We have great plans but we’re not quite there yet….
and we will need your help!

Leeds City Council have committed significant public funding support, and we are on track to secure almost £7m from Arts Council England.

In addition, the Yorkshire based Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation have made a substantial donation to help us halve our original fundraising target.

We are now seeking support from our current Patrons, donors and sponsors, and will
be launching a Public Appeal soon. There are many ways to get involved and exciting
options for supporters – please help us deliver a Playhouse for the 21st Century.

To find out more please contact the Playhouse Development Team
