Set up in 1999, the award is in memory of Hazel Sharples, a Stage Manager and Arts Officer who passed away suddenly in 1995. During her career, Hazel worked for the Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne and National Theatre, as well as chairing the board of the Warehouse Theatre in Croydon. Each year her friends and former colleagues make donations towards the prize for a third year Technical Theatre Arts student at Guildhall, who is voted for by their peers.


Well done Becky!
