Award Nomination For New Wimbledon Theatre's Manager

Neil Chandler to attend award ceremony at London's Guildhall

New Wimbledon Theatre's General Manager, Neil Chandler, has been nominated for a UK Theatre Award - the only nationwide awards to honour creative excellence and the outstanding achievement seen on and off stage.

Neil has been nominated for the UK Theatre Insurance Award for Theatre Employee or Manager Of The Year.

His previous career included spending ten years as a Cruise Director, working for the world’s leading cruise lines (Carnival Corporation, Princess Cruises), and based in Hollywood.

Neil said: “I am thrilled to have been nominated for Theatre Manager of the Year. I have been with ATG for just over one year and I can honestly say that I haven’t felt as enthused about my job or more proud of the company I work for since leaving Princess Cruises in 2009. 

“The people I have worked with in all of the venues I have had the pleasure of being based in have helped me achieve this nomination – I may have ideas and the drive to succeed but they have helped me achieve – this nomination is for them… But if I win (against two very well respected and deserving nominees), then the award is definitely for me!”

The Awards will be presented on Sunday 9 October at a ceremony at London’s historic Guildhall. Multi-award-winning actor Lesley Manville OBE will compère this year’s event.

Since 1991 UK Theatre’s annual UK Theatre Awards have celebrated the creative excellence and outstanding work seen in UK theatres each year.
