Anneliese Davidsen appointed as new Director of Two Temple Place, The Bulldog Trust


The Bulldog Trust are delighted to announce the appointment of Anneliese Davidsen as the new Director of Two Temple Place from January 2020. The Trust have taken the exciting step to create a dedicated senior role to drive forward plans for the future of Two Temple Place as activities expand and the profile of the Trust’s beautiful headquarters on London’s Embankment continues to grow. Anneliese has been the Executive Director of the UK's leading children's theatre, the Unicorn Theatre for the last eight years, and will bring a wealth of cultural imagination and operational expertise to the Trust.

Mary Rose Gunn, Chief Executive of The Bulldog Trust commented,
“We can’t wait to see where Anneliese will take the house. In the last ten years Two Temple Place has developed from an unknown and unseen cultural gem to a well-loved space with a dedicated following through our Winter Exhibition Programme, commercial activities and other programmes but there is so much more that can be done. Anneliese’s exceptional track record promoting access to the arts and reaching new audiences aligns perfectly with the aims of the Bulldog Trust as we look to push the boundaries of what Two Temple Place can become as a fully-grown London cultural space.”

Two Temple Place is a magnificent neo-Gothic mansion owned and run by the Bulldog Trust. Activities include the successful Winter Exhibition Programme showcasing regional museum/gallery collections from across the UK through free, annual, exhibitions which have welcomed over 300,000 visitors. On 25th January 2020, Two Temple Place will open for its 9th exhibition Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles. Unbound tells the story of seven pioneering women who went against all established norms to create some of the richest, most diverse and global public collections in the UK today.

The Bulldog Trust also runs The Fore, a seed funder for the non-profit sector. The Fore connects small charities and social enterprises with fresh solutions to challenges from tackling knife crime to food waste, with funding and business skills. The Bulldog Trust is registered charity 1123081.
