About Us

Meet Dave – Senior Usher

“Our role is to make sure that from the moment a visitor walks through the door until the moment they leave we are there to make their visit a great one.”

Although Dave has trained as an astrophysicist, he made the switch to hospitality and has a wealth of experience, enjoying 20 years in the South West of England, managing a club with over 500 members.

Dave joined The Brunton in 2013 and enjoys supporting the arts and the variety that comes with his role, meeting new people every day and delivering an experience that makes them want to return.

“Working at The Brunton is so different every day. We can be hosting a wedding ensuring guests have a day to remember, a conference, a dance show, educational events, a live band, live theatre, a screening from London and 100 other things I have forgotten!”

Whilst the curtain is down for now, Dave, his Front of House team and many other colleagues are working hard to ensure that everything is ready and waiting for the day that The Brunton can reopen its doors.

Whilst The Brunton always takes measures to ensure the health and safety of staff, visitors and audiences, additional measures will be in place to ensure that everyone can return to a welcoming and safe environment.

 Some of these measures include hand sanitising stations, perspex screens, contactless payments and the safe management of the public in The Brunton.

An avid follower of football and cricket, especially Manchester United and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, Dave is also familiar to many of The Brunton’s community from his other role as the starter at the world famous Musselburgh Links Old Golf Course. A busy man indeed!
