Wakefield Theatre Trust owns and runs Theatre Royal Wakefield in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
As the district's flagship theatre, Theatre Royal Wakefield provides a diverse and accessible artistic programme, working towards its core mission of "making the popular challenging and the challenging popular".
The engages with thousands of people each year through learning and participation programmes and community initiatives, introducing many people to the joy of the performing arts for the very first time.
A full restoration of the Theatre is scheduled for 2014. This will restore our beautiful Victorian building- the smallest of Frank Matcham's great theatres- to its original glory. However, support from funders, businesses and generous individuals is required to enable us to go ahead with these ambitious plans.
