We hosted a World Cup Big Screen Event in partnership with Warwickshire County Cricket Club, for the England v Slovenia match on Wednesday 23 June 2010, at Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
Guests arrived at 12 noon and enjoyed a complimentary drink on arrival, courtesy of Marstons, before sitting down at their tables to enjoy a three course lunch. Barry Fry and Brian Little then came up to the stage and participated in a Question and Answer session with BRMB Radio’s Tom Ross. Both speakers shared stories of their times in charge of Birmingham City and Aston Villa respectively, before going on to talk further about England’s performances in the World Cup so far.
The match kicked off at 3pm and guests were able to enjoy the action on one of three giant television screens in the room, in addition to a range of plasmas around the facility. The speakers also came up to the front at Half time to give their expert analysis on the first half.
England won the match 1-0, thanks to a goal from Jermain Defoe and therefore progressed to the knockout stages of the tournament. The evening concluded for our guests with a match ticket to watch the Warwickshire Bears v Leicestershire Foxes Twenty 20 cricket match, which started at 5.40pm.
