The Witham arts centre announces the appointment of a new director to take Barnard Castle’s arts centre to the next stage.

The Witham arts centre is delighted to announce the appointment of our new Director, Gaye Kirby who will start at the Barnard Castle arts centre in early September.

Gaye joins The Witham with almost twenty years’ experience including time with The Halle Orchestra where she managed the transition of the fundraising strategy from crisis appeal to a long-term development programme for fund raising.  Gaye is currently the Head of Development Strategy at Durham Cathedral where she leads a team which has developed and overseen the cathedral’s strategic plan for renovation.   Gaye brings a wealth of general management, fundraising and great creativity to The Witham.

As Shelagh Avery, The Witham's Interim Director, comments: 'I am so pleased that Gaye is joining The Witham to help it continue to thrive. It’s an exciting time here at Barnard Castle’s arts centre with the staff team and our wonderful volunteers all working hard to ensure that our visitors continue to enjoy the fantastic events, delicious food and warm welcome that you deserve. We look forward to welcoming Gaye to The Witham community as we move to another exciting chapter.'

Shelagh has been working with The Witham team to manage the transition between the previous Director, Katy Taylor and Gaye Kirby joining the team.
