With a 25-year career working in a variety of technical theatre roles, Matt is a hugely experienced Technical Manager with all-round project management skills.
Matt graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester in 1989 and went on to post graduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
After graduation he worked on Holiday on Ice, touring the world for eight years within their electrical department and rising to the role of chief electrician for its Blue Division.
After returning to the UK he took up the role of theatre technician at Grimsby Auditorium, where he remained for seven years, progressing to the post of Technical Manager.
In 2004, Matt became the first Technical Manager for the Grove Theatre, Dunstable, where he took an active role in the project during the theatre’s construction and commissioning phases. He continued in his role from the theatre’s opening in 2007 until his move to Theatreplan in December 2016.
With Theatreplan having been engaged as theatre consultants for the Grove Theatre development, Matt already has a close working relationship with our consultant team and an appreciation of our approach to theatre design.
