The UK's Most Welcoming Theatre Award is an accolade which is awarded annually at the UK Theatre Awards
in October. UK Theatre Organisation Members are invited to apply for the Award and tell us why you’re a welcoming theatre in three ways; your place, your people and your programme.
In 2022, Leeds Playhouse won the Award, which was given to them at the UK Theatre Awards 2022 ceremony on 23 October at London's Guildhall. Leeds Playhouse were presented this Award for their inviting, engaging, accessible and inclusive creative environment and being the first Theatre of Sanctuary for refugees and those seeking asylum.
