Theatre producer Eleanor Lloyd was appointed president of Society of London Theatre in 2020, having served on the board for the previous six years as an independent producer. SOLT works with and on behalf of its members to champion theatre and the performing arts and delivers a range of services both to assist our members and to promote theatre going to a wide audience. Upon her appointment, Lloyd said the “industry has a crucial role to play as the nation recovers from an unprecedented crisis. I am proud to be stepping up at this critical moment and committed to helping our vibrant and diverse community rebuild”. With support from Arts Council England and Netflix, SOLT set up the Theatre Artists’ Fund to provide emergency support for theatre workers and freelancers across the UK during successive lockdowns.
