More than 250 people attended the event, including Travelodge head office staff and their family and friends.

The event also featured an all-day cricket match between the Travelodge head office team, the company’s tax advisors, FTI Consultancy, and the company’s legal advisors, Addlehsaw Goddard (AG).
