The Lawrence Batley Theatre

Director & CEO

Salary: £42,000 - £44,000
Location: Yorkshire

We are seeking an exceptional person to lead the Lawrence Batley Theatre (LBT) through the next phase of our development.

We are seeking an exceptional Director with the vision, ambition and strategic skills to lead the LBT and build on our history

The LBT is a middle scale theatre based in Huddersfield in Pennine West Yorkshire.  We opened in September 1994 as a result of an almost 20-year long campaign by a coalition of stakeholders. The theatre is housed in a Grade II* listed building which was previously a Methodist chapel.

We are seeking an exceptional Director with the vision, ambition and strategic skills to lead the LBT and build on our history - 24 years of inspiring local communities to engage with the arts.

Inheriting a strong programme, a high-performing team, a dedicated Board and a secure financial base, this is a unique opportunity to shape and grow a theatre that genuinely strives to offer something to everyone in the diverse communities of Huddersfield, Batley and Dewsbury in Pennine West Yorkshire.
