The Hippodrome is a multi purpose space with a capacity of around 80 for music, performance, comedy, poetry and multi media events. Within a changing programme of activities, we invite selected artists and designer/makers to exhibit work during two month long exhibitions in the summer.  Our concert season runs from September to June with both local and international musicians bringing  an eclectic mix of styles from folk, jazz, classical and blues.

We are keen to work with makers, artists, writers, musicians and others on projects at the Hippodrome and in the local area.

Although the programme is established approximately twelve months ahead, there may be opportunities for short residencies and ‘scratch’ sessions and we welcome working with organisations wishing to tour events.

Expressions of interest can be made by  following the procedures outlined below.
