Corporate hospitality with
a commitment to charity

At Gala, we believe in giving back. As a standard-bearer for UK corporate hospitality, we’re committed to supporting those who need it most.

Gala is honoured to be a supporter of Cure Leukaemia, and proud to make a small contribution to their vital work. Meanwhile, as UK leaders in sports hospitality, we’re pleased to be helping a new generation of young British sportspeople break through with our support for the Truro Fencing Club’s Gold scheme and also for AFC St Blazey’s youth football team.

    Warwickshire CCC

    Gala Events are delighted to sponsor the annual Warwickshire County Cricket Club (WCCC) Youth Dinner and Awards evening. The evening is the only event which gets players from every boys, girls, men’s and women’s team together under one roof, recognising performances from the whole season.

    Gala Events have had hospitality facilities at Edgbaston for over ten years now and also run their sporting dinners and lunches within the stadium’s impressive banqueting facilities. WCCC’s Elite Cricket Development Manager Paul Greetham said “We are really grateful for the support of Gala Events, which helps us to put on such a fabulous event and recognise the performances of the next batch of players, who will hopefully one day be going on to represent the Warwickshire and maybe England teams.”

    Gala Events Director Alan George said, “We are proud to put something back into youth cricket in Warwickshire. Having grown up in the county and running packages at the stadium in the form of matchday hospitality and sporting lunches/dinners, it is nice to be a part of and support such a worthwhile evening.”

Dom Sibley (Brand Ambassador)

At Gala Events we are thrilled to have signed up with new England opener Dom Sibley as he begins what we are sure will be a long and fruitful Test career with his debut in New Zealand. Dom burst on to the county scene in 2013 and in only his third first-class cricket match, while still a student at Whitgift School, he scored a double century against Yorkshire aged just 18 years and 21 days. In compiling a brilliant 242, he became the youngest double-centurion in the history of the County Championship, the second-youngest Englishman to score a first-class double hundred and the thirteenth youngest double-centurion of any nationality! After building his reputation at Surrey he moved to Warwickshire where he has excelled over the last couple of seasons. Patient, determined and technically tight, Sibley was the only man to score over a thousand Division One Championship runs in 2019, knocking an incredible 1,324, with five centuries, five half-centuries and an average of almost 70 – a particularly impressive record in a season when ball dominated bat. We wish Dom the very best of luck as he begins his journey as an England Test opener and very much look forward to working with him at future events.

Pete Graves (Media Ambassador)

A passionate Newcastle United fan, Pete enjoyed a swift rise through the broadcasting ranks to become one of the most recognisable faces on Sky Sports. After leaving university, Pete started his broadcasting career with the hospital radio show Radio Tyneside, before working in the local Metro Radio, and then ITV Tyneside as a sports reporter. Since 2009 he has worked at Sky Sports, mainly as a presenter, where his passion for sport and all-round knowledge are amongst his greatest strengths. Over the past few years Pete has become a great asset as a regular host of our events, where he has conducted revealing and fascinating interviews with some of the biggest names in sport. We are delighted to have Pete as an official Gala Events brand ambassador and look forward to many more years working together!
