an you help us widen our audience for New Town Concerts?

Would you be interested in joining the board?

Or do you know someone who would like to help us?


New Town Concerts Society is a registered charity administered by a board of directors. We are looking to recruit one or two new directors to support the continuing success of this series of concerts which began in 1964. Our board members contribute in a variety of ways. Together we select the artistic programmes, liaise with the artists and the Queen’s Hall, arrange the promotion of the concerts and oversee the finances and governance of the charity. We would particularly welcome new board members with expertise in marketing and social media – we need to grow our audience and would love to introduce new concert goers to the pleasure we all experience from the high quality of music making we present. The time commitment involved is not onerous. If you, or someone you know, can help us achieve our goals but lack board experience, we will be happy to provide appropriate support.

For an informal conversation about this opportunity please contact our chair Graham Burnside on or speak to any of the current directors.


Thank you! Graham Burnside, Rose Ellison, Douglas Home, James McNeill, Nicky Pritchett-Brown Directors, New Town Concerts Society
