Helen Marriage worked with the cluster management company Artsadmin, touring companies such as the Bow Gamelan Ensemble, Hesitate and Demonstrate and Mike Figgis.
From 1985 she worked with the London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT), where she programmed and managed shows from all over the world. In 1990 she set up a £1m arts programme at Canary Wharf. Between 1993 and 2000 she transformed the Salisbury Festival from a small local affair into what The Times called ‘an astonishing success’ developing the programme and increasing the turnover by almost 700%.
Since 2000 she has been working as an independent producer and consultant. In 2002 she produced one of the official Mall pageants for the Queen’s Jubilee.
Artichoke is a registered charity founded in 2002 by Helen Marriage and Nicky Webb, producers of extraordinary live events.
Artichoke works in unusual places: in streets, public spaces or in the countryside.
