Here at Theatre Royal Wakefield, we run a busy Participation programme, using the performing arts to enhance the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds from across the Wakefield district. In 2022/2023, we delivered 693 participation sessions with 2,246 people (14,048 instances of participation).

In addition to watching great shows, there are lots of ways for everyone to get involved, support their wellbeing and develop new connections through the performing arts. Whether it be accessing top-notch performing arts training, taking part in one-off workshops, performing in a show, practicing English or even joining a choir, there’s something for everyone here at Theatre Royal Wakefield.

Theatre Royal Wakefield believes that every member of staff, including freelancers, chaperones and volunteers have a duty to actively safeguard the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk who participate in our projects, or visit the theatre. We have developed policies with clear procedures and guidelines for all individuals to be aware of and follow.

Our Safeguarding Children and Young people policy can be found by clicking here.

Our Safeguarding Adults at Risk policy and Behaviour policy can be made available on request.
