Volunteers at the Leamington Festival site during the Commonwealth Games help promote attractions and businesses


The Royal Pump Room Gardens in Leamington was one of 10 festival sites hosting athletes and supporters as part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, and four volunteers from Shakespeare’s England helped visitors explore the site and the rest of the city.

Shakespeare’s England Managing Director Helen Peters was joined by Digital Marketing Director Darren Tosh, Content and Digital Marketing Director Sian Smith and Business Development Manager Vicki Zamudio at the festival site in Leamington.

The group also lent a hand in helping Bowls England run a pop-up bowls tournament in the gardens, including the day the England team won a host of Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls medals from across the road to Victoria Park, winning gold in the men’s triples, silver in the men’s duets and bronze in the men’s para duets.

Helen said: “It was fantastic to experience the excitement in Leamington with the Commonwealth Games in full swing and a privilege to be part of a huge few weeks for the region.

“With the festival site at Pump Room Gardens and Lawn Bowls at Victoria Park, the Commonwealth Games really came to life in Leamington.

“There was so much for visitors to see and do in the city centre, from exploring the beautiful gardens and parks to indulging in excellent retail and dining, and it was a joy to be able to share this with visitors from all over.”
