Helen Beresford-Boyse

Event Sales & Operations Manager
01904 685751

As is true of many members of the events team, a career in events was always on the cards for Helen. Following a degree in International Hospitality Management at Leeds Beckett University and event roles in hotels, Helen joined the museum as Event Sales Executive and has since been promoted to Manager. Her favourite space is the Royal Platform—in particular, Queen Victoria’s personal carriage.

Chris Hanley

Events Manager North
0161 606 0147

With over 20 years in the event industry, four of which he's spent at the Science Museum Group, there’s not much Chris doesn’t know about running events, particularly in unique venues. The thrill of a non-negotiable deadline and the pressure that it brings is what drives Chris and his teams to deliver excellent events across all three northern sites in the Group.
