01-Sep-2011 - NEW GENERAL MANAGER FOR EASTERN ANGLES
Eastern Angles are delighted to welcome Matthew Linley as their new General Manager
Matthew cut his teeth as a venue manager running the Michael Tippett Centre (Bath), 21 South Street (Reading) and Phoenix Arts (Leicester) where he oversaw the development of the new capital build Phoenix Square. Since moving to the East region Matthew has had a busy freelance career working for a range of clients including Arts Council England, the hub, BBC, Dartington and EM Media.
Matthew said: "As someone who has always been interested in words and new writing and the relationship between arts companies and place the opportunity to work for Eastern Angles was one I had to grab! With four new plays opening in the next six months and an ambitious project with Vivacity, Peterborough's Cultural Trust, called Forty Years On to launch, it's a very exciting time to be joining the company."
Eastern Angles' Artistic Director, Ivan Cutting said: "We are very lucky to have found a new General Manager with Matthew's experience, energy and enthusiasm. Having survived the last six months without a General Manager it's a great relief to have him on board and he already feels like an established member of the team. He comes to us with lots of new, exciting ideas - we are all really looking forward to working with Matthew and introducing him to the delights of the Eastern Angles Christmas show!"
