Welcome to our new Admin and Communications Coordinator!


I’m Mathilde (Pronounced the same as Matilda) and I am the new Administration and Communications Coordinator for Black Country Touring.

It’s just been my first week working with the company, it’s already been lovely. All of the staff are exceptionally kind and welcoming and I already feel part of the team. I have recieved a really in-depth induction, which has been incredibly useful for further understanding the processes here at BCT but also to really learn the history of the company.

On Tuesday, my second day, I went to the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton, to meet the Young Promoter group from Pens Meadow school who are part of the next Young Promoters Festival, and see Natalie (Young and Community Promoter Co-ordinator) in action. We took the group for an access all areas tour of the Arena Theatre which the Young Promoters absolutely loved. It was fantastic to see BCT doing what it does best, enabling arts to be accessible to all in the Black Country.

I am really excited, and proud, to be working for Black Country Touring, and can’t wait to experience everything this job will have to offer.

You’ll probably be hearing from me again, so look out for it!

Thanks for reading,
Mathilde Petford.
