Buy a Star

The new Centre for Creativity features a striking Wall of Fame marking some of the biggest names in Theatre Royal Wakefield's history - and you can be a part of it too!

This year Theatre Royal Wakefield is pushing forward with the brand new Centre For Creativity, transforming the way people experience live theatre in Wakefield.

With a glass-fronted contemporary cafe/bar space and a new 60 seat studio theatre, the Centre for Creativity enhances your experience of theatre in the main house as well as providing a stage for new talent to grow and develop into the stars of tomorrow.

If you share our vision and are inspired by an accessible and creative programme of performing arts in the new Centre for Creativity then please support the Theatre’s Buy a Star Campaign.
