Abby Hanns
Christmas Fairy

I can make all of your Christmas wishes come true when you’re booking a party this festive season – especially if it involves wine.

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
Managing Director

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

Head of Hugs

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.

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.

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.
