Eloise will take on the role for a period of nine months from mid-July, but has kindly offered to volunteer and start meeting the team at Hijinx's Unity Festival in Cardiff 3-7 July. Eloise comments:

"I have admired Hijinx's work from afar for many years and believe their mission, to ensure more learning disabled and neurodivergent performers are represented on stage and screen, is vital. I am excited to work alongside the team to support them during this period of transition as Interim CEO. I cannot wait to get started!"
