OUR Artistic Directors are the driving force behind our productions and company

Appointed for 3 years, and a volunteer role, our artistic directors contribute a huge amount to the everyday running of our company, alongside providing the vision and leadership for where we are heading. 

Each Artistic Director (or in the past Artistic Committee Member) since we were first formed have added, changed and grown our company and we are hugely thankful to all of them for everything they have done for us.
