Otley Courthouse is preparing to bid farewell to its centre manager.

Chloe Perry  has announced she is leaving at the end of June to become head of operations and front of house at the Polka Theatre, London.

The move comes six months after Chloe had joined the arts centre to fill the gap left by her predecessor, Robbie Swale.

Arts centre staff say they will be sad to see her go but has already begun recruiting for her successor to ensure the venue’s busy events schedule continues smoothly. Chloe said: “I’m very sorry to be leaving. I have thoroughly enjoyed working at in Otley and it has not been an easy decision to move on.”

Applications close on Wednesday, May 28. The venue is currently celebrating its tenth anniversary.
