Cricket club moving "home" in to brand new space in Leamington
"1 Mill Street is a fantastic venue that will provide Club employees with excellent opportunities to connect with local businesses and entrepreneurs."
Warwickshire County Cricket Club has broadened its reach into the wider region by partnering with the innovative new co-working space, 1 Mill Street in Leamington Spa.
The cricket club, which was founded at The Regent Hotel in Leamington in 1882, before the development of its longstanding home at the iconic Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham, will use 1 Mill Street as office working and meeting space.
The Club will also work in partnership with the membership venue on staging events, including player and coaching forums as well as collaboration on media production using Mill Street’s broadcast studio.
Stuart Cain, Chief Executive at Warwickshire County Cricket Club, said: “We started a programme in 2019 to expand our reach and to develop more relationships with supporters and businesses across the county, and we see this partnership with 1 Mill Street as an important step towards this.
“1 Mill Street is a fantastic venue that will provide club employees with excellent opportunities to connect with local businesses and entrepreneurs. We are looking forward to working together on several events for its members.”
Located in the heart of Leamington Spa, 1 Mill Street offers stylish and flexible workspaces for entrepreneurs, creatives and businesses, with meetings rooms, a production suite and the popular Muse Coffee House. When restrictions permit, every Wednesday, the venue will make its studio and event spaces available to local charities and social enterprises.
Nigel Shanahan, founder of 1 Mill Street, said: “We are delighted to welcome Warwickshire County Cricket Club to Mill Street. Together with The Wasps we are partnering with Warwickshire’s finest Sports Clubs, and know the relationships will be amazing for our members."
