If you are having a wedding including children don’t worry as although the rest of the Hippodrome is strictly for 18s only, the cabaret room has a balcony that can be de-licensed for the duration of the wedding service. The law states that weddings must be open to both children & adults.
Owner Simon Thomas’ ambition is to provide elements of Las Vegas throughout the venue & the idea is to offer an Elvis impersonator who can officiate at future ceremonies, should couples require. However they will still provide traditional weddings, but the Hippodrome is undoubtedly a venue for a more glamorous & unusual marriage ceremony.
