Northern Stage invites expressions of interest to become

Trustee of Northern Stage
Chair of the Board of Northern Stage

Northern Stage is the largest producing theatre in the North East of England, and one of the top 12 producing theatres in the UK. Northern Stage enjoys a proud history of being a theatre of innovation, of serving artists and audiences of the North East whilst maintaining a national and international profile. As well as our work in Newcastle, we regularly tour nationally and curate a critically acclaimed programme at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

As a result of a number of Board Members nearing the end of their terms of office, we are currently seeking to appoint three new board members, including a new Chair, to work with the rest of the Board and the Executive to achieve our ambitions.

We're looking for people who share our passion for theatre and our ambition for Northern Stage and its work. We are looking for people who can bring skills, knowledge and experience that will complement that of existing board members. We're looking for people who can think strategically, work collaboratively and want to make a significant contribution to the future of Northern Stage.

Northern Stage are committed to equal opportunities and are working to broaden the diversity of our Board of Directors to be more representative of our city and region. We welcome applications from all sectors of the community, including both those who are new to non-executive/trustee board work, and individuals who have a proven track record in senior governance roles. The Board would particularly welcome applications from suitably skilled and experienced people from groups covered by the Equality Act 2010, such as those with a disability or from an ethnic minority background.
