Since joining the HfC, Agg-Manning has delivered a number of new projects in all aspects of the performing arts including singing, acting and writing for stage.

She said: “It’s been a really difficult decision to make but I am very excited about the opportunity to work on new projects in the theatre world and very grateful to HfC for all the experience and support I have been given.”

Currently managing HfC’s Summer School, which gives young people the chance to work alongside professionals to put together a show for the professional stage, Agg-Manning will be directing the resulting show, The Wind in The Willows – which will be performed on the HfC stage on August 18.

HfC director, Julien Boast, said: “We are sorry to see Polly leave the Hall, but delighted and proud at the opportunities facing her and the exciting future she has in the arts.”

She will continue to work with and support the Hall by managing a number of freelance projects.
