An exciting opportunity has arisen as the Burnley Empire Trust Board of Trustees are looking to recruit a number of new Trustees to join the Board to actively support the overall effective running of the charity, both organisational and financial.

Founded in 2019, Burnley Empire Trust is a Preservation, Arts & Culture charity based in East Lancashire promoting the heritage and reuse of the iconic Burnley Empire Theatre within the local and wider community by developing an innovative preservation project for an exciting future for East Lancashire’s last venue of its kind.

Burnley Empire is not just a theatre; it's a new destination for the people of Burnley and Lancashire. It will be a new centre of activity for local cultural and creative communities as well as a space for learning, socialising and collaboration for everyone. This is not just about restoring beautiful architecture; this is about building a new space that through its work will support local businesses and people and bring prosperity to Burnley, both in economic and social terms.

The Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of Burnley Empire Trust, developing the organisations aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines ensuring Burnley Empire Trust’s core purpose is carried out. New Trustees will help promote the preservation of the Burnley Empire Theatre and the aims of the charity through involvement at special meetings and events as well as attendance at Board or sub-committee meetings.
