Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.
The Hippodrome Theatre opened as a live Variety & Revue theatre in 1914. It was converted into a cinema in 1930 and remained in that use until 1950 when it reverted back to live theatre use. This ceased in 1959 and after laying empty for 3 years it was converted into a bingo club which remains open to date. The theatre was Listed Grade II in 1996.
