Julia Twomlow, who joined the Rothesay Pavilion Charity nearly two and a half years ago, will be leaving her post of Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Rothesay Pavilion in June, to take up the position of Director of the Telegraph Museum in Porthcurno in Cornwall.
Julia said ‘As a Cornish native, I had always intended to return home at some point, and the Telegraph Museum is a marvellous opportunity. I will be very sorry to leave the Pavilion project, and Bute as a whole. I am glad that as I depart, the Pavilion redevelopment is finally taking place after many delays, and I look forward to coming back for the reopening later in 2019.’
The chair of the charity, Dr Nick Merriman, said ‘The board is hugely grateful to Julia for all the excellent work she has done to ensure that the redevelopment of the Pavilion takes place and that the charity is ready to take over its management in autumn next year. We wish her all the best for her return to Cornwall, before which she is working on a set of priority tasks. I am confident that her departure will not unduly affect the Rothesay Pavilion Charity’s input to the project.’
The Pavilion charity’s board will be embarking on a recruitment campaign to appoint Julia’s successor very shortly.
