Victoria Robinson was appointed as the first female Chief Executive of The Met in December 2014 and led the £4.6million capital project and transformation of the organisation in 2016.

Now a female-led organisation, The Met exists to inspire excellence in music and creativity, enhance the quality of living and working in Bury and Greater Manchester by engaging communities with brilliant live experiences.

During lockdown, The Met was at the forefront of streaming activity in its partnership with GMCA and United We Stream.

Victoria has worked in music and the arts for over 25 years and has been passionate about live music for even longer.

She started out writing about her native North East live music scene, before leading on gig and club promotions at the legendary Leadmill in Sheffield. After completing an MA in Public Relations at Manchester Metropolitan University, Victoria worked in commercial PR before returning to music in 2004.
