About David

On Thursday 7 May 2015, local people first elected David Warburton as their Member of Parliament – with a majority of 20,268 or 53% of the vote. At 18.3% this represented the largest constituency swing to the Conservative Party. David was re-elected at the 2017 general election with an increased vote share of 57% and an increased majority of 22,906.

David is a member of the European Scrutiny Committee, sits on several APPGs, including being elected chair of the British Council APPG, the APPG for Music Education and the APPG for Small and Micro Business. He chaired the British Council’s Building Resilience to Radicalisation Inquiry. He was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Department for Education in January 2018 and to the Department for International Development in September 2018.

David was educated at state grammar school, Reading School, and a co-educational comprehensive. After various jobs including shop work, cleaning, sandwich-selling and van driving, he went up to study classical music composition and piano at the Royal College of Music for his degree and masters degree, followed by doctorate studies under Sir Harrison Birtwistle at King’s College London. David won prizes including the Elgar Memorial Prize and the United Music Publishers Prize, and scholarships including the Octavia Scholarship and the Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust Scholarship.

After studying on Hoy in Orkney with Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, he taught at the Royal College of Music Junior Department while his music was performed by ensembles including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

David then taught music for five years at an inner-city mixed community school in London before founding the technology company The Music Solution Ltd in 1999, initially providing downloadable music content to mobile phones and for a variety of brands including the BBC, News International, Motorola, Nokia and MTV Europe. By 2005, TMS had become Pitch Entertainment Group, headquartered in Covent Garden, with operations in Australasia, Asia, South Africa, the US and across Europe.

With David as Executive Chairman, Pitch launched the first example of a mobile social network with ancillary content, and in 2007 was listed by the Sunday Times as the UK’s 6th fastest growing technology company, having achieved sales growth of 326% a year.

Having lived near Somerton in the 1990s, David moved back to Somerset in 2006, sold Pitch and set up two building property restoration and development companies in 2009, which focus on residential property projects in Somerset and Oxfordshire.

In 2012 David co-founded the online business MyHigh.St, allowing local independent retailers to offer their products online, organised by local high street areas.  MyHigh.St has since opened in many towns, including Castle Cary, Frome, Street, Shepton Mallet, Glastonbury, Bristol Old City and Stroud, with over 150 local independent shops taking part and partnering with the British Independent Retailers Association, the Association of Town Centre Managers, and Play.com.

David is keenly involved in charity and voluntary work. He joined the Capital Executive Committee of The Shakespeare Globe Trust in 2007, advising The Globe on its digital strategy and its expansion and capital fundraising programme.  He founded The Pulse, a charitable project to bring a full symphony orchestra to Britain’s schoolchildren.

David is an occasional volunteer organist for two Somerset churches on the Mendips and acts as a volunteer Advocate for Age UK Somerset, helping older people at home. He also volunteers as a business mentor for the Working Knowledge group, helping young people to bridge the gap between education and the workplace.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a Trustee of Somerset’s Down’s Syndrome support charity Ups and Downs and a Trustee of national youth music charity Music for Youth. In June 2018 he joined the Board of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and was appointed chair of its Development Board and for twenty years has been an active member of Mensa.

David lives near Somerton with his wife Harriet and their two young children Cecily and James.
