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 Them
ed 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 Decor – 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 them
e. 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 glamourous 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 ma
ny Oscar Themed/Hollywood Themed Décor ideas to inspire you, so you can be guaranteed that no one event will be the same!
Let the Midas touch come your way with a Gold Themed Party!
Turn your event up a notch with a sparkling Gold Themed Event, which is sure to charm and wow all your guests.
Here at Eventologists’ we want to make sure that every person has their chance to shine, and what can be a better opportunity to do so than a grandiose themed party inspired by the richest colour there is?

- Golden table centrepieces, which include vases full of flowers, modern and elegant horns, feathers, golden trees with shiny lights.
- Golden chandeliers and candelabra to reflect the shine of the lights that lit the room.
- Giant vases full of gold foliage to make every corner of the venue as splendid as the rest.
To enhance the décor of the venue and make the evening a memorable one, add some live entertainment, such as alluring dancers dressed in gold costumes with feather hats, stilt entertainers or even contortionist artists with performances that will leave your guests feeling like they just rendezvoused at the most glamourous, full of riches and eccentricities palace!
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!

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.
