Introducing Our New Executive Director

We’re really delighted to announce Dimity Nicholls as our new Executive Director.  Dimity joins us after a long career in a range of roles in venues, festivals and local authorities, and most recently as Education Director for Cubitt Artists. 


Dimity will be joining us full time in August, as Sophie Eustace moves on after 12 brilliant years, to work in the theatre team at Arts Council England.


In response to her appointment, Dimity says:

Having admired their work for many years, I am delighted to be joining the team at Fevered Sleep. I’m looking forward to supporting practice that pushes the boundaries of creative participation and to share in the company’s vision to thread artistic curiosity through all our lives. I wish Sophie all the best for her next steps and thank her and the team for this opportunity to step into the role of Executive Director.


Angela McSherry, Chair of Fevered Sleep says:

A Board of Trustees is hugely dependent on the skills, advocacy and transparency of an organisation’s Executive Director and we are thrilled that Dimity will be working with David and Sam and the Fevered Sleep team to realise our collective ambitions for the future.


For our part, we’re hugely excited to be welcoming Dimity to Fevered Sleep, and we’re really looking forward to working alongside her as we enter a new stage on our journey.  We know that her wisdom, her keen insight and her care are going to help our dreams take flight.
