HELP US TO THRIVE, NOT JUST SURVIVE
For over 400 years, Leeds Grand Theatre, City Varieties Music Hall and our sister venue, Hyde Park Picture House, have been entertaining the people of Leeds and the wider region. Now our future is uncertain.
We're doing all that we can to ensure our survival through this period, as well as prepare for the economic uncertainty that we know will follow. We've furloughed 95% of our staff, keeping on a small team to manage customer refunds, reschedule performances and maintain necessary administrative functions. We're drawing on our reserves which we had planned to invest back into our three heritage buildings, and we're tentatively making plans for what measures we will need to put in place to help audiences feel confident to return when we are able to reopen.
We're hugely grateful to customers who have already donated to our theatres since closure. We know these are financially difficult times for everybody, but if you can donate to help us continue to thrive, not just survive after reopening, we would be exceedingly grateful.
In such dark times, theatre is a positive force – it provides an opportunity for people from all backgrounds to come together to share a common bond – a love for live performance. We cannot let our theatres fade into the darkness.
