1 December 2017

PROMOTER, VENUE operator and festival organiser DHP Family has hired Matthew Cook as venue programmer for its London venues Oslo (cap. 350) in Hackney, Soho’s Borderline (300) and Islington’s The Garage (600)) and Thousand Island (150).

Cook has worked with a wide range of events and venues including The Great Escape and London’s Southbank Centre complex, Roundhouse (3,110) and Hackney Empire (1,500).

“Music is London’s lifeblood and these venues play a key role in sustaining a healthy live music scene in the capital,” says Cook.

Meanwhile DHP has made a number of in-house promotions, with Kelly Bennaton becoming head of marketing, Sophie Power appointed head of creative and Anwyn Williams taking on the role of marketing manager.

DHP also owns Nottingham venues Rock City (1,900) and Stealth (660), and Bristol’s Thekla (400).
