Hamilton – six times world champion. Now with six wins at Silverstone already under his belt (more than any other driver), a victory here will be a keystone in his challenge to claim a record equaling seventh title – it’s going to be exciting.

Silverstone is synonymous with motorsport in the UK, with a tradition of hosting the British Grand Prix back to 1948. It’s been the scene of many sporting triumphs and the atmosphere and excitement of the race is hard to equal.

EMG Events have two great options for next years British Grand Prix. Option 1, which can include accommodation, features premium hospitality at Brooklands, VIP Club and the famed Paddock Club. Whilst Option 2 provides a range of premium hospitality experiences.

Part 2 of the excellent Sportsman Comedy Christmas Lunches at the Brewery in central London.

Featuring cricketing legend Kevin Pietersen and World Cup finals rugby coach – Eddie Jones.

It’s a fantastic event, full of festive cheer, fun and games – excellent for clients and colleagues alike. But to be honest, just worth it to hear Eddie Jones and the inside line from Japan alone.

Cheltenham Festival

Often referred to the as the Olympic Games of National Hunt Racing – the Cheltenham Festival is the pinnacle of the jump race calendar culminating in the Gold Cup on the Friday.

Attracting up to 72,000 visitors per day, the Cheltenham Festival creates a unique and exhilarating atmosphere that few other sporting events can capture making it a must-do event on the calendar.

Luckily, EMG Events has an excellent range of hospitality options for 2020’s Cheltenham Festival including the Northern Belle – a historic Pullman train - on Gold Cup day allowing for style and comfort on the journey as well as the excitement of the racing itself.



9 - 12 July 2020

Image: Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is motorsport’s ultimate garden party.

Held the week before the British Grand Prix (so that the F1 teams can attend – six teams attended last year) this unique event brings together an impossibly heady mix of cars, stars and motorsport legends to create the largest car culture event in the world.

All set within the immaculate grounds of Goodwood House in Sussex. Who could ask for more?

Looking at building your team but don’t know where to start?

Look no further! EMG Events have a huge amount of experience in developing team building events from small to large, long and short.

Take for example Team Apprentice – based on a TV show that might have a similar sounding name – the team building event is not only great fun, but develops teamwork, communication and time management skills as well as being highly motivational.

The event can be tailored to your needs and objectives making it exceptionally effective – and one of most successful events. Get in touch to find out more…



1 February - 14 March 2020

Image: Guinness 6 Nations

England, Ireland and Wales all have a point to prove, and Scotland need a strong comeback - the Guinness 6 Nations next year is literally going to be explosive.

Scotland, Calcutta Cup holders, play England and France at home – how much do England want that cup back, and how hard will Scotland fight for it? Whilst Wales play Italy, France and Scotland at home.

And England, well they play Italy away in Rome on the final weekend. Could that be a grand slam decider – if so – what a weekend that will be.

As always, EMG Events have you covered, click the links below for more, or get in touch.



4 - 8 June 2020

After such a bumper year of cricket – with England being crowned the World Champions as well as an Ashes series (we won’t talk about that too much), we’ve got a lot to look forward to next year.

England are playing the West Indies (three match Test series), Australia (three ODI’s and three IT20’s), Pakistan (three match Test series and three IT20’s) as well as Ireland (three ODI’s) – plenty to soak up the summer with.

As always, EMG Events have you covered for your cricketing needs. Take the 1st Test against the W. Indies at the Oval – we have a fantastic range of hospitality packages available.

Can’t make it – don’t worry. See our Cricket Page for some of the other cricket we cover.


What you say


Planning the right events and ensuring the right mix of attendees can be a stressful affair so having EMG Events and Liz on board makes perfect sense.

Great organisation and smooth delivery of our recent day at Wentworth means Liz will be planning further events for Briggs and Forrester in 2020.
