Warwickshire CCC returns to founding town with deal for co-working space
Warwickshire County Cricket Club has broadened its reach into the wider county by partnering with new co-working space, 1 Mill Street in Leamington Spa.
Having been originally founded at The Regent Hotel in the historic town in 1882, before the development of the iconic Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham, Warwickshire CCC will use 1 Mill Street as office working and meeting space.
However, 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 and we’re looking forward to working together on several events for its members.”
1 Mill Street offers flexible workspaces for entrepreneurs, creatives and businesses, with meetings rooms, a production suite and the Muse Coffee House.
Every Wednesday, the venue makes its studio and event spaces available to local charities and social enterprises.
Nigel Shanahan, founder 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.”
