Project Manager for Capability Brown Birthday and Festival

A new opportunity appears for somebody to take a leading role as Project Manager for the Capability Brown Birthday and Festival. How about that – the task of arranging a Nation-wide Birthday Party!

Naturally, a host of specialist skills are required, for this isn’t your average festival. Highlights include: experience of writing Heritage Lottery Fund applications; volunteer engagement; audience outreach and communications strategies; management of the overall project and more.

As the job description states: ‘The Festival will inspire new generations of visitors, participants and experts to leave a legacy of new information, skills and enthusiasm for designed landscape.’

Whilst I’m not involved in this recruitment process at all, I’m sure I speak for many in wishing for a lively, energetic person who can lead from the front; engaging with all manner of folk in the same way that our Mr. Brown once did. Not an easy role to take on, but an exciting one for sure with a chance to make a real difference to countless numbers of people.

Don’t hang around – applications are due in by April Fools Day!

More information can be found on the Landscape Institute website, but here’s a quick link to the job description.

Good Luck to those who are planning to apply, and for all others – please share this as widely as possible in order to attract the best possible candidates!


About Lancelot Capability Brown

Hello and Welcome to my Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown blog! I thrive on the richness and diversity found within our historic gardens and landscapes and I hope through this blog to paint a picture of Lancelot Brown’s 18th Century world, his landscapes and life. I’d like this blog to spread the Brownian word far and wide, so please join in, suggest post subjects, send in potential articles or links to anything and everything with 'Capability'. I’ll also be looking forward to the Capability Brown Tercentenary Celebration of his birth in 2016, and look forward to an incredible year where the work of Brown can receive more praise and recognition than ever before. I've also launched a Twitter account under the title of @Brown2016 where for the next few years I plan to help spread the word and at the very least play my part in the build-up to a special year for all who enjoy landscape gardening in its true form. All views are my own and do not represent those of any organisation.
