We’re singing for England !

The England Footballers hosted their first ever Lions & Roses Charity Dinner at The Brewery on Sunday 26th February.
Guests included former England players Gary Neville and Denis Wise as well as JLS, Ray Winstone and Dragons Den Theo Paphitis. The auction raised an estimated £250,000 for the England Footballer Foundations charity partners.
The evening which was hosted by Clive Tyldesley, Ben Shepard and Gabby Roslin and included performances from Ellie Golding and Tinie Tempah and an impromptu performance by JLS. 
Speaking at the event Ashley Cole said: “Tinie Tempah was brilliant, it was amazing to see everyone here supporting this event as it is the first time we have organised something like this.”
The auction which included a world exclusive Bentley and lunch with Ellie Goulding saw Ashley Cole bidding against Ray Winstone.
Joe Hart said: “It has been a fantastic evening, it’s great to see everyone support these charities. We want to thank everyone involved in making Lions & Roses happen and for making it such a successful night.”
Simon Brown, Ambassador for Help For Heroes added: “I don’t think people really appreciate how much it means to charities like Help For Heroes to have the support of the England footballers. We cannot thank the players enough for what they have done, not only through donating their match fees but also helping to raise awareness. ”
Stephanie Moore MBE, Bobby Moore Foundation said; “It has been a wonderful evening. An event like this helps raise awareness for all the charities involved and we really appreciate all the support that everyone has given us.”
To date the England team have raised over £2.2 million for charities including Together for short lives (formerly known as Children’s Hospices UK), WellChild, the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK and the Professional Footballers Association charity initiatives. Their current charity partners are Help for Heroes and Cancer Research UK as well their own Outreach programme.

The Brewery has expertise in hosting events like these, here’s how we can help as a venue for your charity event.

Event Top 20 Venues – Consistency Is Key

Last week we were once again voted into the Event Magazine Top 20 Venues in the UK.

We’re incredibly proud to be once again named in the illustrious list, but following an office deduction session, in the style of Sherlock Holmes, we think we are also the only venue to be named in every single list since it began. 

We work hard to maintain our standards at the very peak of the event industry and it is extremely rewarding to be consistently recognised for this.


We’re The Venue Event Team Of The Year !

On Friday 18th November, a selection of The Brewery’s finest set sail for the Eventia Awards at The Hilton Park Lane in search of the coveted Eventia Event Team of The Year Award. Our entry had made it through the stringent judging process to be one of the 4 nominees on the evening.

The competition was extremely tough with the other nominees in the category being Lords, The Natural History Museum and The Saatchi Gallery. However we prevailed by being able to demonstrate the number of events our team have organised and managed over the last year and how the team has performed in making all of these events successful.

We have been very lucky in the last year to have hosted some amazing events; the three highlighted in this entry were the Football League Awards, Carsonified FOWD and Bibendum EC1 which were all amazing events but very different showing the flexibility of the team to manage a variety of events to an extremely high standard.

We are very proud to have been recognised for all the hard work that we have put into all the events hosted here in the last year and can’t wait to continue this awards winning ethos.
