Our Team

Not many people know that we're a charity with most of our income raised through tickets and other commercial sales.

We reinvest back into developing our people and supporting local talent, young people and schools. Compared to bigger towns and cities, subsidy for the arts is low here and we're committed to ensuring our long-term sustainability & growth.

We are truly grateful to the partnership working of all our funders and are supported by Arts Council England, Cornwall Council, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, HM Treasury, the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, the European Regional Development Fund and an army of passionate and committed supporters both from within our community and across the UK.

Our Royal Patron is HRH Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex and our Honorary President is Sir Tim Rice and we are grateful to be supported by a talented board of trustees who steer us on our forward thinking journey.
