Royal Ascot is the unmissable highlight of the British summer social and sporting season. A unique combination of world-class racing, fashion, pageantry, tradition and the finest hospitality available – no wonder it’s a perennial favourite.

EMG Events has a fantastic selection of hospitality for Royal Ascot 2020 for a wide range of budgets and expectations, from the sophistication of the Furlong Restaurant, next to the Grandstand and overlooking the winning post to the livelier atmosphere of the Ascot Village and a range of options in-between.

There’s some tasty European football action coming up this season, with Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City and Tottenham in action in the Champions League and Arsenal and Man United in the Europa League (the pool draws have just been announced).

If you’re interested in watching the highest quality football in the crucible of European competition – EMG Events can help you get your fill. We can provide hospitality packages for all European and domestic footy, click the link below for more.

If you’re feeling really confident, we can even organise long weekends in Istanbul and Gdańsk next summer – to beat the rush.



1 - 4 July 2020

Image: Henley Royal Regatta 2020

Think of a summer garden party by the Thames in a quintessentially English setting, think excellent hospitality, think the gentle sounds of live Jazz as a background. Throw in some world-class rowing and you have the Henley Royal Regatta.

Henley is the oldest and most famous regatta in the world. It has become a unique sporting and social highlight of the English summer.

Once again, EMG Events is pleased to be able to offer one of the best hospitality packages for the Henley Royal Regatta – the Riverside Enclosure. Click the link for more or get in touch.



Apollo Victoria Theatre

Winner of over 100 major awards, the 9th longest running musical in London, seen by over ten million people in London alone – Wicked is one of the must-see shows in the West End.

As the Guardian succinctly put it: "Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes, Wicked is an absolute blast".

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

EMG Events can provide packages for Wicked and all of the other major West End shows, from tickets to fully bespoke packages including transport, accommodation and dining.



6 & 13 December 2019

Two great festive lunches – the Sportsman Comedy Christmas Lunch part 1 and Part 2. Both at the Brewery in central London and absolutely ideal for entertaining clients and rewarding staff.

Part 1 on the 6th December features Harry and Jamie Redknapp, whilst Part 2 features Kevin Pietersen and Eddie Jones – both MC’d by the irrefutable David Flatman.

These always sell out and are full of festive fun and entertainment – an excellent experience and excellent value for money.

If you can’t make these, EMG Events have a wide range of other sporting & comedy lunches & dinners across the UK. From the PGA Annual Lunch in Glasgow, the PFA Lunch in Leeds to the Famous Manchester Christmas Cracker.

In a word – "amazing". Quite rightly hailed as the "world’s best driving event".

Entertain your guests to the one of the most exhilarating and memorable days of their lives with the most authentic motorsport experience anywhere.

And it’s not only excellence to detail on the track, the hospitality off the track is just as good – making every part of the day simply excellent.

What you say


Hi Liz,
Just wanted to drop you a line to say what a really great event the Festival of Speed is and the Library Lawn hospitality was superb. We could not fault the quality of the food and there was so much choice and plenty of everything.

The service all day was friendly and they even sorted me out with a bite cream when I was stung. Having been to Epsom Derby, this hospitality was a huge improvement and great value.

A. Lenton, Brymec
