You can support the Phoenix during this difficult time by donatiing to our "Curtain Up Appeal” With no income since March 2020 the theatre needs your help to continue our work and be able to reopen. Since opening in 2008 we have become a vital and important part of the Five Towns arts community providing much needed facilities and resources to many local community groups as well as bringing live entertainment and opportunities into the area with over 20,000 people attending our shows and events annually.
If you would like to show your support to the Phoenix please consider making a donation as every penny will help reopen our doors again and shows that the work of the Phoenix is both needed and appreciated.
If you want to get involved with the arts then the Castleford Phoenix Theatre is the venue for you. With workshops, events, groups and volunteering there are many ways that you can take part and help. For business we offer sponsorship opportunities, advertising, use as a venue and much more.
The Castleford Phoenix Theatre is unique in this area because:
• We are an integral part of the Castleford arts community and make a vital contribution to local cultural life.
• We are the second largest producing and receiving venue in the Wakefield area and THE CAST produce several productions per year.
• We are a resource that more people access each year from across the region, either as practitioners or audiences.
• We offer concessions for charity and none profit organisations that make us accessible to a wide range of users.
• A portion of the theatres profit is reinvested in supporting the Academy and the education of local children and through the Academies specialist sixth form work we support the next generation of the regions performers while working closely to give them the springboard they need to gain entry and succeed in their careers.
Our mission is to provide one of the regions leading centres for the arts, conferencing and education, with a regional reputation for excellence and innovation.
Your valued support allows us to continue and develop our work and ensure that the region can create and enjoy access to the arts right here in the heart of the community.
