On the first bank holiday in May 2014 the delightful Deverills valley in south west Wiltshire will come alive with wonderful drama, music and dance. The four days will be a highly accessible and inclusive experience hosting professional quality performing art delivered in a friendly ‘English village’ manner but to the highest standards of efficiency and presentation.
Over 2-5 May, we plan 27 events ranging from a top-quality classical orchestra (Bath Philharmonia), musicians at the peak of their professional careers, touring theatres, astounding dance ensembles, world, folk and jazz music from the country’s premier performers, and lots more. In seven fabulous venues. See our website: www.deverillsfestival.com. All of this will be put on by a wholly volunteer management team and force of dedicated individuals. Because we love it!
We are now looking for a treasurer to coordinate our accounts (£25,000 turnover), develop and implement the ticketing strategy and support the fundraising team. As part of the management team of Director, Marketing, Facilities, Venues, Box Office and Fundraising Managers, you will take a lead role in making this incredibly exciting experience happen!
We don’t need a qualified accountant (but that would be very nice), we don’t want a slavish bookkeeper (however … ). What we do want is someone who loves performing art, is ‘up for it’, flexible, sensible and has an eye for figures, knows how to manipulate simple accounts packages (Excel will be fine) and who can turn their hand to putting an on-line purchase facility through its paces (we have already set it up). Maybe with previous festival experience – but not necessarily. Is that you?
