Speaking of his new role, Andy said:
“I’m delighted to be part of the Eureka! team and to support them creating something that will help inspire many thousands of children and families every year. Eureka! Science + Discovery has been eight years in the making and will be a transformative addition to Merseyside’s leisure and tourism offer.
