Lucy Askew Broadway

“There are not many opportunities that would tempt me away from the exciting projects on Creation Theatre’s horizon, but joining Broadway is an opportunity of a lifetime. It is an absolute honour to be joining such a vibrant part of Nottingham’s cultural landscape and such a high calibre team.”

“Broadway’s board is hugely grateful to Steve for his dedicated leadership over so many years, during which he has assembled a great senior management team and has overseen the development of Broadway - both as a place and as a nationally and internationally significant hub for film and creativity. His retirement is without doubt a big moment for Broadway, and I am excited that we have been able to attract a candidate of Lucy’s calibre to take up the reins and drive Broadway forward. I know that she is keen to broaden Broadway’s offering whilst maintaining the unique spirit of the place, and I very much look forward to working with her.”

“Whilst there are numerous challenges and opportunities ahead, without doubt Steve Mapp’s incredible legacy has put in place the strongest foundations an incoming CEO could possibly wish to build on.”
