The Green Room, based at The Marriott Hotel, Cardiff, is a special VIP interactive hospitality experience. The package is known for its celebrity guest speakers and is hosted by Mark Durden-Smith, Lawrence Dallaglio and Mike Tindall.

The intimate surroundings of the facility complement the delicious four-course luncheon and beautiful décor, and event management is in attendance to ensure a smooth experience.

Principality Stadium is a just a short walk away where guests will take their seats and enjoy the match, before returning to the suite for some post-match refreshments.

The Green Room Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Green Room is all about the “experience”, rubbing shoulders with celebrities and enjoying the humour and banter of a multitude of speakers. The day is hosted by the incomparable Mark Durden-Smith who will interview and try to ridicule in equal measure the numerous Green Room Ambassadors, including Lawrence Dallaglio and Mike Tindal. Expect to pay a premium price for the privilege, which brands itself as “ultra-exclusive”.

Location

The Green Room at Cardiff takes place in a large function suite at the Cardiff Marriott Hotel (CF10 1EZ), which is an 8-minute walk to the stadium.

Facility/Décor

The suite is decorated with Green Room branding and a large stage area, providing a pleasant atmosphere in which to enjoy lunch and the ongoing entertainment.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for 10 guests, smaller groups are required to share a table.

Admission

The majority of seats included in the Green Room Package are situated in the West Lower Stand although some may be allocated in the East Lower Stand. The seats are provided in a block for your group and are located side-on to the action, between the 22m and Tryline. Please note that the lower tier of the Principality Stadium is quite shallow and does not afford a lofty elevated view. It will be necessary to leave the suite in plenty of time prior to kick-off because access to the West Stand is the opposite side of the stadium to the City Centre Hotels and there will also be queues at the turnstiles.

Catering

Catering consists of a four-course luncheon followed by a post-match hot supper.

 

Photo Opportunities

Drinks
