    A recce a couple of years ago failed to gain access (despite Solomon's enthusiastic attempts to jump up to an unreachable ledge by running straight into the wall :D ) so when my daughter mentioned she had been to a building which provided food for homeless people and had a big theatre in the back I baked a cake and hopped on the bus immediately.

    Manchester Village Youth organisation are hoping to secure funding and start restoration of this fantastic Grade 2 listed building. The group needs volunteers to help with fundraising and work on improving the building. October 10th will be the Hippodrome's 110th anniversary and an event is planned for that day.

    Despite water damage on the upper floor the hall retains its grandeur and was an impressive sight.
