As part of Gloucester’s Cultural Strategy and its aspiration to be a UK City of Culture, Gloucester Culture Trust is seeking a freelance Producer to lead the strategic development of Gloucester’s Festivals & Events and ensure they meet the city’s long-term objectives.

Gloucester Culture Trust (GCT) was set up in 2016 to deliver the city’s ten-year Cultural Vision & Strategy.

We work in partnership – locally, regionally and nationally – to create, test and deliver projects which will make Gloucester a city full of culture.

You will be an exceptional leader and highly skilled at inspiring and enabling people to engage in ambitious, new activity.

GCT is delivering a three-year, £3.1million project called Great Place, a programme of cultural development devised by GCT on behalf of Gloucester City Council and funded through the National Lottery.
