Petherton Arts Trust

The David Hall hardly receives any external revenue funding. It costs Petherton Arts Trust about £38,000 a year to run the venue (before artists fees). Box office profits alone are not sufficient to run the Hall, so a considerable amount of our activity involves fund raising. We always need more cash!

Board of Trustees

Management of the hall is done by an unpaid ‘Board of Trustees’ who meet bi-monthly, with sub committee meeting in the intervening months.

Paid staff

PAT now has less than one (equivalent) paid post. 30 hours a week by part time staff – Emma Westerman, our programme manager; Kerry Bamford who looks after the finances.


Everybody else involved with the running of the Hall – taking your tickets, supervising events, serving behind the bar, fund raising etc. are unpaid volunteers.
