Legacy giving

Support Us

Theatre Royal Wakefield is over 125 years old, thousands of memories live in the very foundations of the building.

What is your favourite memory of the Theatre?

Ours is you. Without your support, we wouldn’t have been able to provide so many people with the joy and wonder that comes from experiencing live theatre.

Please consider leaving a gift in your Will to Theatre Royal Wakefield so that many more happy memories can be made for years to come.


As Theatre Royal Wakefield is a registered charity, leaving a gift in your will to the Theatre is exempt from inheritance tax and any gift, regardless of size, will go a long way to support the work we do. Anyone who leaves 10% or more of their net estate to charity can also benefit from a reduced inheritance tax rate of 36% (normally 40%).

If you choose to remember us in your will, please ensure that you use our full name, registered address, and charity number: Wakefield Theatre Trust, Drury Lane, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF1 2TE. Registered Charity Number: 503597.

We promise that your gift will be gratefully received and effectively used, no matter its size.

In Memory Giving

Theatre Royal Wakefield has played a central role in the lives of many in the Wakefield District and beyond. If this is true for a loved one of yours who has passed away, you may like to consider purchasing them a Star on our Wall of Fame or organising a funeral collection.
