Last week we had the pleasure of having Hannah at The Roses for her work experience placement – our first one of 2024!

Hannah worked across many departments: learning our box office system, supporting our community groups, joining productions meetings, exploring theatre tech and painting the stage!

She was also tasked with creating a 3D globe to be displayed during Gaia, an exhibition at Tewkesbury Abbey, as part of the inaugural Two Rivers Converge Festival. When visiting Tewkesbury Abbey, Hannah spoke about her GCSE Art and was offered a private tour to see their collection of historic stonework, including original floor tiles from the 12th Century!

Hear more about what Hannah had to say about working with us..

What has been the highlight of your placement?

All of it because I learnt so much more than I imagined.

Have you learnt anything about yourself or your skills during this placement?

My confidence has grown and I have learnt more skills that I can use in the future.

Have you learnt or achieved what you wanted to?

I have learnt way more than I wanted to and it had been really educational for what I want to do in the future.

Has anything been surprising or unexpected?

All of what I have done because I wasn’t expecting to learn as much as I did.

Hannah awarded The Roses 5 out of 5 for each question on her feedback survey and had no feedback on how to improve her placement.

To say a huge thank you for her hard work, we gifted Hannah two tickets to see Gaia in action and a Roses tote bag and pen.

We are incredibly passionate about promoting careers in the creative industries. Unfortunately, The Roses doesn’t have any more space to accept work experience applications until September 2024. If you are a school or other educational setting, you can secure a space for your students next year by getting in touch with our Youth and Education Producer, Georgia –
