We have enjoyed facilities at a number of locations in Leeds over the years.
Many of our members will remember the variety of places we have worked over the years, some fondly and others we might prefer to forget. The society has rehearsed, built & stored scenery, props & costumes and performed in places as diverse as Stansfeld Chambers, 43 & 43a Cookridge Street, a disused swimming bath, old people's homes, local YWCA halls, Leeds Town Hall, libraries, church halls and of course two premier theatres in the centre of Leeds.
Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds
In November 2005 Leeds Children's Theatre's production of David Wood's THE IDEAL GNOME EXPEDITION was the first to be staged at the newly opened Carriageworks Theatre. Sadly two of our oldest supporters and longstanding members, Edna Barwell and Bill Fawcett, both passed away in 2005 and never got a chance to see the Carriageworks Theatre completed. Later, at the theatre's official opening by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, in May 2006, two memorial plaques were revealed in memory of Edna and Bill.
Love Architecture Festival 2013 has an interesting webpage about the Carriageworks Theatre building
