Carol Butler, our long standing Director, informed us earlier in the year that she would be retiring from her role in early 2022 after 14 years. In that time, Carol has built the TMF into a highly successful organisation with a wonderful breadth of programming and an excellent reputation. Her work to sustain TMF throughout the pandemic has been exceptional and her commitment has been outstanding. We will miss her personal contribution greatly and we are very sorry to see her go.
Carol’s successor will be Roland Deller and he will take over from Carol on 31st January. Roland is a successful and experienced musical administrator and manager. He is also a talented musician in his own right. Most recently, he has been the driving force behind the highly successful New Paths Music Festivals in Beverley.
We are fortunate both in having benefitted so much from Carol’s guidance and in having found Roland to take us forward in the future.
