Victoria Lodge

Victoria Lodge

Meetings and Events Manager

Victoria leads our events team as the Meetings and Events Manager.

Born and raised in Chester, Victoria has since gained a wealth of experience working in ski resorts and hotels around the world, including France, Italy and India. She moved to Jersey in 2016 and joined the Seymour Group as Events Co-ordinator before being promoted in 2021 to Events Manager. Building a good rapport with her clients is one of the most important elements to Victoria's role, and suits her love for organisation and planning perfectly.

Victoria is a keen island explorer, and enjoys swimming and kayaking in her spare time. Her top bit of advice for visitors to Jersey? Explore by sea! You'll experience the island in a totally different way. And of course, don't forget to visit the beautiful Plemont Bay on the north coast.
