Karen came back to join the Box Office team at the New Theatre Royal Portsmouth in 2017. She was keen to return because of her great love of our beautiful Victorian theatre and considers it a privilege to work in the front of house where she is able to meet with performers, practitioners, visitors and patrons.

In her leisure time Karen is passionate about all things arts and culture so when not at work, or watching a show in our theatre, she is likely to be at a gallery, the cinema, reading (or lurking in a bookshop/coffee shop) or most likely out cycling…possibly to a bookshop!
