#SpotlightOn: Brown Shipley Club Suite

Organising a small meeting or event can be quite tricky in terms of finding a suitable venue, which combines natural light and the right space for the event.

At Emirates Old Trafford, we have a range of intelligent event spaces to suit your needs, which can cater from ten to 2,000 delegates.

This month’s #SpotlightOn focuses on the Brown Shipley Club Suite.


In the heart of the Pavilion on the second floor is the Brown Shipley Club Suite, offering an ideal space for small meetings, events, or pre-dinner drinks.

The suite can cater for up to 80 guests, and provides an alternative space to the Lancaster Suite a space which can cater a slightly larger number of 100 guests.

The Brown Shipley Club Suite was previously the home changing room, which saw Lancashire dominate One-Day cricket, in particular during the 1970’s and again in the 1990’s, when the team won eight trophies in a decade.

The room is the perfect size for staff training, creating an inspiring environment with natural daylight in abundance, providing a space which will motivate and stimulate your team.

With fantastic pitch views and a private balcony, the room can also be combined as breakout space for corporate events, and provides the opportunity for delegates to enjoy fresh air and soak up views of the rolling hills of the Peak District in the distance.

All rooms come with an in-house PA, dimmable lights, digital signage, screen and projector, air conditioning and complete blackout blinds to combine the traditional surroundings with modern capabilities perfectly designed to deliver a great experience for your next meeting, event or dinner.

If you’re hosting an all-day meeting, we can provide catering which we can tailor to your needs. Delegates can choose from a variety of packages, which can include lunch offerings such as; finger buffets, healthy buffets and fork buffet menus.

If you’re looking for overnight accommodation for your next event, or perhaps you’re hosting a residential conference, look no further than the four-star Hilton Garden Inn. Boasting 150 rooms, 80 of which are pitch facing with balconies, the hotel also offers a Caffè Nero and Garden Grille restaurant and bar, where guests can enjoy a fresh, cooked to order breakfast.

Situated just three miles from the city centre, Emirates Old Trafford is easily accessible by car and public transport too, with a Metrolink stop directly behind the stadium, and 700 on-site car parking spaces.
