This month, Lord's reopens Harris Garden, 65 Queen's Gate launches focus group package and Woodland Grange joins IACC elite. 

Lord’s reopens Harris Garden following restoration

Lord’s Cricket Ground has relaunched its historic Harris Garden, situated behind the world-famous Lord’s Pavilion.

This charming rose garden is now available for outdoor receptions and incentive pursuits such as croquet, lawn bowls or alfresco meetings. 

The Harris Garden can cater for up to 300 guests, with options of packages and upgrades available on request. 

Nick Kenton, head of sales (Meetings, Events and Hospitality) at Lord’s said: “We’re delighted to offer the Harris Garden following renovation work that has further enhanced its appeal. Attention to detail is something on which the team at Lord’s prides itself, and the sympathetic restoration work to the garden truly encapsulates this.”

Scout Association’s blank canvas venue launches meetings package

65 Queen’s Gate has launched a fully-inclusive package aimed at focus groups and workshops.

The central London venue, owned by the Scout Association, features Nordic minimalism and functionality of both the interior space and outdoor terracing. It provides planners with an understated ‘blank canvas’ onto which they can tailor their own event styling, for up to 300 guests.

The ‘Focus Groups’ package includes refreshments, AV and room hire for £185. All income generated by the package goes back into UK scouting.

Woodland Grange joins IACC elite

EEF Venues’ Woodland Grange property in Leamington Spa has achieved IACC certification and become a member of the globally respected meetings and events association.

IACC has 300 members in 26 countries across the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia & Australia Pacific. To achieve IACC certification, venue members must demonstrate a commitment to the highest standards in design, facilities, services, technology and sustainability. 

IACC members understand the importance of each of these elements in a successful meeting – and those who use IACC venues expect excellence. This exclusiveness makes IACC’s members part of an elite group representing the most innovative, forward-thinking and results-driven meeting venues in the world.

Mark Cooper, IACC’s CEO said: “EEF Venues has demonstrated unequivocally that it is totally committed to delivering the IACC Meetings Experience and I am confident it will be a valuable member of the association. By conforming to our global quality standards, Woodland Grange has become a venue that meeting planners can confidently trust to look after their meeting.”
