Warwick Folk Festival is planning for 2021. We need a few more board members to help us deliver the best festival yet in our lovely new grounds next to Warwick Castle.
As a board member, you will be able to use valuable skills and experience to have a direct influence over the work of the Festival Management Team, shaping our strategy and providing support to the FMT.
We need to manage the financial challenges posed by us not being able to hold the festival in 2020 and to plan for a new set of social norms.
We would like to recruit three board members to cover the core skills:
We wish to recruit people from a variety of backgrounds, with various life experiences to expand and reinforce the skills of the existing board members, specifically in the following areas:
Experience in the following would also be useful:
The type of people we are looking for:
2019 was the 40th Warwick Folk Festival and after our enforced break in 2020, 2021 sees an exciting change from a long standing school based venue to a new greenfield site bringing many opportunities and challenges.
In the next year we will also be looking to recruit a new Artistic Manager as well as a Festival Operations Manager as our founding Festival Director retires.
Two of our board members retired this year leaving us with a need for a renewed board to support future opportunities and challenges.
The festival is delivered by a Festival Management Team (FMT) overseen by a board of legally designated Directors of Warwick Folk Festival as a Company Limited by Guarantee.
We have a fabulous team of volunteers - not all folk music fans.
The board has the opportunity to shape the future of the festival.
