Call out for Trustees!
NTC are on the lookout for interesting and vibrant individuals to join our board of trustees!
NTC Touring Theatre Company Ltd.
NTC is a professional small-scale touring theatre company. In 2018 we moved to the Dovecote Centre, Dovecote Street, Amble, Northumberland. The company’s artistic policy is to provide professional touring theatre of the highest quality, particularly to theatreless zones in rural areas where access to live theatre is otherwise limited. NTC have been described as ‘one of the very best small theatre companies in the country’ by the Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal.
We are looking for people to join our board and support us at this exciting and crucial time in our development as we expand our range of creative activities. Our board of trustees has overall responsibility for the charity and ensuring that the organisation is managed effectively, ethically and sustainably. Being a trustee will enable you to use your knowledge and experience to support our work and the cultural sector more widely. It will also give you the opportunity to develop new skills.
More information about being a trustee can be found on the Charity Commission website by clicking HERE.
