Halifax Playhouse building is over 186 years old, starting life as a Methodist Chapel in January 1836.

The Halifax Thespians took over ownership and converted it into a theatre in 1947.

Thousands of memories live in the very foundations of this lovely Grade II listed building

Please consider leaving a gift in your Will to the Halifax Thespians so that many more happy memories can be made for years to come.
