We’d like to thank Olivia Hubbard for sending us this reflection on her time with Highlights. Olivia joined us as a Young Promoter at several Cumbria Village Hall venues in the Autumn season, 2023. She interviewed a number of arts professionals about their work and roles within shows and you can read the articles here. Olivia is a Year 9 student at Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale and was gaining skills and experience for her Arts Award.

“It’s good to hear about other people’s experiences.”
“A big challenge was my confidence and when I got to a venue, using my initiative to go and find a job to do.”
“I did find it fun once I got over my nerves, I did learn a lot. I did not expect to take this much away from it.”
