Arthouse Plans For Wakefield

It's hoped Wakefield will welcome more arts and culture to the district - as a new centre of creativity is to be brought to the city.

The arts facility will be part of an extension on the Theatre Royal - which is due to open in 2018.

Katie Town, the executive director at the Theatre Royal Wakefield, said: "It's a new extension to the theatre and it is really going to increase the amount of work that we can do for young people in the community and also the types of performances we can do.

"At a time when we have just seen the closure of Unity Works, it is a great time to celebrate some really great positive messages about what culture can bring to Wakefield and this new centre for creativity is going to be a vibrant hub for performing arts".
