LWMS is a CIO, registered with the Charity Commission since 2022 (registered number 1200030). The CIO has three Trustees responsible for its legal obligations. Day-to-day management is delegated to a management committee.

Charity Trustees

LWMS has three founding Charity Trustees – Nick Kaijaks (chair), Sam Henshaw, and Sarah Phipps – responsible for the legal obligations of the CIO and upholding its constitution, and elected by its members at an Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Management committee

Day-to-day management of the Society is by the committee, whose members are elected at AGM, and represent the membership at large. The committee selects shows, recruits the artistic team to stage them, and then supports that team through the production process. The committee usually meets monthly to discuss finance, upcoming productions, fundraising, publicity and social activities. Any member can request items to be discussed at committee, by contacting us.
