The Dukes, Lancaster is seeking new independent directors to help plan the next phase of its development.

The Dukes is a producing theatre, independent cinema and creativity centre and an essential part of Lancashire and Lancaster life.  Now, after six years of audience growth and increased creative output, the theatre needs new independent directors to join its board. 

Two vacancies have arisen which need to be filled and a third position will become vacant in May 2015.

As with the majority of publicly supported arts organisations, The Dukes is managed by a voluntary, unpaid board of directors. 

The company is looking for candidates with a broad background who are willing to offer their skills to enable The Dukes to achieve its ambitious goals.  It is particularly keen to recruit people who have experience of fundraising and in capital development.

• To request an application pack, contact Jacqui Wilson, theatre secretary, on 01524 598506; email or complete an information request form at the Box Office. The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 3rd December 2014.
