The Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis is a 125 year old institution with a long history as a working arts venue providing a wide and diverse range of productions and events.

Our board has a rolling retirement cycle, as such we from time to time need new Trustees to join our management board, and we always welcome applications.

We’re particularly looking for trustees with a background of fundraising in the arts, awarding arts funding, working at theatres, arts centres and other venues, and experience of setting up a youth theatre

We’d welcome applications from trustees that contribute to our diversity.

What would you gain from being a Trustee?

  • A really fulfilling role in working to develop the Marine’s exciting location to its full potential while retaining its position at the heart of the vibrant community of Lyme Regis
  • An opportunity to work with like-minded people to look at ‘outside the box ideas’ whilst ensuring the theatre builds financial strength.
  • The satisfaction of being part of the renaissance of a much loved institution.

What would you need to provide as a Trustee?

  • A positive attitude and a real desire to make a difference
  • A willingness to contribute new ideas and to use your skill sets to help the Marine achieve its goals
  • Attendance at our quarterly management board meetings

What’s your next step?

I look forward to hearing from you.
