Lancashire CCC Launch New Gold Marquee

Golden Marquee at Old Trafford



This week, Lancashire County Cricket Club (LCCC) officially launched its new “Gold Marquee” (pictured above, courtesy Lancashire CCC) at Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

This facility is unique to Manchester, in fact to the North West, as it is a permanent structure that caters comfortably for 700 seated guests enjoying a sit down dinner or up to 1500 people seated for a Conference.

It has its own stylish Reception area, which itself is impressive, and a bespoke kitchen that can produce anything from a simple buffet to a grand 5-couse dinner.

This multi-purpose facility provides the perfect space for weddings, banqueting, conferences, dinner dances, award ceremonies, exhibitions or any celebration our client’s desire.

Comfort was a priority when designing this 2200sq metre structure, with luxury internal cloakroom facilities and heating units to regulate the temperature during the winter months.

There are many elements of this Gold Marquee to be impressed by, but perhaps a lasting impression will be made by the permanent star cloth on the ceiling and the warmth of the hospitality staff.

Lancashire is now also able to offer the opportunity for Asian and Kosher events on a Sunday through our partners, Payal Catering and Celia Clyne Catering.

The Gold Marquee was designed to not only offer clients a first-class events venue, but to replace existing facilities at the ground whist the new £12m Conference and Events Centre is being built.  Construction on this new facility starts next month and is due for completion in May 2010.

Speaking at Thursday’s launch, LCCC Commercial Director Geoff Durbin said; “Lancashire has a widespread reputation for delivering high quality events within its facilities here at Old Trafford. Work will commence next month on our new £12m Conference and Events Centre that will be one of the finest this country has ever seen. In the meantime, and at great expense, we have built this incredible Gold Marquee so Lancashire can continue to provide catering and events excellence to not only its existing client base, but to those looking to add the wow factor to their event.”
