13 December - 1 January

Image: Darts at the Ally Pally

Turkey, carols, crackers, long forgotten relatives and the darts at Ally Pally – it’s what Christmas is all about.

The William Hill World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace has become a Christmas institution – a heady mix of world-class darts, fancy dress and an atmosphere that has to be experienced to be believed. A sell-out each and every year - there’s a reason why so many come back again and again.

The Championship will create the first World Champion of 2020 as it draws to a close on New Year’s Day and the coveted Sid Waddell trophy is won.



Her Majesty's Theatre London

Opening in 1986 at Her Majesty’s Theatre and subsequently Broadway, The Phantom of the Opera has gone on to break records. It’s the longest running show in Broadway and the second-longest running musical in the West End (third longest running show overall) – it’s been seen by over 140 million people world-wide and has won over 70 major awards.

If you haven’t seen it – now’s your opportunity.

EMG Events can provide packages for Phantom and all of the other major West End shows including Only Fools and Horses, Tina The Musical, Mamma Mia, School of Rock, Wicked & Les Misérables, from tickets to fully bespoke packages including transport, accommodation and dining.



11 October 2019

Image: Rugby Speaker of the Year

Given all the excitement surrounding football and cricket this year, you might’ve forgotten that there’s another World Cup to come.

The World Cup in Japan makes this years Rugby Speaker of the Year lunch just that little zestier. Taking place the day before England play their last pool game against France, the lunch, at the Brewery in London, will feature three English World Cup veterans – James Haskell, Nick Easter and Simon Shaw – as well as special guest Francois Pienaar. For an afternoon of rugby fueled entertainment there is little to equal this.

A sell out every year, the added bonus of a Rugby World Cup this year will make it a must attend event for all with a passion for rugby.

If your interests lie elsewhere - don't despair, we also offer a wide range of other lunches and dinners, please see our Special Events page for more details.



18-20 October 2019

Image: Motorsport - Superbikes

You haven’t seen motorsport until you’ve seen Superbikes. For the sheer spectacle, excitement and wheel to wheel competition there’s little to compare.

This October, Brands Hatch hosts the finale of 2019 Bennetts British Superbike Championship on the world-famous Grand Prix circuit with three races across the weekend - one on Saturday, two on Sunday - for what promises to be one of the most exciting events of the season.

EMG Events can provide hospitality for this (as well as for everything else at Brands Hatch) at two great facilities – the Motorsport Vision Centre and the Brabham Stewart Suites.

Image: Venues with a difference

If you’ve ever organised a party, you’ll know how hard it is to find the right venue - a venue that has the capacity you need, a venue which can supply catering, a venue that your guests will want to experience.

Fear not – EMG Events can help. We are specialists in event management and a large part of that is finding the right venue for your event – small or large, interesting or unusual.

For example, Coq d’Argent – set in the heart of the City with heated roof top terraces, panoramic views and excellent cuisine – it is an excellent and flexible venue, ideal for parties, Christmas celebrations, product launches and just about anything.

1 December 2020

Image: F1 Grand Prix Abu Dhabi

The last race of the season – the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix. Will the championship go down to the line, or will Hamilton use this Grand Prix to celebrate his sixth World Championship and go one behind the great Schumacher.

A purpose-built Grand Prix circuit designed from the outset to provide the most thrilling racing there is – dominated by its 1.2km straight set between two slow speed corners which see the cars push themselves to their absolute limits with plenty of overtaking opportunities – thrilling racing at its best.

EMG Events has a fantastic package for this Grand Prix, with a supreme choice of hospitality on the track, from the famed Paddock Club and Parc Fermé Racing Club to glass fronted and balcony suites. This package includes three nights’ accommodation in Abu Dhabi – and aside from the race, there is plenty to see and do.

EMG Events also provide hospitality for all the other F1 races as well (for example Spa, Monza, Singapore, Austin etc.). Interested? Click for more, or get in touch.

What you say


Thanks for organising another event for us and the hotel beforehand at Wimbledon was lovely with excellent service and food.

The seats in centre court were perfect for watching the Tennis and staying out of the sun.
