Vacancy: Chair of Board of Trustees


Queens Hall

We welcome applications from dynamic individuals who will take on an outward facing advocacy role, provide strong business contacts and have a passion for music and the arts. The Queen’s Hall is one of the key cultural venues in Edinburgh, where it has presented live music for 40 years. Its excellent acoustic and intimacy enhance a programme which includes classical, jazz, folk, rock, pop and contemporary music, and it is a key EIF and Fringe venue. QH plays an important part in the development of Scottish musicians and audiences as a music hub for the city and beyond. Current Chair, Nigel Griffiths, who leads a strong board encompassing a wide range of skills, is stepping down following a successful tenure that established QH on a secure financial, operational and artistic footing. We now seek a Chair to build on this and take forward ambitious new Artistic and Fundraising Strategies with the CEO.

Please email for further information.
