A Focus on a Favourite Birmingham Venue – Edgbaston Cricket Club

As an Event Management Company, we’ve lucky enough to work at some great sporting venues and have developed great relationships with the venue and their team. We’d like to review another venue we are missing during lockdown and that’s the awesome Edgbaston Stadium.

Edgbaston Cricket Club offers a range of inspiring meeting spaces, engaging delegates from the moment they arrive to one of UK’s leading sporting venues. Their dedicated team are always on-hand to help plan your meeting and ensure it runs as smoothly as possible. The venue offers great options for holding large and small events across the site. Let’s discover some of our favourite events that we have worked on here.

Room with a Stunning View

Named after West Indies legend Brian Lara’s record-breaking unbeaten 501 for Warwickshire in 1994, the new 501* brings a new sophisticated, stylish, and modern appeal to the facilities at Edgbaston.

The innovative design of the room encapsulates Lara’s achievement with a tiled wall providing a ball-by-ball account of the innings and a plaque to greet you upon entering, dedicated to the events at Edgbaston on 6 June, 1994.

We share some of our most favourite events at the venue over the years which gives you great ideas of how versatile the venue is for a range of events and just why we’ve chosen to rave about it!

Wild West Theme for Properties for Kids

One of our most memorable and experiential events created at Edgbaston Cricket Club was a hoedown for Birmingham Children’s Charity ‘Property for Kids’. This Wild West Themed Showdown was on an epic scale with the exhibition hall full transformed with wild west themed props, cactus plants, wild west backdrops and other cowboy props.

The evening was full of action with a cowboy cabaret , can-can dancers and other wild west actors, Rodeo Bull, Shoot Out Games as well as Wild West Photobooths! What a night thrilling night with over £40k raised! 

 

Christmas Décor – Dancing through the Decades  

Eventologists transformed the Exhibition Hall during the month of December for the annual joiner parties which are by far one of the most popular parties to attend in Birmingham. From the moment that guests walk in, they were transported through musical decades with funky 70’s disco props, 80’s props and 90’s décor.

This theme was colourful and set the scene for the Smash Hits theme. Walls in colourful draping, music posters, slinky ceilings, and cool selfie spots for a pic with your besties. This retro theme is fun and hugely immersive as everyone manages to get into the groove when they hear their favourite tracks!

Christmas Décor – Glam and Glitz

We have designed another glamorous joiner Christmas party at Edgbaston Stadium Exhibition Hall. This time the theme was Glitz and Glam – a popular dress up theme for Christmas Events. It’s colours reminded us of the silver screen with blacks, silver and white as the base colour. A great alternative idea to an Oscars Themed Event or a Hollywood Theme Corporate Event.

Our ideas for this staff party included Hollywood poster props, glitzy Hollywood entrance as well as an array of Hollywood Theme decor as well as a magical glittery ceiling with crystal chandeliers and mirror balls. Super chic and sexy, this alternative Oscar Themed Party is always popular at Christmas or for Awards Dinners as it’s such a celebratory theme. We have so many Oscar Themed/Hollywood Themed Décor ideas to inspire you, so you can be guaranteed that no one event will be the same!

  • We have worked with Eventologists for the a couple of years now and can't fault them from start to finish the whole process is very seamless and the stuff they do is incredible! We have themed evenings and they always come up with some fab ideas that help to emphasise the theme and bring it to life. Our events have conference sessions in the venue during the day and we transform them for our awards in the evening and Eventologists always completely transform the space for the evening so that it feels like you're in a completely different space which makes it all feel so much more special and a real celebration and by the time morning arrives its all completely cleared as if by magic!

  • Rita has been an absolute pleasure to work with; she listened to our ideas and vision and then totally ran with it and created something better than we could have ever imagined! On the event day, Rita and her team swooped in and decorated our venue in record time. Rita and the team were professional and efficient. We look forward to working with Eventologists again next year!

  • We’ve used the services of Eventologists on numerous occasions and their expertise is priceless. Great service as always from Rita and her team who are always full of ideas and ways to make your event stand out. We’ve hired sets for Moulin Rouge, Great Gatsby, Hollywood and Glitz and Glam plus they created a wonderful set for a festival including tress with festoon and flags. Highly recommended and great to work with.
