Not everyone knows it, but Theatre Royal Wakefield is a charity and we don’t receive any regular public funding, we rely on the generous support of people like you. By donating, joining theatre+, buying a star or getting involved in one of our fundraising events or activities you are helping to enrich lives in Wakefield through our work on and off stage.


People donate for many reasons. Some have special memories of trips to our Theatre, others want to support the work we do with young people and in the community or our artistic programme. Some want to access priority booking through our membership scheme, Theatre+. Whatever the reason, your support is vital to our work.

If you have any questions about supporting Theatre Royal Wakefield, have a fundraising idea that you would like to share with us, or would like to find out more about ways that we could work together, we would love to hear from you.
