About us

First Floor is close to West Yorkshire Playhouse. It is opposite BBC Yorkshire, next door to Yorkshire Dance and directly above The Wardrobe Bar & Jazz Club. Look for the bright red door!

First Floor aims to be accessible to everyone. We have lift access and entry is from the street via a buzzer. We have a disabled toilet and a changing bed. A hearing loop is in place at Reception. There is a Changing Places toilet in the main West Yorkshire Playhouse building.

If you require one to one support, please bring a Personal Assistant or carer with you.

We can sometimes help you pay to take part in Projects or Weekly Workshops, or we can help you get to First Floor, but you need to contact us to discuss this.
