Kate Webster to take over as Proms Chair

Kate Webster will take over from Richard Clegg as Chair of Proms at St Jude’s from September.

 

Kate is a member of the Proms Board, chairing the Education Committee and responsible for Heritage Walks and the Friends programme. She has been involved in Proms since soon after retiring in 2016. She was formerly Head of Queen Elizabeth's Girls' in Barnet, following five years as Deputy Head at The Henrietta Barnett School.

 

“I’m honoured to take on this role,” said Kate, “although Richard will be a hard act to follow. 

 

“We are now entering the fourth decade of Proms, and my ambition is to develop all strands of the Festival, bringing it to an even wider audience. In this, I know I will be working with a very committed Board and wider group of committee members and volunteers who all make this annual event possible.

 

“I’d like to thank Richard for his dedication to the role over the last seven years.”

 

Kate has lived in Hampstead Garden Suburb since 1995 and has been a Friend of Proms for much of that time.
