We are honoured with our new Patrons!

This week, we can announce we have three new Honorary Patrons who have joined in their support for the Arts Centre. The three new members are Tony Hall Baron Hall of Birkenhead, his wife, Cynthia, Lady Hall and Philip Sutton RA.

Tony Hall is currently the Director General of the BBC and has previously worked as the Chief Executive of the Royal Opera House. . Cynthia Hall has had a successful career in education and is now a trustee of the Globe Theatre in London. Together they can provide and wealth of advice and support which will be invaluable.

Philip Sutton RA has been displayed at The Royal Academy, The Tate, The Globe, The Welsh Assembly, Kensington Palace, and Number Ten Downing Street. In 1988 he was asked to become a Royal Academician.

Curtis Fulcher, Director of Bridport Arts Centre, said: “This is very exciting news and a great plus for the Arts Centre to get such high profile honorary patrons. The role of the honorary patron is to support the arts centre through increasing its profile, fundraising or assisting with advice on development”.

Tony Hall said: “We’re both delighted to help this gem in the middle of Bridport. Their plans and programmes are rightly ambitious – and exciting. It’s a privilege to be involved.”
