Job Description

Working with the wider Arts Development team, you will use your enthusiasm and knowledge to reveal the history of our building in a tangible and exciting programme of activity.
 
We seek an individual who shares our passion, grit and gusto to discover and share the complex history of our unique building and deliver a new cultural experience within the building - which will not only give opportunity and access to the best performing arts but will also be a vital community asset.

Company Description

Cornwall’s theatre
Hall For Cornwall is Cornwall’s largest commercial theatre, an independent presenting house with its own production company welcoming over 200,000 people a year. We provide cultural education, talent development and workspaces for the creative industries.  The building which houses our theatre has been part of the Cornish landscape for over 170 years: a trusted edifice and beating heart at the centre of Truro with a long-standing history of local civic pride.
 
Exciting times
On 2 June 2018, we closed for an ambitious and much-needed two-year £20million redevelopment of our theatre, seeking to safeguard the future heritage of the building and transform it into a dynamic and high-quality venue that will give the people of Cornwall access to the best performing arts to rival any city in the country. Our new home will be a vital community asset, firmly placing us at the heart of Truro’s cultural and economic offering and securing our long-term future.  Upon the foundations of the existing site, we will unveil the history and heritage of our Grade II* listed building and create a new theatre within. The project encompasses a complete refurbishment of the auditorium into three tiers increasing in capacity by 300 seats; a creative business hub to support growth of Cornwall’s cultural industries; a distinct and attractive cafe/bar at each end of the building; and a heritage project that will revitalise and make accessible the building’s vibrant long history.
