Adam Knight joins HQ Theatres as Theatre Director at Crewe Lyceum Theatre

Adam Knight has been appointed Theatre Director at The Lyceum Theatre, Crewe. Currently, Programming Manager at Belfast Waterfront and Ulster Hall, Adam joins the venue from March 2018 following the departure of Gordon Millar who will move to the position of Artistic Director & CEO at Unity Theatre, Liverpool.

Prior to his time at the Waterfront and Ulster Hall Adam was Executive Director at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, General Manager at Edinburgh Playhouse and Operations Director at the Grand Opera House, Belfast.

Crewe Lyceum which opened in 1911 has been operated by HQ Theatres since 2013 after the company successfully bid to win the operating contract. Its programme of events includes week-long touring musicals, drama, award-winning comedians and family shows.

Julian Russell, CEO at HQ Theatres said:

“We’re delighted to have Adam on board. He brings with him a wealth of experience gained in regional theatre and we’re certain he’ll prove a real asset to the venue and to the organisation as a whole. The HQ Theatres model is based on strong local programming and venue leadership and we’re confident Adam will bring that to the fore at The Lyceum.

Gordon has done a great job in developing Crewe Lyceum in his time with us and we wish him well as he departs for pastures new. We’re pleased that, in Adam, the venue will remain in very safe hands.”

Adam Knight said:

“I’m thrilled to be joining HQ Theatres as Theatre Director at Crewe Lyceum. I’m very much looking forward to working with the team to build on the work done by my predecessor in developing the programme and the overall experience for our customers throughout Cheshire and beyond.”
