In time for the festive period Darlington Hippodrome has launched a selection of theatre-themed merchandise.

Finding the right gift for the theatre-loving person in your life will no longer be a drama. Darlington Hippodrome has launched a selection of theatre-themed merchandise that will appeal to all tastes and won’t break the bank.

A set of 5 charity Christmas cards with envelopes can be picked up for just £4. The cards are designed with high quality images of the newly restored theatre and auditorium. Proceeds from the sale of these cards will go towards the theatre’s A Place For Everyone charity fund which opens up the theatre to audiences, practitioners and performers, regardless of social, physical or economic barriers.

Also on offer is a selection of hand-made Christmas tree decorations taking three different theatrical forms. There’s a gold and silver chandelier reminiscent of those present in the Hippodrome. There’s the character Marie from the much loved ballet The Nutcracker and finally one of the most famous characters in musical theatre – the Phantom of the Opera! Each hand made decoration is available for just £8.

Naturally you will need a bag to carry home your new purchases, so look no further than a screen-printed tote bag with Hippodrome branding at just £5. There’s no better way to show your love and support for theatre.
