Before we got into this journalism racket, we spent many-a-year contained in meeting rooms offering a natural light count of zero, with nothing more than roller drawers for inspiration. Raise the venue stakes for your next away day, conference or soiree with something entirely different.
Edgbaston Stadium's got a big ol' range of suites and conferencing facilities, with spaces ranging from executive boxes for up to 20 delegates (pictured below) to the exhibition hall, which has space for up to 800. On-site car parking comes as standard and getting out of the office is really rather nice for all involved.
The venue — which includes views of both the iconic pitch and Birmingham skyline — took home the Midlands Food, Drink and Hospitality award for best venue last year, which had a lot to do with exec head chef, Dave Hill. Serving up fine dining style fare, Dave's focus in on seasonal, local produce, with the team covering everything from working breakfasts to fully loaded banquets.

Christmas comes but once a year. And as that time is precisely the same for every single person ever, getting ahead on bookings is exactly where you want to be.
This year, Edgbaston Stadium's covering off the 80s, 90s and 00s in terms of musical D-I-S-C-O offering. Expect a three-courser, plus face painting and a photo booth mirror, with shared parties available on December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 21 and 22. Because it would be pretty weird if they'd picked a different month. It's £42.95 per human person. And non-humans are not permitted. Here's all the deets.
