What's been your highlight during your time at Guildhall?

My highlight during my time at Guildhall has been the opportunity to experience roles across multiple departments and performances.  I am really enjoying being able to get a broad range of basic skills and insights into all areas. 

What other passions and projects have you enjoyed exploring during your time at Guildhall? 

During my course, I have had the chance to take on a Scenic Artist role, which was a refreshing change and a fun way to explore something entirely new. Additionally, alongside the course, I've been developing an interest in pyrotechnics for theatre and events, learning the relevant skills in the process. I also find personal enjoyment in conducting historical research on various subjects that pique my curiosity. 

What are you most interested in working in after you graduate?

One important thing I've learned is the value of people skills and simply being nice to others. I've come to realise that positive relationships and a friendly attitude are key for a well-functioning team and a pleasant work environment, It can improve team dynamics, and create a more enjoyable atmosphere for everyone involved.
