Magna Science Adventure Centre has appointed a new general manager.

John Silker moves to the tourist attraction from Manchester United where he was the manager of the VIP suite at Old Trafford.

John, who has 36 years experience in the leisure industry, says he is passionate about building on the success of Magna.

He said: “What we have at Magna is unique in terms of the building. We can do so much other venues can’t, particularly because of the space inside.”

“It’s almost like having a blank canvas. It is an exciting time to be taking over.”

Magna hit the headlines recently when Rotherham Council agreed a £250,000 loan to the trust.
