The appointment comes at a pivotal moment for Continuum Attractions as it further develops its Food and Beverage offering across its seven successful tourist attractions across the UK, from Coronation Street The Tour in Manchester to the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth.
Cullingworth, 31, joins the team with 15 years industry experience, including management of Rudding Park’s award winning Clocktower restaurant and most recently serving as operations director within Red Box Consultancy Services, working for a wide range of blue-chip clients within the business, hospitality, leisure and oil and gas industries.
The new senior position will bolster the development of Continuum Attractions’ current Food and Beverage offering, whilst playing an instrumental role in new attractions set to be announced in the future. The attractions operator is currently investing £500,000 to develop its Edinburgh experience The Real Mary King’s Close, which will include the addition of a new 40-seater café and a unique corporate venue space.
Oli Cullingworth, Group Food and Beverage Manager at Continuum Attractions commented: “I’m delighted to join the team at Continuum Attractions at such an exciting time for the business. I look forward to developing our attractions’ unique food and beverage experiences, whilst working with the executive management team to deliver new projects.”
Kev Smith, Group Attractions Director at Continuum Attractions said: “With developments across our existing attractions and a number of new projects in the pipeline, we recognised the need to add a dedicated Food and Beverage manager to our management team. We’re confident Oli will be a valuable asset to the group with his varied operational and consultancy background.”
