What event planners say about our suppliers


Thanks very much to The Moochers for performing at our Charity Ball, the live music fitted the theme very well during entrance drinks/dinner and everyone seemed to enjoy the set. Good musicians, nice people and solid set.


Hello Ben and Ben, Thank you both SO MUCH for playing at Hydon Hill yesterday evening. As usual the music was perfect - top quality, entertaining, unobtrusive, responsive to the event. We heard lots of complimentary comments. I haven't heard yet how much was raised for the residents' garden and associated projects, but it was clear that Hydon Hill got a lot out of the event and it was great to have the local community involved in helping. Chris and Denise


Thank you both SO much for Saturday – You were absolutely fantastic and everyone was raving about you. I’m just sad I didn’t get to enjoy it more at the time (too busy trying to speak to people). But it was exactly what we’d hoped and more. Thank you!
