After nearly six months of closure due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Darlington Hippodrome will be reopening its doors to visitors from Monday 7 September 2020.

On Monday 7 September Darlington Hippodrome will reopen marking the start of a season of socially distanced activities for people of all ages to enjoy.

Activities will include regular dance and fitness sessions, a book group session, drawing workshops, quizzes and theatre tours including some ghost tours for those who feel brave enough. Future activities will include classic-film screenings in the auditorium. The theatre’s gallery spaces will be accessible to the public from 10am to 2pm Monday to Saturday and the venue’s box office and Hippo Lounge will be open from 10am to 2pm Monday to Saturday and 30 minutes before each ticketed event.

The venue says that visitors can be assured that all possible measures have been put in place to make a trip to the Hippodrome safe and enjoyable. Capacity at all events will be restricted so it is advised to book early.
