Peter Ross launches Season 2017 at the Capitol on Wednesday night.

A strong arts scene is recognised as one of the elements that attracts and keeps people in regional centres, and a key person in arts leadership in our region is Peter Ross. He brings experience, passion and a creative outlook to the role – if you’ll pardon the pun. A relative newcomer to the city, in his roughly 10 years here he has ‘changed the direction of theatre in Tamworth’, according to one nominator, raising the bar on locally produced shows; bringing outstanding artists to perform in our larger venues such as TRECC, the Capitol Theatre and the town hall; increasing audiences; touring shows to smaller venues in the council area; and even securing an international company to premiere its national and global touring show, The Unbelievables, right here in Tamworth. We sat down with Peter just over a year ago to learn more about his work and what it takes for the show to go on.
