Former Metro Cinema director Andrew McIntyre has returned to the Derby arts scene after being appointed as Derby Theatre’s new business development manager.

Andrew has a long association of working in the city, as well as across the UK, with, and alongside, a variety of arts and cultural organisations and projects. He has over 20 years of cultural management experience, which started out when he marketed and was a road crew member for 1980s university rock and pop gigs in Manchester.

He worked in Derby for many years as the director of the Metro Cinema in Green Lane and was one of the two co-founders and drivers of Derby-based arts centre Quad, for its first seven years of development.

Andrew McIntyre said: “It feels great to be working back in Derby and I am really excited at the prospect of helping to bring income into Derby Theatre as it develops its nationally unique role as a Learning Theatre”.

Gary Johnson, general manager at Derby Theatre, added: “With Andrew’s long association of working within the arts and culture scene in Derby and across the country, his appointment is a very exciting one for us.”
