“Richard and his team organised a fantastic day at the Fourth Test in Nottingham for our party – there was a great atmosphere on the luxury coach, the catering was restaurant standard and to cap it all Richard managed to arrange for the Aussie batsmen to have an outbreak of self destruction in the morning session! It was a day that will linger long in the memory and I will be booking again for my client entertainment.”


“Thank you for an amazing day out to The Ashes in Edgbaston. From the moment we stepped on the coach the service and hospitality was impeccable. We had great seats to enjoy the cricket (and the sunshine) and Richard was on hand throughout the day to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you for such a fantastic day with great company, I will definitely book with you in the future.”


“Richard Blakey Leisure is our partner of choice for all corporate sporting events. We are consistently impressed with the high standards of service we receive with every event we attend.  From the outset of understanding our requirements, to the feedback we get from our guests, we couldn’t ask for more from an events company. That just leaves us the difficult job of sitting back and enjoying the day with our clients. Thank you!”


“We have been working with Richard Blakey over recent years to source and organise high profile client sporting events.  The meticulous organisation and the standard of the hospitality means we can trust Richard and the team to delight our guests and create a lasting memory. We look forward to our next trip with Richard Blakey Leisure.”


When I was the England Captain, three of the most important requirements for my team were:

  1. Talent
  2. Excellent planning and preparation
  3. Delivering the goods

It is the same in business.  Richard Blakey Leisure does exactly that.  They always deliver interesting, topical and high profile speakers.  They are extremely well organised and run to time and the punters absolutely love the events!

Blakes and I go back a long way. When I first started playing cricket for Yorkshire we were travelling partners. We then both had long careers and had lots of fun and fond memories both on and off the field.

I have attended and also worked at many of Richard Blakey Leisure’s events.  I look forward to RBL’s events because they always provide high profile, high quality entertainment and the venues are always packed and generate a great atmosphere. (The hostesses are usually pretty good too!!!!!)


When you work for Richard Blakey Leisure you always know what you are getting. Full venues. A great audience. Run to perfection.

One of the things I like about working with Richard is the variety of functions he puts on.The sporting one’s always have the top names but there are others that offer active audience participation with votes and multiple choices. They all create great atmospheres and create memorable nights.


On behalf of us all from Covéa, I just want to say thank you for Chester Race Day yesterday!
