L.I.F.T. is about ...
launching our beautiful theatre forwards to face a bigger and brighter future. It’s about giving it a much-needed facelift, whether that’s better access or more desirable décor. But it’s chiefly about bringing people together.
Just like in the early days of the Halifax Playhouse where members worked together to build, hone and improve this stunning, listed building, safeguarding and preserving it as a prestigious arts venue fit for purpose and the future.

Together we can make it happen.
