At the beginning of September we launched our #SaveOurTheatres Crowdfunder Campaign. #SaveOurTheatres was part of a national initiative launched by Theatres Trust. Since we closed our doors in March, the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic forced us to make some tough decisions. Although we were able to offer support through restarting face-to-face community activities, while we had no shows, we we're unable to generate the income that allows us to operate and deliver our life changing activities.
Today our crowdfunder campaign came to close and we are thrilled to announce we managed to raise a fantastic £5,376 plus a further £1000+ in gift aid. 194 supporters donated during this time and left us some wonderful message of love and support.

0 StarsGood luck Theatre Royal Wakefield! You deserve saving for art and the community.
0 StarsThe life enriching experience of going to a theatre has been badly missed during this pandemic. They provide us with music, laughter, culture, food for thought among other things. I support the scheme all the way.
This generous support will help ensure we can turn the lights back on for live performances and carry on our life changing work with the wider community.
