It’s all change at the Tower Theatre as a new management team is appointed to replace longterm Theatre Manager Peter Heselden, who sadly passed away just before Christmas, and Sarah Smith who has left us.

John Pritchard, known to many through his Dame performances in our pantomimes, is the new Theatre Manager.  Reana Herchenhan is the Events Coordinator, a new post that will hopefully result in more exciting shows and events at the theatre and in the foyer.  Finally, Alice Hawkins is the new Admin Officer and brings enthusiasm but also, as Peter Heselden’s daughter, a welcome connection to the past.

The team started work this week, and we expect them to have their feet fully under the table by the end of April.
