History comes to life with ‘The Gas Lamp’

Aston Villa’s plans to bring our glorious past fully to life around the stadium continues with the arrival of ‘The Gas Lamp’.

This new history-fuelled hospitality space, in the North Stand, follows hot on the heels of our summer Villa Park refurbishment. 

This has seen the likes of Ron Saunders, Gordon Cowans and Stiliyan Petrov take pride of place in a mural on Villa Village, the history of Villa Park represented in pictures along the Indoor Academy wall and an all-time XI image gallery coming soon to the Holte End.

‘The Gas Lamp’ is the latest move in this direction as we celebrate our famous founding story.

Legend has it that on 21st November 1874, four members of the Wesleyan Chapel male adult bible class met under a gas lamp in Heathfield Road to form Aston Villa.

The four founding fathers of our club are believed to be Jack Hughes, William H Price, George Matthews and William H Scattergood.

Some 140 years on from that, we installed a lamp outside the Holte Suite entrance, which acts as a point of interest for fans young and old and a place for generations of fans to meet.

We’re taking it a step further with ‘The Gas Lamp’ – a new hospitality package, which will show off our illuminating story as you enjoy the modern day matchday experience.

Demand across all other hospitality areas has been extremely high and so this new area offers the best chance to get a luxury experience in B6 as we continue our Premier League journey.

It will open to fans for the game against Burnley on Sat 28th September.

We are now on sale and taking bookings for all home league games this season.

Prices start from £75 [plus VAT] per person at a silver-graded fixture.
