Sophia’s background is in music, having worked for some of the country’s top music festivals and venues. Together with her clarinettist husband Jack, 2020 sees Sophia launch a new music series in Kendal town centre. She is also developing a residential course for young musicians with the backing of Cumbria Music Hub. Having joined the Kendal Museum team in 2019, she is enjoying getting to know the collections and the amazing stories that come with them. She is always on the lookout for new ways for the museum to engage with the local and visiting population. Her favourite item in the museum (though it’s very hard to pick just one!) is the brain coral.
