She has deserved to be recognised for her achievements’’.

I have achieved a lot since moving to London and this growth has occurred due to the team at Central Hall who have supported me since I joined the venue in 2011. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Central Hall for supporting and helping me over the past two years and I hope to continue growing professionally whilst I remain at the venue”.
