Help shape the future of Arts & Culture in West Cumbria by joining our Board of Trustees


We are looking to increase our number of Trustees and are looking for enthusiastic individuals that have a passion for arts, theatre and entertainment.  Trustees are collectively responsible for the continued success and sustainability of the Carnegie Theatre Trust, so we are seeking a diverse range of applications with a variety of experiences: previous experience as a Trustee is not necessary.  We particularly welcome interest from people with expertise in the areas of: Finance; Legal; Education; Arts, Human Resources; Arts engagement.

The Carnegie Theatre & Arts Centre is one of West Cumbria’s much-loved historic buildings and premier theatre and community cultural hub.

The Carnegie Theatre Trust manages three key spaces: the 306-seat auditorium, a café and bar and our arts and learning centre from which we currently run a flourishing range of participatory events.

Despite the challenges created by COVID-19 our ambition is to grow and develop our arts and cultural offer beyond the popular theatre programme, developing exciting partnerships which help us further flourish by expanding our audiences, developing arts creation spaces, and evolving our learning centre.

Involving local people and enabling them to be engaged with our creative activities lies at the heart of what we do. It is therefore time to bring our Board back to full strength and broaden the range of knowledge and perspectives as we look forwards and ambitiously plan for the next 5 years. The current Board is made up of 6 Trustee Directors.
