Brighton Hippodrome campaign
Message of support from Dame Judi Dench:
social media release: Sunday 14 July 2014

I would like to add my voice to your list of supporters who are trying to prevent the redevelopment of this grand building. Brighton is a wonderful touring date in the theatre, and it seems tragic to turn the Hippodrome into something else entirely instead of restoring it to its former glory and original beauty. Frank Matcham must be spinning in his grave!

We have lost so many regional theatres that it would be wonderful to hear that this particular one is being restored rather than destroyed.

With best wishes
Judi Dench
