Stretford Children's Theatre is a registered charity (no. 1175334). We are registered with The Charity Commission of England and Wales and are governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees. Our Board is made up of local people with the skills, experience, enthusiasm and time to make our local group a success. We are small but very significant locally and have big ambitions.
We have a Chair (currently Michelle Calame-Bell) and Treasurer (Kirsty Thomas). Our Trustees bring experience in theatre (engagement, technical, producing, management), project management, finance, law, academia and community arts.
We have no employees, but engage a freelance Sessional Manager to coordinate the sessions and manage our membership; plus our freelance Session Facilitators who deliver our sessions with members. From time to time, we engage other specialists to support our ambitions.
We also work with a large number of volunteers each year, mostly local people who support the delivery of sessions alongside the Facilitators, or those who help us 'front of house' with health and safety of the sessions to ensure we maintain relevant Covid-secure measures (one-way systems, social distancing, hand sanitising, cleaning of equipment/spaces etc)
