Villa Park voted 'Best Venue'

Villa Park is the top venue in the region – and that’s official.

The prestigious ground was named ‘Best Venue’ at the ‘Midlands Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards’.

They were held at Edgbaston Stadium this week.

They beat off competition from Birmingham Museum, Dallas Burston Polo Club, Molineux Stadium and St Johns Hotel for the prize.

“Villa Park is an amazing venue and it was fantastic to see it recognised this week.” – Laura Johns

The gala event saw a host of awards handed out, with ‘Best Venue’ one of the most-eagerly anticipated on the evening.

It’s a real acknowledgement of the impressive work that’s been going on behind-the-scenes alongside their partner Levy UK to ensure Villa Park is a destination that delivers.

their main suites and lounges, used on both matchday and non-matchday, all received extensive makeovers over the past year – merging modern feel and classic character – while they also launched the high premium offering known as the ‘Directors Club’.

The ‘Directors Club’ is designed for premium hospitality and events, with a contemporary and luxurious new design – and an ability to cater for groups, smaller meetings and private dining.

Laura Johns, Head of Sales for Conferences and Events, said: “We were thrilled to pick up the award on the night.

“Villa Park is an amazing venue – it has both exemplary history and stunning style – and it was fantastic to see it recognised this week.

“It’s been a tremendous year following the partnership with Levy UK.

“We’re always so enthusiastic and driven to deliver high-quality conferences and events here at Aston Villa – and to be able to do that at a venue such as Villa Park is something we never take for granted. It’s a real delight and we are thrilled with this latest recognition.”
