Nottingham Playhouse Trust Ltd


Nottingham Playhouse Trust Ltd is seeking two proactive, passionate and effective advocates for the arts to join its Board as Trustees. The Board meets 6 times a year in Nottingham, and there are occasional sub group meetings. Trustees are also expected to attend press nights for each in-house production and other Nottingham Playhouse activities whenever possible.

Under Artistic Director Adam Penford and Chief Executive Stephanie Sirr, Nottingham Playhouse mounts varied and ambitious productions, attracting a host of high-profile performers and creatives, garnering increasing media attention and commercial interest. To compliment the skills of our current Trustees we are seeking people who have experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Writing/directing/performing/theatre making
  • Business performance management
  • Fundraising
  • Building links between education and theatre
  • An understanding of current trends in theatre

We are particularly keen to hear from potential Trustees who would help broaden the diversity of our board including helping to lower the age demographic.

Please note this is an unpaid, non-executive role. Reasonable expenses for attending Board meetings will be offered.

Nottingham Playhouse is committed to a policy of equality of opportunity and creating a workforce representative of the diverse communities we work with. We actively encourage applications from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Disabled people.
