Charlie Hislop

Charlie set up Southampton Festivals as a not-for profit organisation in 2012 to help the city make more of itself – regeneration through events. ā€œIā€™m driven by trying to create opportunities for people to flourish, whether they are the many talented artists and performers in this city; young creatives trying to get a career going; or simply people who want to get involved in something or make the most of living here.ā€ His career and background has been in public policy, local government, trade unions and communities – most recently focussed on better lives for older people and managing an EU ageing project.
