The West Yorkshire Playhouse (WYP) Community Network has provided a great number of opportunities for our Leeds customers to take a trip out of their ordinary lives, and into a world of theatre and sparkle.

Earlier in the month the WYP hosted a Christmas Party, which four of our customers attended along with staff. They were treated to a Christmas choir, a Christmas quiz and festive refreshments, before they were invited to see the latest production of Strictly Ballroom, showing at the theatre.


The customers thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. For one customer in particular, this evening was his first time out of the house for over three weeks. He was able to find the motivation to attend and the experience lifted his mood significantly.

These theatre trips are not only important for widening knowledge and cultural experience, they give our customers a real chance to break from social isolation and become more involved in the community.

Huge and sincere thanks to the WYP for their continued support and understanding for our work.
