Hippodrome

Overview

The Hippodrome is an arts space where people of all ages can meet to enjoy theatre, music, exhibitions, poetry and film in the picturesque fishing town of Eyemouth. It is run by Hippodrome Arts CIC Ltd and alongside a changing programme of events will offer courses, talks, concerts, film screenings and activities to visitors and the community.

The Hippodrome is located on the harbour in an historic building, once the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen. Originally built in the 1830’s as a granary, the building was used for fishing trade activities from running boats, gutting, packing and smoking fish, to stabling horses, mending nets and holding parties and celebrations in the sail loft. Along the way it acquired the nickname of “the Hippodrome”, probably after the Hippodrome in Great Yarmouth where the herring boat fleet gathered each year at the end of the season.
