Culture and Libraries Manager
Lesley has worked in cultural management for 25 years. After a false start as a
bank teller, she studied history at Stirling University and while there, worked
as an usher(ette) at the Macrobert. Since then, she has worked as a programmer,
venue manager and arts development officer in Chesterfield, East Kilbride, Stirling
and Fife, arriving in Falkirk in 2004 to take up the post of Cultural Services Manager.
As Culture and Libraries Manager for the Trust, she is responsible for the management
and development of our arts, museums' and libraries services and is particularly
concerned with how these services share knowledge, expertise and good practice to
help build loyalty among, and communicate effectively with, their customers.
Lesley believes that strong and vibrant cultural provision contributes to a healthy
and resilient community and is excited about the role the Trust can play in generating
quality of life benefits to the people of the Falkirk area through its services
When she has any spare time, Lesley seeks out new and intriguing music (usually
via the internet but occasionally venturing out to live gigs) as well as finding
time to check out exhibitions, performances and screenings at the Park Gallery,
Hippodrome and FTH Theatre.
