After many years serving on the board and over 3 years as Chair we are sad to see Emma Brookes step down from the Fringe. Emma has done an incredible job of steering the governance, whilst the Artistic Directors have been able to focus on the amazing creative output of the organisation.
Initially bribed with vegan cake (or so the story goes), Emma took over the role from Jacky Scott in 2015 and steered the team through the challenge of delivering two festival Fringes, most notably supporting admin staff, providing yummy treats at meetings and introducing spread sheets to the team!
Emma and her partner Dan have both been the greatest advocates of the Fringe. Moreover, they have become familiar audience members and much valued supporters of all the arts and culture in Milton Keynes.
On behalf of the board, our members, artists, volunteers and the wider arts community in MK, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Emma and wish her well in all her future ventures.
Jessica Rost, Chair of the Board, MK Festival Fringe
