Victoria Baths Trust

Seeking new trustees

Victoria Baths is entereing an exciting new phase of its history. We now seek to expand our board of trustees by appointing additional trustees with key skills to help us realise our vision.

At this time, we are seeking in particular individuals with a background in marketing with a focus on leisure, tourism, culture, the arts, heritage, visitor attractions and events.

Please contact Trustee Mike Franks ( if you feel you possess relevant skills and you would like to join us. We will then send you:

- the Code of Conduct for Trustees

- the Role Specification for Trustees

- Background information for potential Trustees

Should you wish to apply to become a Trustee, we would ask you to provide a CV and a personal statement (in 100 words) showing how your expertise would complement our existing skills base. 

Trustees would need to be able to attend a two hour Council of Management meeting every six weeks, as well as any appropriate sub-committee meetings.

The Manchester Victoria Baths Trust was set up by local residents to pursue the aim of re-opening the Baths. The Trust is a company limited by guarantee (Co Number 2841292), a registered charity (Charity Number 1026351).


The Trust has managed Victoria Baths on behalf of Manchester City Council since 2000. The Trust currently has twelve Trustees and eight members of staff. There are over a hundred active volunteers working with the Victoria Baths project.
