Pethertorn Arts Trust
The Hall now receives no external revenue funding whatsoever. It costs us 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! Management of the hall is done by an unpaid ‘Board of Trustees’ who meet monthly.
The Trust now has less than one (equivalent) paid post. 30 hours a week are job-shared by three part time staff – Emma, our programme manager; Anne who looks after the administration and Penny who does our PR. Everybody else involved with the running of the hall – taking your tickets, supervising events, serving behind the bar, fund raising etc. are unpaid volunteers.
