Since graduating Lottie has continued to work professionally in various tours and productions all over the UK and the world. Such credits include the title role in The Rainbow Fish, Maid Marian in Robin Hood and Virtue in The Witches Bogey. In more recent years Lottie has gained experience directing, creating and choreographing theatre shows, tours and productions for popular UK theme parks such as Chessington World of Adventures and Alton Towers. A big part of these roles included training and advising professional singers, actors and dancers.

Over the past 2 years Lottie has been lucky enough to pursue her love of working with children by creating and running the successful Children’s Parties Company, Lulamoon. She works hard to ensure the parties create a unique experience for the birthday child, by putting her own creativity and passion into the business every day.

Alongside Lulamoon Lottie currently teaches drama for the Ark Trust. Her drama sessions are part of the fantastic day centre which provides lessons and activities for students with learning difficulties.

Lottie is now beginning to start a family with husband and musician, Tom – she would love to pass on the skills she has learnt to other budding performers.
