Loyal fans can hold their party at a top football stadium or cricket ground. Anthea Gerrie looks at the line-up
and banqueting rooms. The venue’s celebration packages start from £25 per person and include champagne, buffets, use of a lounge facing the pitch, bars, and club-themed decorations.
The most popular rooms are the Bill Nicholson Suite and the Oak Room, which can be tailored for bar and batmitzvah celebrations, as well as anniversaries or retirement parties.
With all packages, a stadium tour can be offered to your guests.
The venue itself does not provide kosher catering, but it allows its kitchens to be rented out for full use by supervised companies.
For those wanting to hold their wedding ceremony at White Hart Lane, the club even allows the use of the team changing rooms for the preparations and then lets you turn the players’ tunnel into your aisle as you make your way to a pitchside service.
