Ghostwriter announces new appointment to bolster its expanding venue and events portfolio

Ghostwriter Consultancy & Events are delighted to announce the appointment of a General Venue Business Manager to support the company’s growth of its venue partnerships, events and consultancy business.

Ade Dovey has been appointed as General Venue Business Manager with direct responsibility for Marble Factory (1,350) in Bristol and to support the company’s venue estate and wider projects.


Director of Events Richard Maides said, “We are delighted to announce that Ade Dovey will be joining us at Ghostwriter. He brings considerable experience from his previous key operational and programming roles in the industry. Being a respected promoter and a first-class creative venue manager Ade is a welcome addition to our team. His success evolving unique venue spaces such as The Deaf Institute, Gorilla and The Albert Hall in Manchester demonstrated to us that he was the perfect fit for our aims in Bristol.

Dovey will lead on the Marble Factory whilst also contributing to the wider business.

The Marble Factory has enjoyed significant success since the inception of our partnership with the venue owners in 2020, quickly establishing itself as a regular stop off on the UK touring circuit. Moving forward our focus is to diversify the venue’s programme with exciting new events and client partnerships, whilst continuing to improve our support for promoters and artists who choose to utilise the venue.

Following significant investment in the venue with enhanced production and backstage facilities we will now adopt a flexible approach in terms of rentals and use of space. We believe that the appointment of Ade will help us move the business forward in a number of areas.”
