Marriott has added some new events at the O2 in London to its Marriott Moments ‘experiences’ platform.
Five sets of concert tickets are available, all on a ‘buy it now’ basis:
- Strictly Come Dancing on 13th February (60,000 Bonvoy points for two)
- Simply Red on 19th and 20th February (45,000 Bonvoy points for two)
- Dave on 22nd February (45,000 Bonvoy points for two)
- UB40 on 25th February (45,000 Bonvoy points for two)
There are six pairs of tickets for each concert, although a couple of the Strictly ones have already gone.
The Marriott Bonvoy Suite at the O2 is impressive. Assuming the usual pre-covid set-up returns, there is a free hot buffet served before the concert and a free bar all night. I have been multiple times, and here is a review by Anika of how the Marriott Bonvoy suite works.
A picture of the suite is below. The only caveat is that it is a long way from the stage, so if you want to be close to the action – hard at the O2 – it isn’t the place for you. It’s better for casual fans who appreciate the ability to wander in and out of the suite at will during the evening.
If you click here you bring up all of the London events on the Marriott Moments site.
If you are more interested in football, Manchester United hospitality packages are currently available for the following games:
- Middlesbrough on 4th February
- Watford on 26th February
These are not ‘buy it now’ packages but are being auctioned.
