New Mysteries Chair announced

I’m delighted that Peter has become the new Chair of Lichfield Mysteries. Here is our press release:

Peter Chell

A man who
has had a lifelong interest in the arts has become the new chairman of
Lichfield Mysteries.
Peter
Chell has been part of the Mysteries over the last few cycles and is looking
forward to heading the Council of Management.
The
56-year-old has a degree in Drama and Theatre and his major passion is watching
and teaching Shakespeare in performance.
He said:
“I am very committed to community arts and feel honoured and excited by the
prospect of chairing the Lichfield Mysteries.
 “Over the next few months I will be working
with the committee to prepare the 2014 programme and the events leading up to
the 2015 Mysteries.”
During
the last eighteen years Peter, along with his partner, has run a thriving
amateur theatre company, producing two plays a year and involving themselves in
a range of community-based events.
Peter has
spent much of his professional career working in Young People’s Health as a
Public Health and Health Promotion Specialist. Currently he is managing a
Lifestyle Service in Stoke on Trent.
Retiring
chair Ros Hallifax, who led the committee for four years, said she was
delighted that Peter had been appointed.
“His
experience in and enthusiasm for community arts make him the ideal person for
the job and I wish him every success.”
