50 Years of Leeds Playhouse Exhibition : Yorkshire

This event is no longer available.

Formerly the West Yorkshire Playhouse, this exciting exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the playhouse and marking its re-opening, will be displayed in the foyer areas of the theatre.

Curated by Courtney Spencer and drawing on the Playhouse’s archive, the exhibition will celebrate the story of this remarkable theatre. From its beginnings, when it was set up by the people of Leeds, to the present day as one of the country’s leading producing theatres, displays will highlight the people, the places, the shows, celebrating memorable events and our links with the community. 

As well as a wide collection of photographic material, artist Cait McEniff, whose recent work includes a celebration of Kirkgate Market, has been commissioned to create a series of illustrations inspired by Playhouse memories from our Creative Engagement participants and the wider public. 

Come and celebrate why the Playhouse has been at the heart of Leeds for half a century.

It's been great to have Jill back in the office helping to put together some new events as well as rescheduling some that were unable to go ahead last year. Unfortunately, a few events that we had planned in the coming weeks have had to be adapted or postponed due to the pause to the ending of Coronavirus restrictions, but we will continue to do what we can when we can, and the speed of the vaccination programme gives us great hope that we can return to normal later in the summer.

What fun we had in York on Tuesday when Spice Military were admitted as interactive exhibits of the 20th Century Entertainment Corps at York Army Museum. We have a certificate to prove it! The museum has a range of exhibits from the 17th century right through to the story of Captain Sir Tom Moore, and we were honoured to meet Florence Nightingale too!

Ten Pin Bowling fans will be happy to hear that we have at last managed to get bookings at Sheffield on Wednesday and Leeds on Thursday. We'll be playing 'normal' bowling this month, but we will return to our usual pyramid scoring once indoor social contact restrictions are removed.
