Matthew Burge



Matthew was born in London. After attending his first symphony as a child (Dvorak’s New World at Bournemouth Winter Gardens), Matthew joined his school orchestra and has continued to enjoy playing all kinds of music

on the flute ever since.

Matthew’s early education was at Bryanston School, Blandford Forum, Dorset, then at Hammersmith & West London College. He went on to take a degree at the University of Bristol in Humanities (English Literature & Philosophy), and then a part-MA in professional broadcasting practice at the University of Teesside.

His early career was in the management of live theatre and dance, and he is now a freelance media professional. He has worked with many  music groups, including those in the charity and voluntary sectors.

His achievements include drama and documentary work for BBC Television and feature film work for the British Film Institute. He is an award-winning director for Channel Four Television.

Matthew now lives in South Shields and runs his own company, Burge Surtees Associates Limited, Tyne & Wear, UK, focussing on management of creative projects, digital media, and evaluation of social impact.
