PERFORMER-PRODUCER | SHOPKEEPER | POPPINS
Makes things and makes things happen
Originally from Hertfordshire and now based between Hitchin and London, I make things (performances, spreadsheets, coffee) and make things happen (live events, creative workshops, independent businesses).
I make performances which straddle theatre, spoken word and comedy and have toured work to venues including the Roundhouse, Soho Theatre, Shoreditch Town Hall, Battersea Arts Centre, Cambridge Junction, Jacksons Lane, Latitude and Bestival.
I make things happen by producing performances, live events and creative workshops having worked with companies including Gandini Juggling, National Centre for Circus Arts, Luca Silvestrini’s Protein Dance, Look Left Look Right and The British Academy.
Currently I am managing an independent, award-winning coffee shop and event space in Hertfordshire, curating a new programme of late night sessions featuring live music, quizzes, craft workshops and innovative food and drink events.
I also offer creative child-care and am honoured to be known as “Sophie Poppins” to the families that I have worked with.
