A gala evening raised £22,500 to support young performers through Birmingham Hippodrome’s youth programme.

The programme provides creative experiences and opportunities for young people in 44 schools. It also runs young talent development schemes and puts on public performances through its Musicals Youth Theatre.

During the gala evening the Musicals Youth Theatre performed a choreographed showcase of songs from their production of Imaginary—A New Musical.

Judith Greenburgh, head of fundraising and development at Birmingham Hippodrome, said, “we’re absolutely delighted to have raised such a fantastic sum from our generous guests.

“All funds raised will make a direct impact on our Hippodrome youth programme, enabling us to provide even more creative experiences and opportunities for young people across Birmingham and the Black Country, especially those from underserved communities.”
