A core element of the Playhouse’s creative activity is the award-winning Creative Engagement department, which delivers a full programme of education and community initiatives for you to get involved in. The department uses theatre to open up possibilities for people regardless of their age, circumstances or background.
Working with approximately 10,000 people each year, Creative Engagement comprises four strands of activity: Playhouse Youth, Older People, Creative Education and Communities. Alongside these strands is also our pioneering work with refugees and asylum seekers as the UK’s first Theatre of Sanctuary.

In 2014 West Yorkshire Playhouse became the first ever Theatre of Sanctuary, a public statement and recognition of our commitment to being a place of safety, hospitality and support for refugees and asylum seekers.
