Nicolette Hamilton, has worked as a community partnership co-ordinator for the British Museum for two years and having recently moved to Gloucestershire, has agreed to take up the role.

The Folk of Gloucester, which is a row of medieval timber framed buildings in Westgate Street, will be a venue for events and exhibitions.
