Booking Agent Sophie Roberts Returns to BIMM
We always love it when BIMM graduates come back to visit their old stomping ground and let us know how they’ve been getting on – and that’s exactly what happened when former BIMM Brighton student Sophie Roberts came in to chat about her career with some of our Event Management and Music Business students.
After completing her studies at BIMM, Sophie went on to work as an Event Programmer and Manager at renowned Brighton haunt, Green Door Store – a late night bar, live music venue and nightclub located directly underneath Brighton Railway Station. Sophie was instrumental in developing the venue into one of Brighton’s favourite hubs for live music. Her hard work saw her running up to 14 events every week under a central ethos which guarantees there’s always ‘something for everyone’.
Sophie now works as a Booking Assistant at 13 Artists – a live international booking agency based in Brighton who have artists on their roster including Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, The Stone Roses, George Ezra, Duffy, Suede, The Dandy Warhols, Portishead, and BIMM alumni The Kooks, George Ezra and Radiohead (Philip Selway and Ed O’Brien). On a day-to-day level, Sophie liaises closely with the Head and Owner of 13 Artists, Charlie Myatt.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to Sophie for coming in and speaking with our students about her career and showing them first hand just what you can achieve with a degree from BIMM.
If you’d like a career in the live events industry like Sophie, why not consider studying a BA (Hons) in Event Management at BIMM Brighton or another one of BIMM’s colleges in London, Manchester, Bristol or Dublin.
