Darlington Hippodrome exhibition


Darlington Hippodrome has launched a new exhibition celebrating the history and architecture of the Edwardian theatre at the Crown Street Art Gallery in Crown Street Library, Darlington.

Moving Forward, Looking Back: A History of the Hippodrome, is a new exhibition celebrating the architecture of Darlington Hippodrome. The exhibition is open now and runs to 7 September in the Crown Street Art Gallery , Crown Street Library, Darlington. The exhibition explores the architecture of the Hippodrome, its external and internal features, its succession of managers and directors and the impact they – and their times – had upon the building. You will also be able to take a sneak peek at behind the scenes images of the restoration.

As part of the exhibition the Hippodrome will be hosting two one hour talks in the library with guest speakers on Friday 1 September at 11 am, and with Sean McNicholas, Operations Manager from Willmott Dixon on Wednesday 6 September at 6:30pm, who will share their own experiences in restoring the theatre and embracing its Edwardian heritage.

The talks are free but tickets are required. To book your place on either talk please contact the box office on 01325 405405.
