Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery in London seeks Trustee with legal & governance expertise
Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust is seeking new Trustees to join its Board at this exciting moment in its development since Pitzhanger re-opened to the public in March 2019, following a major renovation project, and then re-opened again in May 2021 after the COVID lockdown. Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade I listed country house of influential British architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London. The award-winning £12m NLHF & ACE-supported renovation project restored the Manor to Soane’s original designs and upgraded the adjacent Gallery – a project that was selected as one of the best restorations of the decade by Country Life, 2019.
Having successfully taken Pitzhanger to opening and through the challenges of COVID the Trust is now seeking new Trustees to guide Pitzhanger through the next period of its development, as it rebuilds post pandemic, broadens its reach to new audiences, expands its education and outreach activities, continues the momentum of its exhibition programme, develops new sources of fundraising and strengthens its operational resilience. The Trust is looking for energetic Trustees with broad experience who are passionate about the arts and heritage, and the benefits both can bring to the community; are keen to get involved in a project where their advice can have real impact; and who are sensitive to the challenges of developing dynamic business opportunities in a cultural context. We are also looking for these three specific areas of skills and experience: –
· Retail (catering, shop, events and private hire, etc)
· Legal and governance
