The doors of the historic Hippodrome will open to the public once again as renovation work continues.

The Grade II* listed building in Middle Street, Brighton, once served as an ice rink before becoming a circus ring and a concert hall.

It has been closed since 2007 after falling into disrepair.

But work on the 127-year-old Hippodrome is well under way, with more than £5 million put in to renovate the roof and prevent water from seeping in.

Paintwork has been completed on the ceiling and above the stage in the style of how it was when theatre architect Frank Matcham redesigned it in 1902.

Scaffolding has now been taken down and visitors are being invited for a second time to view the work, following a recent open day last month.

Development firm Matsim bought the building in September 2020 with plans to create a performance space with a restaurant, rooftop bar and terrace, as well as a new “apart-hotel”.

Those wanting to visit and see the interior can turn up tomorrow between 9am and midday.
