Sophie Fullerlove

Sophie leads the team at The Spring as Director and Chief Executive. Her role includes all areas of strategic management including working with the trustees to write and deliver all areas of the Business Plan. She also programmes The Spring’s live events and visual arts, manages relationships with funders and partners, is responsible for budgets and fundraising and deals with room hirings.

Since taking up her position Sophie has increased the ambition of The Spring. She has particularly focused on programming high quality and high profile performances and increased the reach of the venue through the outreach programme.

She wants you to know that she genuinely believes that watching and taking part the arts and heritage activities can transform lives and she is dedicated to making The Spring a cultural highlight for the region.

Sophie’s background lies in arts and theatre management. She has a degree in History and Archaeology from Cardiff University and a postgraduate diploma in Arts Management from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. She has worked in marketing and development roles in arts venues in Hereford and Salisbury. Before joining The Spring she was General Manager at Forest Forge Theatre Company.

Outside her life at The Spring Sophie enjoys going to the theatre and is an enthusiastic reader and baker. She lives in Southampton with her husband and pet tortoise.
