The iconic Bristol Hippodrome is saying goodbye to their historic theatre seats this summer and are offering the opportunity for you to own a piece of the city’s history. 

 The theatre is a superb example of the grand architecture of the late Victorian era and is one of the masterpieces of design by Frank Matcham, the most eminent theatre architect of his time.

 Having survived the war unscathed during which time the theatre contributed enormously to the morale of Bristolians with a continuous run of first-rate entertainment, it was a tragic irony when a disastrous fire broke out and almost destroyed it in 1948.

 The seats have been in situ following that fire and have been witness to some huge shows and great performers. So if you are looking for a truly Bristolian and unique talking point for your home, your venue or your business look no further! Jenny Hutchinson, General Manager says, “This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Bristol Hippodrome history that may also hold some very special memories for you or a loved one.” 

 The Bristol Hippodrome will be making a generous donation to a local Bristol charity, selected from those nominated by purchasers, so this is also a great opportunity to support an important cause. 

 Seats will be sold on a first come first serve basis and will require collection w/c 21st August 2017.
