There's a good site on the Hippodrome here (found whilst putting together the live pages) - some decent flyers on there.

Shame the flyers were binned - yeah, they still fetch quite a bit out there on ebayland - I grab 808-related ones (for the site), but there are those that buy all sorts - bit like cigarette cards, I suppose? :P

The link you posted mate was our first attempt m8 lol, we then started hippodromeravers on yahoo. we then started the website and the new forum. Like u i'm always searchin for stuff for the website, pics, flyers, videos and old regulars ov hippos for the forum. It becomes addictive / habit. We have done 3 reunions so far each one getting better. The 4th one is in its planning stages it promises to be even better.
