Support Us

Help us to carry on our work in the community

At over 125 years old, Theatre Royal Wakefield holds the memories of thousands from the Wakefield district and further afield.

What’s 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.

If you would like to continue supporting Theatre Royal Wakefield and ensuring we are able to provide future generations with the same magical memories, please consider leaving us a gift in your will. Every gift is greatly appreciated and can play a huge part in the future of Theatre Royal Wakefield.

My family and I are very proud to be supporters of Theatre Royal Wakefield. It’s not an exaggeration to say that it has played a huge part in my life. I started my acting career at this beautiful theatre and have made lifelong friends along the way. My son has begun to share in the passion for theatre through the remarkable work undertaken by the Performance Academy team. Long may it continue.
