New faces at International Festival Office

As the new season for the Oundle International Festival gets underway, festival goers will be meeting the Oundle Music Trust’s new Administrative Director, Camilla Sherwin, who will be supporting the Oundle International Festival, Music in Quiet Places and Oundle for Organist programmes.

Camilla brings with her a wealth of experience from the private, not for profit and voluntary sectors. Most recently she has been the chair of two local organisations; roles which involved working closely with staff and volunteers to deliver successful projects and useful services in the community, marketing and public representation, raising funds and managing their expenditure, and along the way has established strong links with local organisations and businesses in the area.

Camilla will be in charge of all aspects of the Oundle Music Trust’s administration. The Trust is the main body for the Festival, Music in Quiet Places, Oundle for Organists and the Oundle Food Festival.

Before moving to Oundle, Camilla was Business Development Manager at London Remade, a private public partnership which was funded primarily through the Mayor’s office. Whilst in post she raised significant amounts of public funding and ran the corporate sponsorship programme. She was also responsible for initiating new projects, developing networks and partnerships as well as managing the marketing and events team.

Kenneth Richardson, Artistic Director of Oundle Music Trust said: ‘I am delighted that we have persuaded someone of Camilla’s experience to join us and help us realise the many exciting projects and programmes.’

Other new members include Frances Mansergh, Communications and Courses Manager, and Emma Cooper, Festival and Box Office Administrator.
