The Hippodrome was built by Edward Moss, who founded Britain's most successful chain of variety theatres in the mid-to late-19th century. He also owned the Royal Music Hall in Sunderland, the Gaiety Variety Theatre in Newcastle, the Empire Palace Theatre in Edinburgh, and dozens more Empire theatres throughout Britain. The Hippodrome itself was built as a venue for circuses and had an enormous tank for the display of water-borne animals such as seals.
