Social Impact

Achievements to date

Above all else, we want everyone who visits or works in our venues to feel safe and welcome. Our ever developing social programme is designed to ensure that as we grow our business we continue to put people at the heart of what we do.

Diversity and Inclusivity

We’re richer because of our differences

Diversity is about recognising and valuing the different knowledge, skills, backgrounds and perspectives that people bring. We are focused on creating an inclusive and values led culture for our people, that reflects the rich diversity of our wider community and ensuring that our venues and services are appealing and available to all. We know that businesses have a vital role to play in championing and building a more equal society. We are working to create a more balanced, diverse and inclusive workforce.
