One of the UK’s fasting growing venue and event caterers, Amadeus, has been appointed sole provider of all catering requirements at Coventry’s historic Cathedral.
Famously bombed in the Second World War, the ruins of the previous 14th Century Gothic Cathedral now sits alongside the new St. Michael’s Cathedral, which attracts 34,000 visitors each year.
The Cathedral which hosts weddings, special occasions and a variety of other events and is open to the public seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Amadeus will cater for all events across the venue from weddings to corporate meetings, coach tours and public events like The Flower Festival, as well as introduce a new coffee shop on site – Cloisters - to serve visitors and passers by with hot and cold light lunches, handmade coffee and barista coffee.
Jane Woodward, Executive Director of Coventry Cathedral, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Amadeus. They are an award-winning team who inspired us with their approach, their ideas and their passion for what they do. And, with more than 35 years experience catering at some of the country’s top venues, we’re confident we’re in good hands, where together we will develop a really great catering offer for our guests, visitors and congregation.”
The premium event caterer already operates at a number of prestigious historic venues including Warwickshire’s Kenilworth Castle and recently announced Stoneleigh Abbey. Part of the NEC Group, Amadeus also operates at the Group’s world class venues the NEC, the LG Arena, the NIA and the ICC, as well as Coventry Transport Museum and the National Sea Life Centre. The company also delivers catering a number of high profile external event including the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics this summer.
Kevin Watson, Managing Director of Amadeus, said: "This is another great partnership for Amadeus and we’re looking forward to working with Coventry Cathedral and welcoming the visitors to enjoy great food in a fantastic venue.”
