Published on Thursday 21 October, 2010

Last night Northern Ballet celebrated the phenomenal work of Cllr Bernard Atha, who has been the Company’s Chair for many years.

Cllr Atha has worked tirelessly to support Northern Ballet, first getting involved on the Board when we were based in Halifax. He has been a key figure in securing our new home in the centre of Leeds. He now takes on the title of Northern Ballet Honorary President. David Forbes has taken on the role of Chair.

This was the first formal event we’ve held in our Board Room, catering for 22 people. Guests were able to watch the sun setting over the city from the outdoor terrace on the fifth floor. The Board Room is available for events hire, as are other studios, meeting and performance spaces and breakout rooms throughout the building. See here for full details of our venue hires.
