In September 2012, straight after working on London 2012, I begain working as a development manager for The Atrium, Norfolk’s newest arts centre and creative hub. At Christmas time that year we presented my own adaptation of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first professional show produced in the town of North Walsham for many years. It was very well received and helped establish the venue as a hub for art and cultural activity. In early 2013, we set up The Atrium as a limited company and registered charity, leasing the venue from Norfolk County Council. As Director and Chief Exec, I produced in-house shows from variety, plays and Christmas treats, welcoming touring theatre and engaging the local community with a cinema and diverse workshop programme.
We became a registered charity in June 2013 and rebranded in August 2014 as Arts North Norfolk – moving our operation from The Atrium to a town centre box office and hub. We still use The Atrium for our larger and regular events.
