Become a Trustee


We are seeking new trustees to join the board in early 2021 to broaden and refresh our skills and work to secure the future of our much-loved venue as the covid pandemic recedes. We are seeking people with a passion for the arts, particuarly cinema, together with strong professional skills, including a qualified lawyer and those who have had experience with not-for-profit arts venues and fund-raising in the arts will be welcomed. Some knowledge of the Phoenix locality in north London will be helpful. We aim for a diverse membership of the board and welcome people from all backgrounds. Please email trustees@phoenixcinema.co.uk for more details.


The Phoenix Cinema Trust is the charity that runs the Phoenix. The Phoenix is one of the oldest cinemas in the UK and has been run by a charitable trust since the 1980s. Its trustees are board members and directors of the cinema and, in line with Charity Commission guidance, we are responsible for its fortunes at this dynamic time for independent cinema, working closely with the cinema's management. Positions are part-time, with most meetings taking place on weekday evenings.


Closing date: 6 February
