Craig Titley announced as new South Hill Park Chief Executive

May 16, 2019

South Hill Park is delighted to announce the appointment of Craig Titley as its new Chief Executive. Craig joined the Arts Centre as Executive Director in May 2017 to strengthen the executive team during a period of significant funding cuts and organisational change. Having spent over 25 years in arts management including six years as a South Hill Park trustee, Craig has an intrinsic understanding of the value of the arts and in particular the role the Arts Centre plays in Bracknell Forest.

Craig takes on his new role at an exciting time for the Bracknell based venue, building on its past successes to ensure South Hill Park is a leading and sustainable arts centre in the south east. Over recent years, South Hill Park has enjoyed record breaking and award-winning in-house productions, an increase in audiences/participants for both the visual and performing arts; in particular dance and drama and an overall uplift in the annual footfall. Working alongside a dedicated Board of Trustees and staff, Craig will help shape this unique venue’s future.

Jessica Jhundoo-Evans, Chair of the Board of Trustees said of the appointment…

‘As a Board, we are ambitious for South Hill Park’s future and committed to its growth as a sustainable and reputable organisation. We are lucky to have such a special venue in Bracknell and we are really excited to work alongside Craig in his new role, with a dedicated, hardworking team of staff and volunteers. Craig brings a wealth of relevant experience and shares our passion to continue building an inspiring future for South Hill Park. A future where together we continue to provide fantastic experiences and opportunities for residents of Bracknell Forest and beyond and reposition this wonderful venue on the arts map.’

Craig began his career in the arts at the Theatre Royal in Windsor before joining the team that took Watford Pala ce Theatre through a multi-million pound refurbishment. In 2006 he became Director of Marketing for Rambert, the UK’s largest and oldest touring contemporary dance company before becoming Chief Executive at Future Talent, a London based music charity for talented young musicians, founded by The Duchess of Kent. Over three years, Craig stabilised the charity’s finances, substantially developed its fundraising capacity and increased the number of musicians supported by over 700%.

Craig commented…

‘As a Bracknell resident, I appreciate the passion and love our community has for South Hill Park. In its 46 year history it has nurtured and developed talented artists of all ages, locally and nationally, professional and amateur, provided thousands of people with new skills and training and a range of unrivalled performances and events. I am thrilled to be part of such a dynamic organisation and look forward to working with my colleagues on the next chapter in the life of this remarkable arts centre.’
