What is First Floor?

First Floor is West Yorkshire Playhouse's venue just for young people.

First Floor is West Yorkshire Playhouse's venue for you if you are aged 11 to 19 (14 to 25 with a learning disability). Whether you want to try something new or develop your skills, there are lots of different music, drama and art activities on offer.

We are also proud to announce that First Floor has been named Best Place in leeds for Children and Young People - read more here.

At First Floor we want to help young people to learn new skills, discover new talents and interests and meet new people. We want to help you find out what you're good at and develop it. We also want young people to be able to learn about the different kinds of jobs within a theatre and find out how to get more experience or training.

During the school day we run programmes for groups of young people, not in full time education, training or employment.


Located in the city centre, First Floor boasts a spacious and flexible performing arts studio, visual arts studio, Green Room and a large reception and informal meeting area. First Floor is fully accessible and forms part of 6 St Peter's Building.

First Floor is an Arts Award Welcome Centre and all First Floor activities can contribute towards Arts Award qualifications. If you are interested in doing an Arts Award with us then get in touch. Click here to find out how.

I feel proud to be part of it, makes me feel special.
