Marigold Hughes
Head of Programme
Marigold Hughes

Marigold manages the delivery of Streetwise Opera’s work in London, Manchester, Newcastle Gateshead, Nottingham and Teesside. She works with our Programme Producers to develop partnerships and projects in each area, bring new performers into our workshops and generally make sure that we are having a genuine impact on as many people as possible.

Marigold has worked in arts for social change for the last 15 years, as a practitioner, director and producer. She believes creativity and culture allow us to the best of our human selves and wants to help ensure creative opportunities are available for everyone, no matter their circumstances.

She was was once a tambourine-playing dancer in a Klezmer band. It was intensely enjoyable but alas, short lived, as the band broke up shortly after. Marigold is in acute denial about any possible connection between these two facts.
