Head of Creative Learning
I originally trained in Drama and Music and previously worked extensively in Health, Voluntary, Local Authority and Education settings. I have performed, facilitated and trained my way through life with the common theme always being increasing access to the arts with a belief in the power of arts participation to change people’s lives for the better. As manager of Engage I oversee all Community and Education activity for the theatre which includes projects, workshops, talks, tours and show events.
Mayflower Musical Youth Theatre Musical Director
and Education Programme Assistant
After graduating from Manchester with a degree in Music, I returned to Winchester to become Musical Director for Encore Youth Theatre. I have also been Musical Director for Southampton Musical Society's recent production of Our House. I am a relatively new addition to the Engage team. I greatly enjoy the variety of work and opportunities available to me through this role and look forward to many more.
Mayflower Musical Youth Theatre Director
and Education Programme Officer
I work with young people who have a love of the performing arts. At the youth theatre we offer opportunities for creative development, whilst devising and working with young people on their annual musical theatre production. My Education role gives me creative opportunities to devise and plan workshops for educational visits. I create bespoke packages for groups to visit the theatre whilst assisting with the programming of the Engage department ranging from visits, tours, festival planning, and organising careers events - no day is ever the same!
