Lucy Hall trained at Central School of Art in London with Pamela Howard and at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, New York. Lucy was the recipient of the Bunkacho government fellowship for artists from abroad, allowing her to spend a year in Japan studying traditional Japanese theatre.


She has worked as a set and costume designer for theatres in Britain and abroad, including the Ambassadors Theatre, Gielgud Theatre and Arts Theatre in the West End, Royal Court Theatre, Hampstead Theatre, Gate Theatre, National Theatre Studio, Sheffield Crucible, Glasgow Citizens, Stephen Joseph Theatre Scarborough, Salisbury Playhouse, Bath Theatre Royal, English Touring Theatre, English Touring Opera, Theatre Projects Tokyo, Copenhagen Opera, Theatre Genedlaethol and Theatr Clwyd.

Lucy has a PGCE and has been involved in numerous theatre-in-education projects coordinated by South Bank Centre, Royal Court Theatre and English Touring Opera and has held Artist Residencies in a variety of educational settings. Outside of design teaching, she works alongside the staff and student body to highlight equality, diversity and inclusion, striving to deliver an inclusive training that is fit for the future and reflective of the C21. She works to position students ‘within the work’ alongside teaching the skills and is the representative for Stage Sight at RWCMD which fights to increase diversity in off-stage roles.

Notable achievements

Lucy recently graduated with distinction from an MA in Fine Art at the University of the West of England and continues to develop her Fine Art practice alongside teaching and designing. A focus on value systems attributed to women’s labour is a theme running through her practice.

Lucy became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA) in 2023.
