Formerly Associate Director and later Director of Theatre and Artistic Development at The Place, Eddie Nixon will take over as Artistic Director from Richard Alston.

In 2019 and 2020, The Place will celebrate its 50th anniversary. Nixon's new role will "bring a holistic approach to artistic commissions, projects and collaborations across the breadth of the organisation".

Nixon said, “my vision as an artistic leader is to empower creativity in the way we teach, train, support, nurture and cultivate the artists of the future. As one entity, we will stimulate a powerful and creative interchange amongst our classrooms, artists and the communities we serve.

"I will be working with a brilliant team of people and my job is to galvanise the energy that is in and around the organisation and use that strength to achieve really great things.”
