South Hill Park Arts Centre is the creative heart of Berkshire; serving the local community for 43 years and launching the careers of eminent artists such as Kate Winslett, Jamie Cullum and Eddie Izzard. The Trust is about to embark on a transition year; re-negotiating its funding agreement with the local authority, developing other income streams and implementing a stronger commercial strategy, whilst retaining our unique and high quality artistic and workshop programme. We are therefore looking to strengthen the Board of Trustees to help guide us through this period of change. The Trust would like to hear from individuals with a passion for the arts who have demonstrable experience in finance, education, business or arts management.
About South Hill Park Arts Centre
South Hill Park is truly the Creative Heart of Berkshire. Housing two theatres, a dance studio, creative spaces and a cinema within the grounds of an 18th century mansion house in Bracknell.
Last year over 270,000 people passed through the doors of the arts centre to take part in one of the many activities offered. South Hill Park offers visitors over 300 shows, events and films each year, alongside a busy programme of over 250 courses and workshops.
Visitors can expect a fairly eclectic mix of entertainment; from big-named comedians on their warm up tours to nationally renowned ballet companies, and from quality in-house drama to an annual pantomime. For those wishing to truly immerse themselves, there are a range of course in arts and crafts, drama, dance and digital media.
