Thea Hope
Managing Director and Founder

Originally trained in performance and a classical violinist, Thea has worked as actor, director and producer in theatre, in film production and casting, and within the fashion and event industries. When she’s not developing her own creative projects in Berlin, she’s the office manager for a management consultancy in London, oscillating between the two as she does with creativity and business. Being a jack of all trades has finally lead her to being the master of one, namely The Palace, which is her vision and a dream she intends to keep living. She takes the lead on PR and as artists liaison.
