Following a 100% cut to our core funding as of April 2024, National Theatre Wales will continue to exist but with a different structure and programme of work.

We offer our sincere thanks to Lorne Campbell, our Artistic Director and CEO, who leaves us in March and we welcome Leonora Thomson, who joins as Interim CEO. Leo has a wealth of arts leadership experience and will see the organisation through this evolutionary period.

The difficult changes we’ve had to make for our future are significant and impactful for us all at National Theatre Wales. We feel deeply for cherished and talented colleagues we are having to say goodbye to. However, as we work towards a new vision and future, we are encouraged by how many peers, partners and communities are willing to help shape and imagine what NTW could become, for Wales.

Within change, there is possibility. We look forward to making brilliant theatre with and for the people of Wales and to continuing to advocate for more support for the arts.

From the Trustees of National Theatre Wales
