Become a Trustee

Could you support us as a Trustee? Our Trustees are responsible for the governance, strategy and effective management of the Holst Birthplace Trust, which is a registered charity. The Trust is also a limited company and the Trustees are its Directors. It owns the Museum building and is the employer of the Museum’s staff.

Our current Trustees have a range of backgrounds and experience. Some have specialist skills and experience in areas such as music or conservation, while others have a more general background in areas such as project management or business improvement. You can meet the team here.

We always welcome enquiries from people who are interested in joining us. We’re particularly interested in hearing from people with experience of fundraising and social media, but anyone who is prepared to give their time and skills to support the effective governance of the Museum is very welcome.
