December 2018 Highlights at The Bristol Hippodrome

Posted on: 04 Dec 2018

The Bristol Hippodrome is one of the country's top, family-friendly provincial theatres, which proudly continues to stage major West End and Broadway productions. It caters for all, whether you prefer musicals, ballet, opera, concerts, comedians or children’s shows, the venue’s busy programme is bound to have something to suit every taste. If you plan to visit the Hippodrome December is a great month, since there are many highlights like the English National Ballet with Swan Lake, or like Cinderella!

Swan Lake

Swan Lake - English National Ballet - 1st December 2018 (Last chance!)

English National Ballet brings the timeless classical ballet to life in this enthralling production. Be captivated by the romance of Prince Siegfried’s love for the Swan Queen Odette, and the drama of their battle against the evil sorcerer Rothbart; and fall for the magnificent sight of ballerinas in white tutus moving in unison: one of ballet’s most iconic images. Beloved for its superb dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s glorious music, played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic, Derek Deane’s Swan Lake is a thrill for the dedicated fan or first-time ballet-goer.

The first December will be your last chance to see Swan Lake at the Hippodrome in Bristol, so get your tickets now!


Cinderella - starting at 8th December 2018

Strictly Come Dancing sensation, comedian, king of pantomime and musical theatre star Brian Conley leads the cast in the Fairy Godmother of all pantomimes, Cinderella. In this family-friendly show packed with spectacular special effects and laugh-out-loud comedy, everyone’s favourite fashion guru Gok Wan will be offering helpful style tips to The Ugly Sisters and creating the most magical ball gown in panto-land for Cinderella in his role as The Fairy Gokmother.
