Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) is a major cultural hub for the North East of Scotland, inspiring, exploring and engaging through live performance and creative projects in our three distinctive city centre venues - His Majesty’s Theatre, the Music Hall and The Lemon Tree.
Aberdeen Performing Arts, a not-for-profit company with charitable status, manages and operates His Majesty's Theatre, the Music Hall and The Lemon Tree, as well as Aberdeen Box Office and the 1906 Restaurant. One of the largest and most successful arts organisations in Scotland, we had a turnover of over £10m in 2012-13 and employ 260 full and part time staff.
We attract the best of the West End shows to the His Majesty's Theatre, host Scotland’s major orchestras and concerts by major artists in the Music Hall and have made The Lemon Tree a go-to venue for small scale drama, music, comedy and dance. We also run an extensive creative learning programme, particularly for young people, and produce and tour our own in-house productions. We were the first arts organisation in the UK to win the Customer Service Excellence accreditation for the quality of our customer service. We recently agreed an ambitious five-year Business Plan and are about to embark on a major redevelopment of the Music Hall, towards which we have raised £3.75m including an award of £1.5m by Creative Scotland.
We are seeking to renew our Board by appointing four new Directors to serve for an initial period of four years from November 2014. They will be people with a strong interest or experience in the performing arts who can contribute to the work of the Board from their expertise in business, the arts or the professions, proactive people who will help set the company’s strategic direction and promote our work amongst the local community. Board members are unpaid but expenses for attending meetings may be reimbursed.
