Testimonials

“Our 2nd Annual Sporting Dinner at The John Smith’s Stadium was a great success and the support we received from the Stadium both leading up to the event and on the night was superb. Our guests had an amazing time listening to the stories of our sporting stars and the whole night went so much smoother thanks to the great work from the Stadium teams. I would highly recommend the Stadium to any charity/organisation looking at holding a similar event, you won’t be disappointed.”
