Simon Wales to take over at Bristol Beacon

Louise Mitchell’s successor as CEO of Bristol Beacon is to be Simon Wales, currently head of the Stowe House Preservation Trust.

Mitchell announced she would stand down after the reopening of the venue - formally the Colston Hall - last November following a £132m remake. He will take over in August.

A Clore Leadership fellow, before taking on the mission to preserve the historical buildings of Stowe School and improve public access with a £25m programme, Wales worked at the Windmill Hill Archive, the London Symphony Orchestra and B:Music in Birmingham.
