Four new members have been appointed to the trust which oversees Rhodes Arts Complex – as the South Road venue prepares to open its refurbished bar.

Former Manor Fields Primary School head Steve Connors has been appointed as a new trustee while Jill Daniels, Will O’Neil and Indie columnist and former town and district councillor Chas Gill, a long-serving member of Bishop's Stortford Musical Theatre Company, join Rhodes Birthplace Trust as co-opted advisors.

Their appointments come at a crossroads with plans to build a 500-seat theatre as part of a new arts centre in the town centre. It would be the cornerstone of East Herts Council’s redevelopment of the Old River Lane site and means a new role for Rhodes as a complementary facility.

The volunteers are united in agreement that Rhodes Arts Complex and its museum have a vibrant future, and this is reflected in the present refurbishment of Rhodes’ theatre bar, which is due to be reopened on Saturday, February 2.
