A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN EVENTS COORDINATOR
Meet Patricia, the newest recruit in our events team who’s here to help you plan the private hire event of your dreams!
How’s it going Patricia, how long have you worked in the events industry?
I’ve been an Events Co-ordinator for 5-years now. I’m originally from Berlin where I organised all kinds of events – from political conferences to fancy themed parties. I moved over to Manchester at the beginning of this year and found that the team at Albert Hall share my passion for delivering unforgettable events, and so here I am!
Ooooh Berlin… FANCY! So, what makes up a typical day in the events co-ordinating world?
Typical day? There’s no such thing, but that’s what I love about it. One day we might have James Morrison breaking the hearts of many a mum, the next it’s a dream wedding or even Dr Marten’s new season launch. No event is ever the same.
Versatile, we love it. You know what we really love though? Some gossip! Give us the scoop, have you ever planned any celebrity events?
We recently planned a celebrity wedding for Coronation Street star, Julia Goulding. Taron Egerton was the MC for the day and performed a surprise song from his new hit movie, Rocket Man.

Taron Egerton…*swoon* What is one of your most memorable experiences as an Events Co-ordinator?
I had a request from a lady wanting to see the space with her partner and two daughters. On the day of the site visit, halfway through the tour, she unexpectedly took everyone by surprise and proposed to her now husband-to-be! He had no idea what she was planning…but said yes, of course.
We love a heart-warming story! What’s the most exciting part of your job?
I love meeting new people and finding out what will make their day extra special. When our guests come back to us raving about their event and are keen to re-book, that means all the hard work has paid off!
Final question and then we’ll let you get back to making dreams come true, what’s the most unique thing about holding an event at The Albert Hall?
You want me to pick just one thing? Impossible! But I think it’s the wow-factor, who doesn’t want to show off the fact that they’ve stood on the same stage as the likes of Sam Smith, Dido, Ed Sheeran and Fatboy Slim?! It’s the opportunity of a lifetime. What our guests usually love most about us is that all packages are bespoke and completely tailored to their individual preferences. Challenge us to put on an event and we guarantee it’ll be one you will never forget!
