Community Network


The Community Network scheme allows community groups from across Leeds and West Yorkshire to see the shows and use the resources at the Playhouse.

Groups are entitled to special discount rates for Playhouse shows on specific dates. Network members may call on the expertise of Playhouse staff to help them organise a special event, bring a group for a backstage tour or take part in creative workshops. The Playhouse also holds Community Network open days and a Christmas Party where groups can publicise their work to Playhouse attenders and other network groups

There are currently 131 members of Community Network who can tailor the benefits of the scheme to suit their groups.

Community Network provides discounted tickets to its member groups - these are groups who cannot access the Playhouse though any of the other discount ticket schemes that the Playhouse offer. The Playhouse aims to have a range of groups represented within Community Network, with a particular emphasis on groups that are currently under-represented in Playhouse audiences and projects. Membership of Community Network is at the discretion of the Playhouse, and subject to an annual review, which will take place each June-July.

If you want more information about Community Network or you want an application form for your group please contact Richard Knowles, Arts Development Officer on 0113 213 7295 or

Best thing about Community Network is the inclusion and access to mainstream activities that have been culturally stimulating.
