look forward with great anticipation to this extremely exciting and
challenging new role.
are clear parallels between Queen's and Warwick in the active role
each university plays in the promotion of the arts.
am particularly happy to be travelling across the water at this
remarkable time in Northern Ireland's history.
is a moment and a country which has fully embraced the role of
culture in its everyday life and I hope to play my part alongside
politicians, educators, planners and colleagues in the arts in
making Belfast and Northern Ireland a marvellous place to live and a
"must visit" destination.
have had a wonderful three years at Warwick Arts Centre and will
miss my family here and the many friends made in the West Midlands.
leave behind an excellent team, a beautiful building and audiences
who have demanded, and enjoyed, the best programme we can offer.
I hope that I will see some familiar faces this Autumn in Belfast -
after all it is only fifty minutes from Birmingham Airport!"
