Theatres Trust’s new director
Jon Morgan, currently director of the Federation of Scottish Theatre, is to be the next director of the Theatres Trust, the national advisory body for theatres that is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
He takes over from interim director Rebecca Morland who stepped in when Mhora Samuel left earlier in the year, and she reverts to her role as theatres advisor with the trust. Morland will start in January.
“Theatres Trust supports and campaigns on behalf of communities and theatre professionals to preserve and build the very best theatre spaces, serving the needs of artists and ensuring communities across the UK can enjoy the excitement of live theatre” Morgan said. “I am delighted to be joining the expert team at Theatres Trust and look forward to working with them and our partners to continue this vital work.”
