ACC Liverpool welcomes Steve Gerrard for his testimonial dinner

ACC Liverpool welcomed Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard to his glittering testimonial dinner.   BT Convention Centre, part of ACC Liverpool which is also home to Echo Arena, was transformed into a lavish banqueting hall for around 1,000 guests, including the player’s wife Alex Gerrard, majority of the Liverpool football team and a host of celebrities.

Production was provided in-house by the ACC Liverpool team who created bespoke lighting, featuring stretched sails across the ceiling of hall two to reflect the city’s rich maritime history.  A menu was provided by ACC Liverpool’s catering arm, Heathcotes.

The dinner, and testimonial match against Olympiacos, raised more than £1m for the Liverpool and England captain’s charity, the Steven Gerrard Foundation, which will be distributed to a range of children’s causes.  Singer Chris de Burgh and comedian John Bishop provided the entertainment.

Event organiser James Corcoran, of Sportcel, said: “The event was a great success.  Our thanks go to the entire ACC Liverpool team for their organisation leading up to and during the gala dinner.  We received only positive feedback from guests.”
