Cast, launched in 2013 is the anchor of Doncaster’s Cultural and Civic Quarter.  In a short time we have significantly contributed to the cultural life of the town, presenting shows on stage, delivering participation and outreach activities for people of all ages and experience, supporting the development of artists, offering outdoor performance and community based projects. 


Cast is a charity.  Our venue exists as an arts centre with community at its heart and we work closely with our civic partners in the town and artistic peer organisations across the country (including the National Theatre, English Touring Theatre and Royal Ballet) to deliver productions and other activities that benefit the communities of Doncaster.


We are now looking to appoint a number of new Trustees to support the Chief Executive and Chair throughout these challenging times and beyond.  The Trustees provide oversight, scrutiny, support and challenge to help the professional team at Cast to ensure its continued success.   Trustees help ensure that Cast operates within the parameters of its strategy and business plan and that it is run in a transparent and equitable manner.


We welcome applications from anyone inspired to give their time to this unique opportunity and we are particularly keen to hear from individuals with skills or experience in the following sectors;


  • Performing Arts
  • Education
  • Frontline service - Tourism, Catering, Hospitality
  • Environmental Impact

These roles are voluntary (though travel expenses may be reimbursed).  There are usually four meetings a year but more information about the time commitment expected of Trustees is in the information pack.


More information about the role, and how to apply is available in our downloadable candidate pack, here.


Closing Date: Friday 13th November 2020
