Vote for Lily-Rose – VisitEngland’s Tourism Superstar award 2024

Roundhouse Birmingham’s own Lily-Rose Sheppard is a finalist in this year’s VisitEngland Tourism Superstar awards! Please vote for her and celebrate the incredible work she does!

The Tourism Superstar award is an annual competition, organised by VisitEngland, which champions those in the tourism industry who provide visitors with unforgettable experiences. We are absolutely thrilled that Roundhouse Birmingham’s own Lily-Rose Sheppard is amongst a shortlist of 10 finalists in this year’s competition. Lily-Rose’s love of history and her knowledge of Birmingham’s canal network, coupled with the way she helps bring Birmingham’s rich history to life for all guests, makes her a great choice for the VisitEngland Tourism Superstar competition.

Lily-Rose joined Roundhouse Birmingham in 2022 as a volunteer kayak guide, but through her dedication and consistent delivery of great experiences to our guests, she became a paid member of the team. She’s learnt to kayak, rescue people capsized in boats and deliver informative tours to seasoned kayakers and those new to the water, making all that paddle with her feel extremely comfortable and welcome. Lily-Rose’s previous experience as a performer also put her in good stead when connecting with audiences through engaging tours.

Whether you’ve had an unforgettable experience seeing the city differently on a kayak tour or learnt something brand new, Lily-Rose truly goes the extra mile, and makes the experience for our visitors so special.

Please vote for Lily-Rose and help us celebrate all the incredible work she does. Click here to vote! VisitEngland – Lily-Rose Sheppard (secure-platform.com)
