The London Hippodrome Programme 1900
Special Feature


Click to beginHello and welcome to the 2003 September Special Feature. Once again the feature is on the London Hippodrome but I make no apologies for that.

The feature is based around a programme for one of the London Hippodrome's very first Circus Shows. The date is July 30th 1900, just six months after it opened on the 15th January 1900. The owners are clearly very proud of their new theatre as the programme goes to great lengths to describe its innovative features, special equipment, elaborate fixtures and fittings, and Frank Matcham's wonderful auditorium.
