Lucy is passionate about music education, conservation and sustainability. She is a Mum of three and a flute player in her spare time, having studied at the Royal College of Music, London.
In 2023 she joined the AEG Presents European Senior Leadership Team as Artistic Director, assuming responsibility for setting the artistic direction across the company’s live touring and events business. Lucy is set on driving AEG’s expansion into new areas and genres, ranging from classical and orchestral, through to theatrical and dance. This summer Lucy broke new ground by programming and producing the first ever orchestral concert to be presented at American Express presents BST Hyde Park, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and celebrated UK tenor Alfie Boe.
Lucy was previously the Artistic Director of the Royal Albert Hall where she worked across the depth and breadth of the business during her remarkable tenure. Over her 20 years she revitalized the Hall’s events with an eclectic range including circus shows, dance, sports, and the biggest rock and pop names across the industry, while still hosting the prestigious BBC Proms. She also oversaw an Education & Outreach program that worked with 200,000 participants to provide a large variety of activities annually for a range of communities both within London and across the UK.
Her achievements don’t end there. Not only has Lucy held the chair of the National Arenas Association, which represents 23 UK-based arenas, including The O2, Manchester AO Arena and Glasgow’s SEC, she also is a founding member of the LIVE group and sits on the board of Nordoff & Robbins, the UK’s largest Music Therapy charity. Last year, Lucy received the NAA Award for Outstanding Contribution to the National Arenas Association and the Live Music Industry in 2020 for her work during the pandemic. Additionally, she was recognised as one of Music Week’s Top Most Influential Women in Music and an international honouree on VenuesNow’s inaugural Impact International list for her significant contributions to the venue business.
