The Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre is located in Leeds on Quarry Hill, next to BBC Yorkshire, West Yorkshire Playhouse and Leeds College of Music. The theatre is inside the stunning home of Northern Ballet and Phoenix Dance Theatre. We offer an exciting programme of dance, theatre and family friendly shows. 

In spring 2014 a thrilling season of dance comes to the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre. The season opens on 19 March with Tour D’Horizon by acclaimed Swiss dance company T42 Dance.  

National Dance Company Wales return with a triple bill of dazzling dance from world class choreographers and home-grown talent (25 – 26 March).

We're also looking forward to Last Man Standing by James Wilton Dance (14 May). A high energy dance piece fusing martial arts, breakdancing and capoeira.   

For your little ones, acclaimed children’s theatre company Tell Tale Hearts present Yummm! (23 May) -  a fun, energetic and vibrant dance theatre show.  

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Northern Ballet’s talented dancers up close in a new Mixed Programme (18 – 21 June) featuring works by Dutch dance master Hans van Manen, one of the US’s foremost dance makers Lar Lubovitch and Northern Ballet Premier Dancer and British choreographer Kenneth Tindall.

Also, as we’re in a fantastic building, we have great facilities to make your visit that bit more enjoyable. We have a café bar where you can grab a drink or really make a night of it with a pre-theatre meal.

Hopefully you'll be able to find all the information you need on our website, but if we've missed something, or you have any other questions, just contact us and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

We look forward to welcoming you soon. 

We have signed up to the Family Arts Standards. We welcome families and to help you enjoy your experience we are committed to ensuring that we meet these Standards.
