Since 1990, Birmingham Royal Ballet has been proud to call the city of Birmingham home. 62,500 pointe shoes later, the Company has presented some 139 different ballets at Birmingham Hippodrome over the course of around 225 weeks of performances.

As an expression of gratitude to the city that became its home 25 years ago, Birmingham Royal Ballet is marking World Ballet Day by offering all Birmingham residents the chance to see their own ballet company live on stage. Beginning at 9am on Thursday October 1, the Company will open up online access to hundreds of free tickets for its autumn mixed bill programme, Variations, to the people of Birmingham.
