Opera Holland Park has been led superbly by Charles Mackay CBE since the company became an independent charity in October 2015. Charles’s nine year term as Chairman thus sadly comes to an end in September 2024.

Following a competitive search process, the Board is delighted to announce that Sir David Verey CBE will succeed Charles as Chair. Like Charles, David has been a supporter of Opera Holland Park since its inception, and also brings a wealth of experience, having chaired arts organisations including Tate, Art Fund, Government Art Collection and Friends of Leighton House.
