Talking about the news producer Ameena Hamid whose West End debut was cut short at the end of 2020 said: “When the announcement came for the most recent lockdown my first thought was “what can I do?” and my mind immediately turned to those who have just graduated and those who are about to. It’s such a difficult time to be in the industry let alone entering it and it’s so important to recognise and support that fresh talent. I had admired The Grad Fest and what they’ve done over the year and so got in touch with them about planning a large scale COVID safe event that would put graduates in a renowned space and raise money for a great cause. Thanks to a brilliant team, we are able to announce the event and open submissions just two weeks after that idea started and I can’t wait to create ‘Graduates at Cadogan Hall’. This event is about shining a meaningful spotlight on graduates and raising money for those in the industry who need our support now more than ever.”
Deadline for submissions is 12pm on Sunday 14th February. Applicants will be notified of the outcome on Saturday 20th February. To apply visit: https://www.ameenahamidproductions.co.uk/graduates-at-cadogan-hall
