Birmingham Hippodrome has raised more than £27,000 through its Unlocked campaign which will increase access to theatre for young people in the West Midlands.

The campaign was part of the national Big Give Arts for Impact fundraising challenge which ran for a week. The money will enable the Hippodrome to offer 200 young people the opportunity to develop their creative talents, confidence and leadership skills.

The Hippodrome’s head of fundraising and development Judith Greenburgh said, “a huge thank-you to everyone who generously donated towards our campaign. We’re committed to becoming the most accessible venue in the UK and these vital funds will help give more than 200 young people a chance to experience theatre and new opportunities.”
