We handpick some of the nation’s finest Indian restaurants to present sporting guests in a relaxed environment whilst enjoying a sumptuous Indian feast.
The Big Braai, held at Wimbledon RFC, has now become an annual event and always sells out well in advance. We bring in stars of the world of rugby to share their stories in a laid back environment. Whilst the players are always a big draw, the real star of the show is the food. We bring in South African Braai specialists to deliver mouth watering food, fresh from the grill with accompanying salads and breads.
A focus point to our year, the annual Gala Dinner allows us a chance for guests and the great and good of the rugby world to dress up and come together in the 5-star surroundings of the Celtic Manor to review the season and look forward to the summer tours.
Arguably one of the best rugby dinners in Wales, the Gala Dinner offers a great chance to celebrate all things rugby.
Located at a fully serviced finish line restaurant, our race days allows you to enjoy the racing in style. We have a professional tipster there to guide you through the race card whilst guests enjoy a welcome drink and delicious 3-course meal.
We also offer the option to sponsor a race delivering brand exposure for companies and an unforgettable experience visiting the winner’s enclosure, choosing the best turned out horse and presenting the winning owner their trophy.
All of our golf days are delivered with the same relaxed, professional feel as our other events. Golfers can enjoy playing on some of the UK’s finest golf courses whilst getting the chance to rub shoulders and play with their sporting heroes. They also enjoy added bonuses such as on-course South African Borewors rolls plus beers, soft drinks and cocktails on various holes. We follow up the golf with a prize-giving ceremony and South African style BBQ dinner.
Whilst many of our events have a sporting theme, we also host boxes at some of the best concerts going. Artists like Ricky Gervais, Westlife, Lewis Capaldi, The Stereophonics and the Script to name but a few.
If you are planning to attend an international rugby match, let us take the hassle out of matchdays and look after you and your guests with pre and post-match hospitality for matches in Cardiff and Twickenham.
Match day package includes complimentary pre and post-match food and drinks package, match insight and banter from a rugby legend plus after the game we welcome you back for a sing song and post-match entertainment.
Through our contacts in the sporting world, we are able to source high quality signed items, often direct from the stars themselves. We invest in bespoke framing for all of our items which helps create unique memorabilia with a real wow factor. In addition to sporting items, we are also able to source high quality signed memorabilia from the world of music, film and television.
Alongside the memorabilia, we also provide access to unique experiences and events such as fine dining at your home and access to the top concerts in a private box.
Whether you are simply looking for signed memorabilia to add to your collection, for an item to auction at an event or looking for us to run a more comprehensive silent auction service, please contact us to see how we might be able to help.
“We used BH Events to run a silent auction at our event at the Cheltenham Cricket Festival and again at the Christmas party at the end of the year. The whole experience was hassle-free, raised additional funds and added some great theatre to the marquee. Our members loved the opportunity to bid on such unique items.”
Angela Edwards, Circle 2 Success
We work with a number of charities to raise funds on an event by event basis throughout the year and have raised thousand’s of pounds which have been donated to charities and good causes over the last few years.
Our chosen charity is one that is particularly close to our hearts. Through supporting our events, you enable us to raise funds for Noah’s Ark Charity who support the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales in providing world-class care, helping to ensure the best outcome and experience possible for Children and their families. They also continue to work hand in hand with the NHS to provide funding for the most up to date children’s equipment and facilities for hospitals all over the country.
“I would like to thank Brian and everyone at BH Events for their generosity over the year. The funds they have raised are vital and
