Meet the team


Sam Glenister-BateyHead of Events & Venue Hire

Sam has always had a passion for events and studied Events Management prior to working in some of London’s most visited cultural venues as an events professional, including the Science Museum and the Tower of London. With 15 years of experience Sam brings a wealth of ideas and experience to the team.

“With so much choice I find it difficult to choose a favourite venue but I will never forget the first time I walked into the Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall. The stunning Flentrop Orgelbouw organ is an impressive backdrop. With the new light-filled courtyard next door, the opportunities for events in these spaces are endless!”

Karis ClappertonEvents & Venue Hire Coordinator

Karis has a background in event production and project management bringing to the team a can-do attitude, a wealth of knowledge and creativity.

“All of the venues are my favourite but I am really enjoy working in the Performance Hall, the stunning wooden latticed walls make the space both visually impressive and provide state of the art acoustics with the most sophisticated technology. I also love the Britten Theatre, the home of the RCM Opera Studios, a grand tiered auditorium ideal for a variety of performances.”
