Message from Halifax Playhouse

Last updated: March 22, 2020


In response to the Government’s recent statement advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including by not attending theatres, Halifax Playhouse have suspended all performances until July 2020.

Updated information will be posted on here and on our social media when available.

This situation threatens the future of theatres and performers in this difficult time so we ask for your support and patience whilst we work to reschedule performances and ensure the safety of our volunteers, staff, performers and audiences.
