Mark Cribb
Owner, future gazer

10 years ago Fee and I first opened the doors to the Urban Beach Hotel. I now spend most of my time in the future looking for new exciting things to give some Urban Guild love to.

Chris Warwick
Head of Operations, connoisseur, dapper chap

I keep Mark’s FUTURE aspirations loosely in some sort of real world, I work in the NOW, zipping between venues, making sure every day we HUG 100s of people. Then I have a whisky.

Simon Eaton
Manager, smiler, plate spinner

Born in Poole, I went on an adventure to London for 10 years and came back home to sand in between my toes and the warmth of a small friendly restauranteur called Mark Cribb. I bought a bike and a pair of flip flops. The rest is Urban history.

Kay Tanner
Baker, runner, dawn treader

I get to work as the sun peeks its head above the horizon. Naomi and I are busy baking lovely muffins, flapjacks, cakes, granola, brownies, gluten free bread, gingerbread people while most people are still snoring.

Helen McCombie
Events magician

My Urban life started at Urban Beach for eight years, two as general manager. Then I went and travelled for a bit, before coming back to organise events at Urban Reef.

Matt Lawrence
Head of shouting

I came to Bournemouth to study marketing, met my wife Vicky at Uni and set up home here 20 years ago. I love my job, promoting the Urban venues and dressing up like a wally.

Jasper
Hugable, wagging, friend

Meet Jasper, we think he’s the duck’s nuts. If you meet him at one of our establishments be sure to say hello. He’s also known for giving great hugs – well OK, great licks.
