The Donmar Warehouse, led by Michael Longhurst, Artistic Director and Henny Finch, Executive Director, is a 251-seat subsidised theatre located in the heart of Covent Garden in London’s West End.
Since 1992 the Donmar has built a reputation for artistic excellence as one of the UK’s leading producing theatres.
From our iconic warehouse space in the heart of London’s West End, we create world-class theatre with international impact. Our intimate auditorium offers audiences – 95,000 annually – a unique shared experience, and an unparalleled connection with performers.
We believe that representation matters; diversity of identity, of perspective, of lived experience enriches our work and our lives.
We develop new artists and future audiences through our renowned training programmes and our Discover activity in schools and communities.
We share the theatre we make widely through transfers, tours and on screen.
A registered charity, with a turnover of around £7m/year, the Donmar is funded by a combination of Arts Council England investment (7%), box office (35%) fundraising from individuals, Trusts and Foundations and corporate sponsorships (53%), and other income (5%).
The Donmar is unique in delivering such a high portion of annual income via fundraising and one of the key roles of all Trustees is to proactively support the Executive in achieving this.
While it is not necessary to have Trustee experience, we are interested in hearing from a range of applicants with interest and primary expertise across one or more of the following areas:
• Cultural venue management
• Performing arts leadership
• Education, working with young people and communities
• Equality, diversity, access advocacy/leadership
• Law, especially entertainment law
Specifically, we are looking to appoint a new Chair for our Ethics & Reputation Committee.
The Donmar is an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to diversity and seek to actively encourage applications from those with less visibility in the arts.
Closing date for applications: Friday 29 November 2019 at noon
