Hippodrome projects given cash boost

Networking evening raises money for theatre community work programme 

An evening of delicious street food, music from DJ Mazzy Snape and plenty of laughs from comedian Rob Beckett was enjoyed by 100 guests at a networking event at Birmingham Hippodrome. Sponsored by Molson Coors and hosted by Martin Guest, the evening raised more than £1,500 for Hippodrome Projects – the theatre’s curated programme of indoor and outdoor live performance, community work and transformational learning projects.
