Southbank Centre creative boss Madani Younis leaves after a year

Younis's appointment was announced in September 2018 and he took up the post – overseeing the programme at the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room – in January.

Elaine Bedell, chief executive of Southbank Centre, said: "We have enjoyed working with Madani and he has made a significant and positive contribution to discussions about our future creative direction. We wish him well for the future."

Madani Younis said: "I am pleased to have been able to set in motion a number of creative projects with the help of the talented team around me during my time with Southbank Centre.

"I have decided however that I want to pursue other creative interests in the coming months. My thanks go to the Southbank Centre's board of governors and staff."

Younis will leave Southbank Centre in December 2019.
