West Yorkshire Playhouse faces pressure on every aspect of its funding. As a registered charity we strive to ensure that our education work comes at little or no cost to those who most value it; that we continue to produce world-class ambitious performances for our audiences; and that we nurture the next generation of theatre makers and artists.

As a leading regional theatre, we must be a major force for creating the artists, writers, actors and directors of the future, focusing our efforts on developing local talent. We want to extend our community programme – working with schools and with those with special needs; broaden our Youth Theatre; to continue our award winning Heydays programme for the over 55s and our important work for people living with dementia.

Playhouse Patrons 

By making a regular donation to the Playhouse you will become a Playhouse Patron; part of a family of supporters who are helping us to shape its future. As a Patron you can experience the many different aspects of the Playhouse with performers, directors and fellow supporters.

To join Playhouse Patrons, or for further information contact Dara Romaniw.

One-Off Donations

The most effective way of making a donation is to set up a regular gift via direct debit (link here to WYPpatrons) but if you are unable to do so or would like your donation to fund something specific you can make a one-off donation to the Playhouse when buying a ticket or by contacting the Development Team on 0113 213 7256.
