He said: “I’m delighted to be joining Magna, and it’s a really exciting time to be coming on board.

“There is a lot of untapped potential on the commercial front and we are hoping to develop new partnerships which benefit the organisation.”

It also has more than 100 hands-on exhibits designed to explore the four elements of air, water, earth and fire.
