The Barrington Centre in Ferndown was named after James Barrington, a prominent local businessman. Now, his Grandson, Rupert Barrington, has been appointed as the new general manager at the Barrington.

Rupert, who will take over in August, comes with a wealth of knowledge in theatre having worked at The Jellicoe Theatre at Bournemouth and Poole College for 10 years. He has also just completed a contract at the Regent Theatre in Christchurch.

Rupert said, “I can’t wait to take up the reins at The Barrington and continue Grandpa’s legacy, not only in making a success of the centre and its beautiful theatre but also in ensuring its future for generations to come.

I’ve got some great ideas that the team at PramaLIFE, who operate the Barrington, have welcomed and I can’t wait to get started.”

Rupert also works with his wife Jo, delivering Performing Arts classes to children. Jo said, “We’d love to bring some sessions over to Ferndown. Children can have such positive experiences when learning and doing something they love. I am very proud that Rupert can work somewhere with his family name above the door! We are all really excited!”

Steve Robinson, CEO of The Prama Foundation, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Rupert to the PramaLIFE team at the Barrington, we are excited to see the further development of this special community hub.”
