This new arrangement follows hot on the heels of an excellent ‘Ashes Sleepover’ event held at the Ageas Bowl last November in partnership with Hilton. The stylish event, which was staged within the hotel’s Media Centre, saw a whole host of attendees invited to enjoy an evening of entertainment ahead of the series-opening Ashes cricket fixture in Australia.
The screening was viewed by guests from their very own Hilton bed, with Sky Sports Broadcaster, Hayley McQueen, and former England internationals Nick Knight and Marcus Trescothick just some of those VIP guests who took part in the evening, alongside a number of high-profile individuals from a range of local businesses.
