In-house talent moves up the ranks at The Deck

Hot on the heels of the recent new recruits from outside the NT, The Deck at the National Theatre has announced that Celyn Lloyd Thomas will be joining the expanding events and hospitality team in the role of assistant hospitality manager. Celyn is a university graduate with over eight years experience in the events and creative industries sector, including his most recent position as customer service supervisor at the National Theatre.

Since graduating from The University of Manchester, Celyn has gone on to successfully fulfil a variety of roles within the events industry as well as completing a short course in Major Event Management at City University London in 2014.

Celyn joins The Deck from the inside having fulfilled his previous role at the National Theatre since July 2014 and his knowledge of the building and inner workings of the theatre will enable him to integrate effectively into the team. His new role will involve supporting the overall strategy for Hospitality Events by achieving the highest possible standards for all events in terms of food, client liaison, audience experience, design and creative flair, as well as taking responsibility for the planning, administration, operation and client relationship management for all events.

On the expansion of the team at The Deck and the importance of championing loyal staff, Charley Taylor-Smith, head of hospitality events and commercial business development says “The popularity of The Deck as a premiere London venue has brought an opportunity to expand our team in order to service client demand. It is very important to look close to home when recruiting and we welcome the opportunity to promote existing staff. We are very excited to integrate Celyn into our hospitality and events team.”

The Deck at the National Theatre is a licensed, contemporary and multi-functional rooftop venue in a central London location, offering everything from spectacular catering, overseen by executive chef Simon Flint, to incredible theming and creative flair, thanks to the artistic and theatrical input of the National Theatre.
