What will I see and do?

There will also be a trail of unmanned exhibitions you can go look at in your own time around the building. You will also find a sensory activity available near the entrance.

Getting there and parking:

– Find out how to get to Leeds Playhouse with Google Maps.
– Victoria Gate (John Lewis) car park
– Buses/mini buses can do turning circle and drop off at plagues square, as can cars.
– NcP on New York street is good for car parking – the most accessible route is through the market towards John Lewis and the bus station, then across the road.
– Templar Street parking is good for mini-buses because there is no height restriction.
– For public transport via bus the location is ideal. It is just across the road from Leeds Bus station.

Sensory Activity: The BOC (Beautiful Octopus Club) will have a stall  downstairs near the entrance where there will also be a sensory activity run by First Floor – Leeds Playhouse. There will also be a BOC shop for fun stuff to wear at a party.

After School slots: The bookable slots from 2.30- 4pm are for those who would like to visit without school. This can be independently, with parents or with a charity. Please spread the word of our SEND careers fair to anyone you think would be interested!

Please email [email protected] if you would like to attend and we will send a booking form over to you.
