We are pleased to introduce and delighted to support the progress of Nia, Sally and Thomas in their development and journey in pursuit of their chosen disciplines. Which is in line with our mission to advance the arts and culture, in particular but not exclusively, in Haywards Heath and the wider Mid Sussex area and to further such other charitable purposes for the public.




NIA 3Nia Coleman graduated from the University of Manchester in 2012 with a first class BA Honours degree having twice won the prestigious Procter-Gregg prize. She is delighted to have recently embarked on a Masters programme in Vocal Performance at The Royal Academy of Music and studies there under the tuition of Glenville Hargreaves and Jonathan Papp. Nia’s roles in her first Opera Scenes productions at the Academy, under the baton of Gareth Hancock, have included Sandrina in scenes from Mozart’s La Finta Giardiniera directed by Christopher Cowell and one of the solo Flower- Maidens in an extract from Wagner’s Parsifal directed by Simon Orio. In her first term she was extremely proud to be awarded ‘Very Highly Commended’ in the Isabel Jay and Blyth-Buesst Operatic Prize, a category second to the winner and finding her name among senior performers at the Royal Academy Opera School.

Thomas GulunskiThomas Golunski is a local Artist based in Ardingly.
