Curtains up on theatrical careers

Two Leeds apprentices have landed jobs at Leeds Grand Theatre.

Grace Dean, 21, and Bethany Beal, 20, both completed cultural heritage operations apprenticeships through Leeds City College, developing and delivering education programmes, tours and events, before working part-time at the theatre until full-time recruitment started.

Bethany is now a finance assistant at the theatre, while Grace’s role at The Grand’s sister venue, the City Varieties Music Hall, will allow her will continue the work she did on her apprenticeship.

Grace said: “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to remain within the company in a role that I am highly passionate about.”
