New non-executive directors sought by the Theatre Royal

The board of the Theatre Royal, in Bury St Edmunds, is now seeking new non-executives, initially to be appointed for three years but with the prospect of a second three year term.

As is the case with most small charities, as well as performing a governance role, trustees are expected to provide practical assistance and support to the executive team in areas in which they are qualified to do so.

Applications are invited from all those who feel they have something to contribute but preference will be given to individuals who are qualified and experienced in finance, the law and HR. Experience of income generation in an arts context would also be desirable.

All those who might be interested in these roles are encouraged to visit the theatre’s website to gain an understanding of the breadth of Theatre Royal’s activities but in summary, the theatre is far more than an arts venue. It has a very active youth theatre as well as the Associate Artists programme which involves working with a range of artists developing new material and working with different groups within our local and regional community.

For full details on the roles being offered visit – interested applicants should email a CV and short covering letter to Polly Turner (

There is no deadline for applications. It is intended that appointments will be made over the course of the next year, as and when good candidates are identified.
