"I would like to thank you once again for a superb evening last Thursday – the Lord Stafford Awards Dinner. I thought the evening went well and thanks you to you and your team it went without a hitch. " Lord Stafford Awards

"Athena is Leicester’s hidden gem. We at NHBC were desperately searching for a large capacity venue in the Midlands area, and Athena not only ticked all of our boxes, but it’s also added extra value through its unique (yet accessible) layout and facilities. From proposal right through to execution the Athena team were great to work with, very flexible and helpful at all stages. The service and quality of food on the night was excellent and the location is perfect as well. We look forward to another successful event this year with Athena." National House-Building Council

"Just a litte note to thank you for a brilliant job on Friday, we were all thrilled with how well the event went, and the feedback so far has been incredibly positive with everyone saying it’s the best one yet! Please pass on our thanks and gratitude to the rest of your team who were without exception a great help. The food was delicious so a big thank you to the chef and waiting staff. And of course a HUGE thank you to you for your excellent organising – we really could not have done it without your help and expertise. " FMC National Dentistry Awards

"We have used the Athena for our annual Golden Globe Awards event for two consecutive years and found it to be exemplary for service, quality and value for money. Nothing was too much trouble for Hira and her team who helped to make both events the resounding success they were. I have no hesitation in recommending the Athena to anyone considering holding a corporate event in Leicester. " England Netball Golden Globe Awards
