Meet the Real Face of Business

Chris Hodgkinson

HC Promotions Ltd

Who are you?

I am owner of HC Promotions ltd which brings the stars closer to you.
I have a real zest for life and providing quality events that bring you the chance to meet your heroes with memories that last a lifetime.

I live with My Partner Joanne, step son Thomas and Barney the shihtzu dog.

I attended oakwood Avenue junior school, followed by Woolston High School.

I enjoy all sports especially football, Rugby league, boxing I love to travel oh and especially enjoy going the pub with friends!

How did the business come about?

I have always had a passion for sports and over the years became the go to person to organise things on a social level with friends.
I was given the opportunity to work with Frank Bruno coming to Warrington in 2016 and have grown and grown since then bringing some of the biggest names to Warrington.

How long has your business been in existence?

We have just passed our 4 year anniversary and look forward to many more.

How many people do you employ?

Depending on the size of the event we have an carefully selected amazing team that all help out in their own way.

Why Warrington?

Despite being born in Wigan I have spent most of my life here. All my friends and family are here and the town is really growing with many special people and business throughout.

What job or achievement makes you most proud?

Wow!!!! there are so many.

Watching the business go from strength to strengh but the standout moment is torn between 2 things.
1 – The 1st and only people to bring the current heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury to Warrington Wolves stadium for a evening dinner with fans.
2 – Bringing Manchester Utd legend and current Wales manager Ryan Giggs to the Parr hall in front of 900 adoring fans.

Watch this space for some more huge names coming your way!!

Tell us one interesting thing about you that people might not know?

erm…..haha probbaly lots of things that I think are normal but people don’t know about me.

Maybe I’m a coronation street addict? I cant remember the last episode I missed.

Who are the people most important in life to you?

My Dog Barney of course and landlords Les and Vik at the 7 woods , westbrook! haha

Its has to be my partner Joanne, stepson Thomas , Mum Barbara, Dad Steve, Sister Nicola, her partner Steve and my Nephew and Niece Jack and Rosie.

Also not forgetting all the idiots I class as mates.

What is your ‘get through lockdown tip’?

To stay positive, keep busy and plan for the future.
