THE MALTINGS IS RECRUITING FOR NEW BOARD MEMBERS

Thu 19 May After 10 very successful years as Chairman, Berwick-based retired business man Maurice Ward has decided to stand down from the Board of The Maltings Trust – with all our good wishes and gratitude for his excellent work on our behalf.

During his tenure, The Maltings has consolidated its place at the heart of Berwick life, created the Henry Travers Studio, converted to a fully digital cinema programme, secured Arts Council England ‘national portfolio organisation’ revenue funding twice in 2012 and 2015, delivered a full refit and upgrade of our sound and lighting equipment, maintained a close working relationship with Northumberland County Council (now Active Northumberland) including beginning major works on the fabric of the building as the start of a long term maintenance schedule, and seen a steady rise in ticket sales and revenues.

He was also an active champion of The Maltings 25th birthday celebrations throughout 2015, including a sell-out birthday concert in April 2015, an award-winning off-site Gilbert and Sullivan extravaganza in June 2015 (The Mikado at the former Caesar’s Palace nigthclub and bingo hall), a critically acclaimed production of die Walküre as the finale to our Berwick Festival Opera 2015 season, The Maltings’ best selling Panto ever  with Little Red Riding Hood  (all produced in house by locally-based professionals), and a memorable visit by HRH the Earl of Wessex on 1 May 2015.
 
The Maltings’ staff and Board of Trustees are now planning ahead with confidence, and are looking to recruit a new Chair over the Summer of 2016. The Maltings is a not-for-profit business that puts its audience at the centre of everything it does. It is a registered charity which aims to  be one of the UK’s leading regional centres for live performances, visual arts and film, and to be widely recognised as a major force in commissioning and producing medium scale work by attracting world class artists to create, showcase and then tour The Maltings productions and exhibitions across the UK and beyond.
 
For every £1 The Maltings receives in public funding from Northumberland County Council  and Arts Council England, we aim to earn another £3 through ticket sales and other trading across a packed diary of live events, films and visual arts, as well as wider fundraising. The committed staff team and active volunteers all play a crucial role in maintaining the wide-ranging and high quality programme that The Maltings prides itself on.

The Maltings Trust’s legal structure as a charitable trust means that the day-to-day running of the company is accountable to a Board of volunteer Trustees, led by a Chair.  The current Board of 7 is made up one women and six men with a range of professional skills - legal, accounting, education, management and PR.  The Maltings is seeking to recruit a number of new Board members - as well as expanding its network of local contacts to work on specific time-limited projects - across a broad age range, with relevant skills in business development, retail, leisure and tourism.  If you'd like to express your interest in getting involved, please contact The Maltings at ceo@maltingsberwick.co.uk.
