This is an exciting time to join Theatre by the Lake. Audiences are returning, our team is growing and we’re planning for the future with ambition and renewed focus. In 2024-25 we will celebrate our 25th anniversary, presenting the opportunity to celebrate our history, connect with past, present and new audiences and supporters and look ahead to the next 25 years of theatre in Cumbria.
What we are looking for
We’re looking for Trustees who share our passion for theatre and the transformational power of the arts. We’re particularly looking for applicants with the following skills and backgrounds:
• Audiences, Marketing and Sales including the use of digital capabilities and data analysis
• Fundraising and philanthropy, including working with Trusts and Foundations, individual giving and on capital projects
• Diversity and inclusivity, including the strategic implementation of improvements within an organisation, and for the people it serves
Theatre by the Lake strives to present a vibrant and diverse programme. We believe we can do this most successfully if our Trustees and workforce encompass a broad range of vantage points. We particularly encourage applications from people under the age of 30; deaf and disabled people; and applicants who identify as being of global majority heritage.
As an organisation rooted in place, we are also looking for people who live in or have an affiliation with Cumbria.
