Stephen Crocker visits Norwich

“What an exciting prospect to come into a theatre that is so loved by people in Norwich and Norfolk, that is thriving, has a phenomenal programme already in place – and a real privilege to build on the legacy of a theatre legend like Peter Wilson.”

We’ve been visited by Stephen Crocker, who will be taking up the role of Chief Executive here in January. He was in town for two days of meetings with the staff, as well as paying a visit to Amelia Reynolds at BBC Look East.


He comes to Norwich from a previous role at The Lowry in Salford. Speaking of his move, Stephen says: “I’ve fallen in love with the city. It, to me, just epitomizes what a heritage city should be…but it’s a city that’s moving forward, it’s a city that feels dynamic, that feels vibrant, that’s wanting to grow and develop and be cosmopolitan – and that combination of those two things, I think, is really very, very rare.”
