Bringing dementia-friendly theatre to Leeds
Leeds Playhouse is proud to be a dementia-friendly theatre. We offer regular opportunities for people living with dementia (older people and people with young-onset dementia) and their partners to attend creative sessions and theatre performances.
The majority of our staff are Dementia Friends, and some have attended further training to specifically support customers with dementia. Dementia can be an incredibly isolating condition, but we know that there is hope and joy to be found through exploring our creativity in a supportive and understanding environment.
Leeds Playhouse is proud to have been recognised with two major national awards for this pioneering work: Best Dementia Friendly Project 2015 and Outstanding Innovation in Dementia Care 2015.
