14 March 2017

Fans attending this year's RBS Six Nations matches at Twickenham have been able to dine in style before the matches with France, Italy and Scotland in a bespoke hospitality facility built by temporary structure specialists Neptunus.

Neptunus were appointed by the Rugby Football Union’s official provider of match-day hospitality, to construct the venue in the grounds of the Army’s Royal School of Music at Kneller Hall, close to Twickenham Stadium.

It took a 10-strong team of technicians from Neptunus just eight days to build 2,500 square metres of temporary facilities. These included a large Alure Globe structure spanning 1,800 metres which formed the main dining room, accommodating up to 900 guests and incorporating a reception and exhibition area, plus additional space for bars and kitchens. Neptunus was also responsible for heating, power and the internal fit-out including linings, carpets, luxury washrooms and graphics.   

'The Clubhouse At Twickenham' was a sell-out for Saturday's historic Scotland match which England won by 61-21 to clinch the Six Nations title and equal New Zealand's record of 18 consecutive test wins since Coach Eddie Jones took charge.  England head to Dublin next Saturday in a bid to break the record and complete back to back RBS Six Nations Grand Slams with a victory against Ireland.

England's former World Cup winning captain Martin Johnson is the official Ambassador of 'The Clubhouse At Twickenham' and was one of numerous rugby legends that guests were rubbing shoulders with.

April Trasler, Neptunus Managing Director, said, "The Rugby Football Union's official provider of match-day hospitality require a high-class hospitality facility for their VIP guests as well as various ancillary support structures.  We have a long-standing relationship with them with a clear understanding of the level of service and quality that they expect, and which they know they can rely upon from Neptunus".

With a head office in The Netherlands and divisions in the UK, Belgium, Germany, France, Poland and Austria, Neptunus has a proven track record in the design, manufacture and delivery of all types of temporary buildings.
