Gemma commented:

“I am thrilled to be taking up this post at Blackheath Halls, an
established home for live music, comedy, children’s theatre and
community events in South East London. It’s a very important time for
the venue, as we embark on a £2 million renovation of this Grade II
listed building. I look forward to creating artistic programmes that
will engage existing loyal supporters, attract new audiences and develop
the relationship with Trinity Laban’s international community of
students and staff “

LEAN warmly welcomes Gemma to the arts family in Lewisham.
