The Playhouse, Halifax

One of West Yorkshire’s leading venues for live theatre. Home of the Halifax Thespians, who bought and began to convert an Old Chapel in 1945 into what is now known as the Playhouse, this theatre has had actors walking the boards since their first production of ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ in September 1949.
