Hippodrome announces last dance

Iconic Kingston Upon Thames club, Hippodrome, will be closing its doors for the last time on Saturday 14th July.

The Deltic Group owned venue, renowned for hosting live music acts, has been a feature of Kingston’s late night entertainment for 23 years.  All 20 staff will have the opportunity to continue their employment at sister venue PRYZM Kingston.

Deltic’s Regional Director, Adrian Swain, said: “It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to Hippodrome that has given so many people such fond memories over the years.  However, the spirit of Hippodrome will live on at PRYZM as we look to invest in the venue and continue to bring world class entertainment to the people of Kingston.”

Hippodrome won’t be bowing out quietly, as a big send off party will take place on Saturday 14th July from 10pm to 4am, featuring DJ sets from current and former residents.

“We are going to give Hippodrome the goodbye it deserves and look forward to raising the roof with classic club anthems from throughout the decades,” added Adrian.

Tickets will be available from https://www.kingstonhippodrome.co.uk/kingston-upon-thames/events.

Hippodrome – formerly the Works Nightclub in 2000 and Volts Nightclub in 1995 – is part of The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator for late night bars and clubs with 55 venues throughout the UK, employing 3,000 people.
