Fatboy Slim gives his backing to Brighton Hippodrome restoration dreams

3rd March 2016

Professor Gavin Henderson CBE, Trustee of The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in The Argus.

Fatboy Slim has given his backing to the campaign to restore the Hippodrome to its former glory after witnessing the venue’s stunning interior for himself.

The globe-trotting DJ was guest of honour during a hard hat tour of the grade II* listed theatre on Tuesday and told The Argus he was blown away by the size, beauty and good condition of the venue.

And the 52-year-old – aka Norman Cook – has said he would love to perform at the historic venue and follow in the footsteps of The Beatles if it reopens.

Norman got involved in the campaign when he spoke to a Save The Hippodrome campaigner at a book launch and described the tour, where he joined Theatres Trust trustee Professor Gavin Henderson and Brighton Hippodrome CIC’s David Fisher, as “mindblowing”.
