Birmingham Hippodrome

There is a Birmingham Hippodrome Heritage site that lists what was on every week from October 1899 to the present day. Click on this link and then click on 'Chronology' on the home screen. I cannot a see a 'Suzette' for the period 1945 to 1950 but for a lot of the weeks in that period the site just gives the phrase 'variety show.'

My dad was the Stage Manager of the Hippodrome in the 70s (He worked there from the 50s to about 1980).

I inherited all his memorabillia (30 years worth!) when he died a few years ago.
Ernie Clapham, was a great friend of our family. He was stage manager in the 50's up until he retired in the late 60's. Was your dad Harry Brown?
