As well as watching great shows, there are a number of ways you can take part in top-notch performing arts training, one-off workshops or even perform in a show here at Theatre Royal Wakefield. Last year our team ran 582 training or participation sessions with 2,546 people.

Theatre Royal Wakefield has a full safeguarding policy that applies across all of our projects and is updated regularly. You can access that here.

For children and young people interested in performing arts, there are lots of ways you can take part…

Our work with local communities uses performing arts to enhance the lives of those who need it the most. We work with socially isolated older people, adults working to improve their mental wellbeing and asylum seekers and refugees. In October 2019 we were awarded Theatre of Sanctuary status from the City of Sanctuary which acknowledges Theatre Royal Wakefield as a place of safety, welcome and support for refugees and asylum seekers.
