1st Central County Ground the best place to entertain

We’re delighted to announce that the 1st Central County Ground, home of Sussex Cricket, is officially the best venue in Sussex to entertain your clients after winning a prestigious prize at the Sussex Business Awards.

The Ground scooped the ‘Best Place to Entertain Your Clients 2016’ award at a glittering ceremony held at The Grand in Brighton.


The judges were looking for a business or venue that offered an unforgettable experience and left a lasting impression on businesses and their clients, and the County Ground ticked all the boxes.

It’s the second time in five years that the Ground has won the award and its continued success is testament to the work of our in-house events team, 1839, who are responsible for the operation of the wide variety of events hosted at the Ground every year.

Now in its 28th year, the Sussex Business Awards is one of the most important dates in the local business calendar, recognising business excellence across Sussex.
