Yeah Steve the old Dudley Hippodrome which has been unused for it's got to be 4-5 years now is a listed building which is why it's not been knocked down well before now.

I can't see it re-opening in any way shape or form as an entertainment venue the campaign has been going a long time and has intensifed since the locals were disapointed about the new JB's, their was a strong push for Dudley council to take it on.....which has been promptly and consitently ignored.

TBH it would need a big investment even if the place was sold for nothing to an interested party to make it work, it's not a venue waiting to be opened it will have to be brought up to standard and have some work done to it to transform it into a live venue. TBH a basement venue doesn't sound great and would a theatre do well in Dudley?

Yeah you're right about competition on the cark park, i bet the place is rammed whenever there's a wedding do on at JB's and ofcourse this will include Saturdays/easter/Summer Holidays during the day cause it's not just catering for the 'night do' it caters for the reception and meal ect....and as you know Steve Indian weddings are HUGE!!! it's like the whole of the local community have turned out for it!
