Jen Garrick appointed as Director and Joint CEO of Rosehill

Jen Garrick has been appointed as Executive Director and Joint CEO of Rosehill, marking the first shared leadership model in the organisation’s 65-year history.

Previously Marketing & Communications Director of The Art House in Wakefield, following a varied career across the public, private, and third sectors, Jen brings a wealth of both creative and commercial experience to the organisation.

A specialist in strategic, values-led organisational development, Jen will lead on financial resilience and entrepreneurial activity, with a focus on maximising the potential of Rosehill’s building and facilities, including its historic Grade II listed theatre.

Jen said:

“It’s an honour to join Rosehill as Executive Director & Joint CEO. The organisation has been through a transformational period of research and development over the last two years, and I’m thrilled to be a part of Rosehill’s next chapter. I am particularly excited to be working closely with Creative Director, and my fellow CEO, Daniel Whitehouse, as we continue to develop meaningful and sustainable ways to serve our communities.”

The Chair of Trustees John Clarke said:

“The trustees are very much looking forward to working with Jen and Dan as they take Rosehill forward in delivering quality arts experiences and providing arts-based community projects with and for the people of West Cumbria.”

An intimate, cosy and comfortable theatre. Friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant bar area.
Rosehill consistently provides fantastic shows. We are fortunate to attract such talented performers to visit our theatre.

Rosehill is a hidden gem. The theatre is special and makes you feel as if you are going some where special.

Superb venue, clean, and the theatre is beautiful. Saw a film for the first time last night, sound and picture were awesome. Highly recommended.
