Built in 1913, the Hippodrome Theatre, originally as a music hall but eventually used as pre- and post- West End performances; it was also a popular venue for The D’O’yly Carte Company. In 1969 it was bought by the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) who used it as a radio station and a concert hall. The BBC invited many top rock bands including Queen; top comedy acts; drama and musicals; even boxing was broadcasted from this diverse venue.
However, the good times faded away when the BBC sold the building in 2003 and it became just another neglected building, another lost theatre.
1n 2007 the building was given a completely new purpose becoming the El Shaddai International Christian centre.
