The Hulme Hippodrome is a 120-year-old Grade II listed Edwardian theatre that played an important role in working-class entertainment in Manchester during the twentieth century. Designed by JJ Alley and erected by the Broadhead family enterprise, it is an iconic structure of social, historical, and architectural significance, featuring rococo plasterwork and intricate decoration. The building was even designated as an Asset of Community Value by Manchester City Council, recognising the theatre's cultural and social significance in the community. The hippodrome is one of the remaining surviving theatres in the North West of England, however it has been listed on Theatres Trust's 'Theatres at Risk' list since 2006. While it is structurally sound, it is deteriorating, with the roof and plasterwork showing the most signs of wear. The damage is not terminal; it can be saved.
