Broadway Arts Festival has created the role of Ambassador as part of its development from being a local arts festival to becoming a regionally and nationally recognised Festival with an ambitious outreach programme to schools and students.

Ambassadors are figures of national prominence who work with us to further develop:
• an enhanced range of performers and speakers
• the size and reach of our Benefactors and sponsors
• a much broader audience demographic
• the name and profile of Broadway Arts Festival
Ambassadors have complementary skills sets and experience and each bring an invaluable level of knowledge and understanding of the arts to our organisation.
The first two festival Ambassadors have today been announced as:
  • Margot James: Former Minister for Digital and the Creative Industries and Executive Chair of WMG at the University of Warwick
  • Richard Ormond: Great-nephew of artist John Singer Sargent and former Director of the National Maritime Museum in London

Mark Chambers, Chair of the board of Trustees commented:

“We are delighted to have appointed Margot and Richard as our first two ambassadors. They are perfectly positioned to help us expand our artistic network and influence a wider audience of supporters.”
