Twickenham event sales get lift

Twickenham Experience has reported a 20% year-on-year increase in event sales at the venue during  2014-2015, compared with the same period the previous year.

The venue, a joint venture between the Rugby Football Union and the Compass Group catering firm, posted a profit of £10,174,000 on a turnover of £30,750,000 in the year ending June 2014, according the latest documents filed at Companies House.

A spokeswoman for the venue said its venue team has reported particular success with corporate events and Christmas party bookings during the festive season in 2014, including a 307% year-on-year increase in Christmas joiner party bookings in 2014 compared with the previous year.

Head of conference and events sales, James Lee, said: “We’re delighted to have seen such fantastic results here at Twickenham over the past 12 months. As the home of England Rugby, we have a brilliant reputation for corporate events and it’s great to see that our Christmas party offering is becoming increasingly popular each year.

“The profits generated from conferences and events are reinvested back into grassroots rugby, so it’s really nice for us to know that we’re making a difference and giving something back to the community. We have a fantastic team here at Twickenham, everyone is dedicated to driving new business forward and we look forward to building on the success and excitement following this year’s tournament.”
