Meet the organisers

The RSC Friends is run by a group of volunteers. They each work towards the organising and running of Friends' events. The organisers also make decisions on the Friends' funding and help organise volunteer work within the RSC.

Coreen Turner - RSC Friends co-ordinator
Coreen oversees the regional Friends' organisers and represents the RSC Friends both within the RSC and at the community forum.

Penny Kirkwood - RSC Friends Organiser
Penny organises the events in Stratford-upon-Avon, from liaising with actors and creative teams to booking venues and catering. Penny also organises the rota for the Friends' information desk at The Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Valerie Thompson - RSC Friends Organiser
Valerie helps run the events in Stratford as well as keeping the RSC Friends' information desk up to date with all relevant information.

Yvonne and David Richardson - RSC Friends Organisers
Newcastle upon Tyne
