Twickenham prepares to unveil new east stand to the industry
Twickenham Stadium is set to unveil its new East Stand redevelopment to more than 250 leading event industry figures. The launch, which will take place on Thursday 22nd November, will offer attendees the chance to explore all six floors of creative event space for the first time.
Twickenham's Head of Business Development, Johanna Byrane and Catering and Conference and Events Director Nils Braude will both be on hand to provide insight into the project and explain how it is set to revolutionize their clients' events.
During the evening, guests will be able to sample some of the new dishes created by Executive Head Chef, Thomas Rhodes, while also experiencing how the stand's new and versatile spaces can play host to a range of differing events.
"We've talked in depth about how the redeveloped venue will encourage the industry to think differently and we're extremely excited to finally show you how. This project has been many years in the making and aims to take Twickenham Stadium to the next level of corporate entertaining. We hope that our guests will be inspired by the possibilities," said Braude.
The new East Stand represents a multi-million pound redevelopment at the home of England Rugby, and offers space that not only provides new-found match day hospitality options, but also unexpected and dynamic settings that go far beyond a simple conference or banqueting space.
The East Stand's contemporary offering will provide clients with a plethora of options, each with a different look, feel and ambience. Among Twickenham's most surprising and inspiring new venues is The East Wing, which offers a contemporary space reminiscent of a private members club, demonstrating sophistication without stuffiness. Alongside four private terraces with both pitch-side views and outdoor access, it has four individual private dining areas that can accommodate up to 30 guests for a relaxed lounge environment or formal private table setting and 800 covers for the whole restaurant.
Another exciting addition to Twickenham's portfolio is The Gate, which offers a modern, simple, but exquisite chop-house style restaurant, complete with low lighting and open brickwork. The space offers a dedicated meat store and separate wine room.
In total the venue will be unveiling over 6,700sqm of contemporary event space and the team is excited to work with clients on new and exciting concepts. The space will be available for hire from December.
