Darlington Civic Theatre

Darlington Hippodrome ran as the Darlington Civic Theatre until may 2016. Itfirst opened, in 1907, under the magnificent title: The New Hippodrome & Palace of Varieties, under the direction of quick-change artist Signor Rino Pepi. Over the years, a host of famous names have graced the stage, from Anna Pavlova to Tommy Cooper and, recently, Sarah Millican and Darcey Bussell.

Following a major refurbishment starting in early 2016, the theatre re-opened in November 2017.

The theatre is just a five minutes walk from the town centre and train station. The nearest car park is opposite the Health Centre in Park Place and is free after 6pm.
