,000 to fund dance programmes

Gala evenings with a difference were held alongside public performances of Sir Mathew Bourne’s Cinderella at Birmingham Hippodrome. A week of fund-raising events and creative learning projects included three dinners themed around the fairy-tale and attended by more than 250 people, raising over £10,000 for Hippodrome Projects dance programmes. Guests at a Leading Ladies reception enjoyed delicious food, a specially created cocktail by Edgbaston Boutique Hotel and Cocktail Lounge and a Q&A with Sir Matthew Bourne, hosted by BBC presenter and Hippodrome Development Board member Joanne Malin.
