Laugh, cry and sing-along at the Playhouse

Leeds, West Yorkshire

Since opening in 1990, the Playhouse has become one of Leeds' premiere events venues.

Steeped in history, the current Playhouse (successor to the Leeds Playhouse) has only been around since 1990. But with a former roster including Peter O'Toole, John Neville and Tony Robinson, it's little wonder the WY Playhouse has quickly become a staple of Leeds' arts scene.

With two main theatres – the 750-capacity Quarry and 350-strong Courtyard – the Playhouse continues to attract headline acts from across the entertainment spectrum, from comedy heavyweights including Stewart Lee to family favourite stage shows such as The Jungle Book. And if all that guffawing, crying or 'oh no he didn't'ing’ has left you hoarse and hungry, there's a restaurant open Monday to Saturday.
