We are absolutely thrilled to be joined at our next meeting by the recently appointed Artistic Director of Northern Stage, Natalie Ibu.

The meeting will take place on Thursday 13th May, from 1pm - 3pm.

It's sure to be a fascinating meeting, as you'll get to hear about Natalie's journey to this point, her hopes and plans for Northern Stage, and her take on the Union and the industry's response to the pandemic.

We anticipate that there will be lots of questions and topics that the branch would like to discuss with Natalie, so in order to make best use of her time with us, we ask that you send in your questions in advance to:
Once we have covered these, then we will open the floor to any further questions.
