A Theatre For Tomorrow
For over 25 years, our building has brought the magic of live events to the people of Kirklees and beyond. As you can imagine, we needed a bit of TLC! Last year we kicked off a huge redevelopment project, the first in our history.
Our journey to becoming A Theatre For Tomorrow saw the project focusing on visitor experience and putting community and access at its heart. Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful community of supporters, we’ve been able to begin transforming our theatre.
Any donations, big or small, will help us completely transform the building so we can nurture more local talent. We aim to provide a broader range of opportunities for our community to engage with the arts, and this will help us to fulfil our mission to be the creative heart of Huddersfield and Kirklees.
You can donate using the links below and with your help we can become A Theatre For Tomorrow.
So, here is an update on our redevelopments:
We’ve got a fresh theatre, comfy new seats with better sight lines, brand new LED lighting, and an upgraded sound system.
Our green room has been brightened up and kitted out with a kitchenette, new furniture and refreshed decoration, to allow our visiting performers and their crew a comfortable relaxation space.
Accessible Dressing Room
We have created a brand-new dressing room with level access and facilities for people with limited mobility, helping to open up the theatres programme to more artists.
All other dressing rooms have also been renovated to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our performers on and off-stage.
Our brand-new multi-purpose participatory space is nearly ready, and is set to become home to more workshops, masterclasses, and creative opportunities for our community. A space for everyone, for anything.
With just the electrics and the kitchen left to go in, we can't wait to welcome you into the space, launching September 2022.
