Could you be the new chair of the organisation?

New organisation the Peterborough Cultural Alliance is seeking its first ever chairperson.

The organisation has been set up with the aim of putting Peterborough firmly back on the cultural map.

A spokesperson for the organisation said; “As Chair of the body tasked to achieve this, you will play a key part in making and driving decisions that seed, grow and share Peterborough’s talent and heritage resources. You’ll need time and energy, be brimming with ideas and have a bulging contacts book. You’ll demonstrate you know how to run a senior, executive team, bring people together to make artistic and cultural magic – and how to get audiences excited, too.
