Meet the Leaders at Wakefield Theatre

As part of Wakefield Business Week (2-6 June), Theatre Royal Wakefield invite you to share in the magic of a venue much loved by its community.

The act of attending a show is only part of the connection the Theatre has with its audiences. The speakers will talk about the place that the Theatre holds in the hearts and minds of the community and how the team have engaged them as supporters and ambassadors, while the technical team will share some of the magic that makes a visit to Theatre Royal Wakefield so unique.


Sir Rodney Walker, Honorary Life President
Sir Rodney will talk about taking the Theatre from a derelict building into a vibrant going-concern and what has made that possible.

Murray Edwards, Executive Director of Theatre Royal Wakefield
Murray will discuss how they are changing attitudes to the Theatre so that it is seen as both a charity and as somewhere to do business. Murray will also talk about the plans for the restoration of this grade II listed building.
