  • Notes: The Birmingham Hippodrome re-opened on 18 September with a very strong Variety bill that included comedians. This was the Hippodrome?s first war-time show To reflect the risks of the time, the Hippodrome changed its performance times to 17:35 and 19:45 and asked patrons to ?please bring your gas mask".
