Production Director

Andy Batty

Andy has been with UK Productions since its very first tour of Barnum in 1995.

A graduate in mathematics from Surrey University, where he spent two years as sabbatical Arts/Entertainment’s Officer, Andy moved straight to the newly formed promotion company ‘Flying Music’. There he stayed for nearly eight years as resident Production/Company Manager whilst the company grew into one of the largest concert promoters in the UK. During this time Andy worked with a wide range of artists including Franki Valli, Marti Webb, Elaine Page, Gary Numan, The Monkees, Smokey Robinson, and Neil Sedaka. It was while touring with Flying Music that he first met Martin Dodd in his role as a theatre manager.

Following a spell as a freelance production manager during which time Andy worked for such artists as Joe Longthorne and Shakin’ Stevens both in the UK and overseas, he renewed his contact with Martin at the fledgling UK Productions and has been in charge of their busy and expanding production department ever since.
