The Waterton Building & Mechanics’ Theatre

In 2012 the College was delighted to acquire the Grade 2 listed Wakefield Museum building, which was built in 1823, to develop into a Performing Arts Centre. Situated only a little over 300 metres from the Wakefield City Campus, the Waterton Building includes as its centre-piece the 160 seat Mechanics’ Theatre, named in honour of one of the building’s previous uses. The centre also includes drama and dance studios, spacious rehearsal rooms and backstage workshops.
