When you think of Twickenham Stadium, rugby is probably the first thing that springs to mind. However Twickenham offers far more than originally meets the eye. The stadium features 25 dedicated event spaces, including a conference centre featuring the Rose Suite, which accommodates up to 1200 guests (theatre style); the Live Room, a large production space with direct vehicle access; and several syndicate spaces each with the capacity to hold up to 350 delegates and over 150 pitch-facing boxes available for small, short-lead meetings.
In 2016, on the 352 days when the stadium isn’t hosting a game, it will become a hub for a multitude of events including conferences, exhibitions, private dinners, Christmas parties … even weddings. With the England Changing Rooms and Player’s Tunnel available for drinks receptions and dinners and the ability for guests to mingle pitch-side for a BBQ, Twickenham can provide a truly inspirational backdrop for any event.
Each of the spaces in the stadium reflect a different personality, from the Twickenham Cellar which offers a more medieval atmosphere featuring candelabras, vintage wines, ports and regal style furnishings − perfect for private dining, to the Live Room offering retractable tiered seating, built-in lighting, HD projector and screen − ideal for product launches, productions and conferences.
The RFU’s five key values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship are adopted across the entire organisation, making Twickenham a great venue to help to instil and inspire teamwork and dedication. Naturally, team building becomes a feature of many events held at the Stadium, with the HAKA as one of the most popular teambuilding packages at the venue.
Serviced by sporting venue caterer Levy Restaurants, the venue boasts award winning food and beverage services. The chef’s expertise and the commitment to customer service offer planners complete flexibility when it comes to arranging events to achieve the best possible outcomes. Each event at Twickenham is allocated a dedicated event coordinator for the run up to the event and event manager on hand on the day of the event, helping ensure the programme runs completely to plan.
The stadium also has the fantastic benefit of 2000 complimentary onsite car parking spaces, an onsite 4* Marriott Hotel with 156 bedrooms including six pitch-side suites and a Virgin Active Club.
So the next time you think of Twickenham Stadium, remember … it could be the next inspiring destination for your conferences and events.
