Job Description (PDF) Application Form (DOC)

Taunton Theatre Association operating The Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre, Taunton

Growing fast, we seek trustees with a legal background or fundraising expertise to complement our Boardroom skills.

Be part of our success

Over the last 3 years we have rapidly established a bright, new offer for performing and visual arts.   Led by Vanessa Lefrancois, an innovative and energetic young team of professionals are building a reputation for high quality programming of music, dance, drama, comedy, family shows and more. Cinema, introduced with crowd-funding support, offers live transmissions and quality films.  Engagement activities and a changing programme of exhibitions keeps everyone involved.

Volunteers, critical to our success, work in all areas of the operation.

We have a sound base, thanks to early support from The Mackintosh Foundation, grants from Taunton Deane Borough Council, Arts Council England and other regional trusts and foundations together with support from businesses.

We are implementing a strategic plan to grow, extend our reach and become recognised as an outstanding artistic venue and creative hub for arts in the West and in our community.  Working with TDBC, there are plans to redevelop the Brewhouse substantially, creating a larger auditorium and other spaces.

Help drive us forward

It’s an exciting time to join; you can make a difference.  As well as having legal or fundraising skills, we look for a demonstrable passion for the arts and those with diverse backgrounds are very welcome.

We hold evening meetings in Taunton and, with associated projects/committees, think about a time commitment of 6-8 meetings a year.
