Annual General Meeting 2018

Wednesday 19 September 2018 at 7.30pm
Burns Street Studios, 9 Burns Street, Northampton NN1 3QF

Dear Members,

The AGM for 2017/18 is as above and covers the season from
Antony and Cleopatra (2017) to The Bacchae (2018) inclusive and we hope to see you there.

The business of the meeting is to elect a committee for 2018/19 and to have the annual accounts presented by Treasurer, Craig Macpherson, that are due for ratification by CVS auditors. Reports are also presented by officers for the last year’s activities.

According to our constitution all officers are elected annually.

Should you be interested in being nominated, you need to the contact
Honorary Secretary, Denise Swann, to acquire hard copies of nomination forms, or download below (PDF file).


Should you require a ‘job description' of any of the officers' posts, click here.

Nominations may be made by post, or by email (if by email the nominated person must ensure that the two referees have previously agreed to the nomination).

All nominations should be with the Honorary Secretary by 22 August 2018, so that if any officers are double nominated, a postal vote can take place prior to the AGM, again according to our constitution.

Posted nomination/s should go to:
Honorary Secretary, Masque Theatre, 9 Burns Street Studios, NN1 3QF
Or email to:

The officers posts are:

  • Chair
  • Honorary Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Productions Co-ordinator
  • Publicity Officer
  • Social Secretary
  • Ordinary Member.

Committee members co-opted for 2017/18 were for:

  • Membership Secretary
  • Masque News
  • Publicity
  • Masque Youth Theatre Director

In addition Martin Borley-Cox continued the management of the Masque Theatre website and Greta Hendy has continued as the Masque Archivist.

This year, as before, there has been some ‘job shares' and other support work for Masque carried on by committee members outside the ‘job description' remit but the purpose of the AGM is to specifically nominate officers as above.

Co-opted members are invited once the committee has been elected for any given year.

Just for information, I made it clear at the 2016/17 AGM that I wished to stand down as chair given I’ve been in post in that position for the last 10 years (having served in many guises on committee for the last 23 years).

I can also inform you that Denise Swann will also not be available for re-election and that Tony Janney will not be continuing as editor of Masque News as a co-opted member. I would like to thank them both here for their work and support for Masque as wells at the AGM.

Rob Kendall
Chair Masque Theatre, 2017/18
