After leaving university I worked within multiple PR agencies and was fortunate enough to work on some of the biggest shows in the West End. This included Hamilton, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Blithe Spirit, Dial M for Murer, School of Rock the Musical, The Young Vic’s Cat on A Hot Tin Roof, A Woman of No Importance, Don Juan in Soho, Young Marx, Dick Whittington, Julius Caesar, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Ghost Stories, The Croft, Allelujah!, Annie and Mary Poppins.
This role taught me a wealth of knowledge when it comes to working with the press. I would arrange interviews with both adult and child cast members, facilitate and organise press nights and major events.
I would undertake extensive research for the writing of our press releases across a host of topics; including casting announcements, show announcements, ticket extensions, lottery plans and audition dates. This was all done in a highly reactive environment as press enquiries and news stories were created following the sending out of the release.
I have worked numerous red carpet events including the Olivier Awards, World Premieres and Event Gala/ Charity Nights.
I’ve worked alongside Children In Need, the Royal Variety Show, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, X Factor, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, Magic at the Musicals, Britain’s Got Talent, BBC Radio Two and numerous newspaper outlets.
I’ve also specialised in social media creation and execution, having taken a number of courses on how to create engaging content, always with the intention of upwardly driving awareness. I've also run social media accounts with tens of thousands of followers and would create, write and schedule posts.
In addition to being contacted about my writing, I’d be delighted to speak about freelance PR with anyone.
