Message from Halifax Playhouse

Last updated: JULY 21 , 2020


Thank you for your interest and loyalty to the Halifax Thespians and to our lovely theatre, the Halifax Playhouse.

We do not expect to open The Playhouse until after Christmas this year and the exact timescale is still dependent upon Government and scientific advice and through discussions led by the Little Theatres Guild, of which we are members.

We also need to undertake remedial work to the roof of The Playhouse, which requires approval from the Heritage Commission as it is a Grade II listed building. So this work may also impact our re-opening date.

We look forward to when we can again invite you to the Halifax Playhouse and we thank you for your patience and support during these challenging times.

We will continue to place regular updates here, through social media and through emailed newsletters to our subscribers.
We hope you stay healthy and safe and look forward to welcoming you back to The Playhouse.

Halifax Thespians Board and Management Committee
