New Additions Join The Team

We have been doing a fair bit of reshuffling and recruiting at Exchange recently!

We are delighted to welcome Lawottim Anywar as our new Bar Manager. He’ll work  alongside gig booker, photographer and bar manager Will Benson, who joined the team last summer, working tirelessly for the venue since then, big legend!

Lawottim is a musical all rounder, having put out a solo album last year as well as drumming in Gimic, another fantastic Exchange regular (including members of Migraines and Dogeyed) and also runs Fruit Machine (an inclusive label and platform)!  You can check out Lawottim’s creative genius here.

We also really excited welcome Heidi Wort as our new Bookings Manager. 

Heidi drums in Slagheap who have played at Exchange many times, including a fab session with Exchange TV back in 2020.

If you have a show you’re burning to put on or any questions about booking throw her a message!

The Directors agreed to create a new post ‘Operations Manager’ and this has been filled by Cress Williams, who joined last year as Daytime manager (occasinally you’ll catch her here in the evening!) 

The Ops Manager will really help the HR side of Exchange, and will work closely with Heidi on developing the daytime use of the building.

When she’s not chained to the coffee machine, Cress’s creative pursuit is working on experimental film and music videos. You can check out her work here.

Come down to the venue and say hi, or get in touch with Heidi if you have any booking queries!

It feels really exciting to be welcoming new people into the Exchange family 🙂
