Claire Farrell, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences
All the staff working at the party on Saturday were lovely - friendly, efficient, and even playing hide and seek with our grandsons! We received many favourable comments about the venue, the food and the way the whole event was organized. Thank you again for all your help during the whole planning process.
John and Sheila Harries,
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with the arrangements for our various management team away days. The event coordinators are always friendly, helpful and efficient, they respond to queries really promptly and our bookings always run smoothly as a result.
Lisa Adkins, Birmingham City Council
The service is of high standard, quick, efficient and affordable. I obtained the quote on the day I contacted them. We had some dietary requirements, a late arrival for lunch but nothing was an obstacle to deliver all our requirements... They are highly professional and I particularly recommend them.
Natacha Fayon, Engineering Development Trust
Everyone really appreciated all the special little touches you put together… we really appreciated all your suggestions and advice. We’re also receiving really positive feedback re the ambience, speeches, short film, photo gallery, turnout, music, décor, but most importantly for the lovely food and striking drinks from a wide range of people.
Shruti Doshi, International Relations, University of Birmingham
We always look forward to returning to this beautiful, historic venue. The team always works hard to cater for the unique requirements of our events.
