Welcome to

Villa Park Villa Park’s reputation as one of the finest sports stadia in the country is enhanced by function rooms and supporting facilities carefully designed for versatility, performance and client satisfaction. The setting is outstanding too, as the Trinity Stand suites and the famous Holte Suite have undergone a multi-million-pound refurbishment which has laid the blueprint for a new way of conducting hospitality and events. For either business or private use, our extensive range of high-quality, state-of-theart amenities is enhanced by exceptional service, award-winning catering and a commitment to the highest standards of hospitality. The club recognises the importance of sustainability and believes that this must consist of a harmonious relationship between economic, environmental and social progress. Our strong community work constantly strives to further social progress in the local area and beyond and this has been supported by groundbreaking projects such as Villa Midlands Food and our allotment project. For more information on the Restaurant VMF and allotment projects, please visit our website www.avhe.co.uk We look forward to welcoming you to Villa Park and to ensuring the events we host on your behalf are enjoyable, memorable and successful. 3


Sustainability Aston Villa Hospitality and Events are passionate about using locally sourced produce and ingredients wherever possible. Our award-winning chef team take great care and attention during the preparation of your chosen menus by: • Reducing our carbon footprint by wherever possible sourcing local produce through our network of Midlands based suppliers, manufacturers and producers • Ensuring that emphasis is placed on seasonal menus to avoid using out of season imported fruit and vegetables • Aston Villa owns an extensive allotment plot just ½ mile from Villa Park. The allotment is run in conjunction with St Georges Community Centre based in Nechells, and supplies fruit, vegetables and salad items for our Restaurant VMF, community kitchen and hospitality on a matchday.

Villa Vitality Up to 10,000 Birmingham junior school children visit the club’s Villa Vitality programme, which is run in conjunction with local Primary Care Trusts during school term time. The aim of the project is to encourage 7-9 year olds to learn about adopting a healthy lifestyle, promoting the importance of diet, exercise, cooking and healthy eating with the primary focus being to reduce obesity levels in children. This policy of providing healthy alternatives has continued with our offering for our corporate clients with the main emphasis placed on ensuring we offer a selection of menus and alternatives so that the client can make an informed choice and select the healthier option if required. All menus and dishes are designed to ensure that Government guidelines are encouraged with ensuring wherever possible: • Plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and salads are offered to encourage the guidelines for 5 a day fruit and vegetables are met • Minimal saturated fat is used in our cooking processes being replaced with lower fat alternatives such as olive and sunflower oil. We only use lower fat mayonnaise and we make our own very low fat natural yogurt which is used extensively throughout our recipes • Minimal salt is used throughout all processes. Over the past 2 years we have reduced the salt content in of our recipes to ensure that our food offerings fall well below the Food Standards Agency’s guidelines for daily salt allowances for adults • No added butter is used to finish vegetables although it is available for clients to add if so desired. There are no hydrogenated or trans fats present in any of our food • All dishes wherever possible follow more modern healthier recipes For more information please go to: www.nhs.uk/change4life/Pages/change-for-life.aspx

Fair Trade Policy We are committed to providing a better deal to third-world farmers and ensure that our tea, coffee and sugar are fair-trade or rain forest alliance products.
