Location is key when it comes to hosting a successful event, especially banqueting occasions where you’re working with a sizeable guest list. Our stadium is just a 20-minute drive from Junction 21 of the M1 and a short 15-minute walk from London Road Railway Station, and we have plenty of on-site parking available for those who need it.

We’re also lucky to be surrounded by plenty of hotels and accommodation options for overnight guests, which our friendly team can advise on.

When it comes to large-scale events, flexibility is key. Thankfully, our stadium has some of the largest capacity banqueting suites Leicester has to offer.
