The venue team, which has witnessed an increase in event bookings over the past 12 months, has reported particular success with corporate events and Christmas party bookings during the festive season in 2014. This includes a 307% year-on-year increase in Christmas joiner party bookings in 2014, compared with the previous year.

In March, Twickenham Experience revealed that it had seen a 63% increase in event sales in February this year compared to February 2014.

James Lee, head of conference and events sales said: "As the home of England Rugby, we have a brilliant reputation for corporate events and it’s great to see that our Christmas party offering is becoming increasingly popular each year."

Twickenham Experience has been preparing for this year's Rugby World Cup, with a string of new hires, including the National Theatre's Laura Jefferies who joined as marketing and administration assistant.
