Joining the team is Gavin Bevan who has recently been welcomed to the Museum as operations manager, bringing over a decade of hospitality and events experience including six years delivering conferences, private banqueting and match day hospitality at the Kia Oval.

His responsibilities will be to ensure a smooth collaboration between clients, accredited suppliers and the museum.

Susie Williamson, will join Bevan as the second operations manager, bringing with her five years of events experience within the heritage industry, having worked with the National Trust and the Royal Geographical Society. Her experience ranges from organising family-friendly events to holding high-profile, logistically complex events for the likes of BBC Newsnight, Vogue and AGA in listed buildings.

Robert Wetherell, head of venue hire added: "I’m delighted to welcome Gavin and Susie to the team at this hugely exciting time for the Natural History Museum. Expanding our expert events team is testament to the growth in our events delivery, following a wealth of notable changes to our world- class event spaces.

Hintze Hall will be offering guests a completely new experience under the life- sized Blue Whale skeleton diving from the ceiling, our smaller gallery spaces offering more intimate private dining surrounded by our incredible collections and now bespoke exhibition experiences are available to create once-in- a-lifetime memories during your special occasion."
