What people think about us?

Some of the things recent guests have said about our events:

"Thank you SO much for all your help and hard work on last night’s event.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. It’s always a breath of fresh air to work with someone whose automatic reaction to a question is to say ‘yes, if possible’, rather than an immediate ‘no’!

I also need to tell you how much positive reaction I’ve had from everyone I’ve spoken to about last night.  All my colleagues commented on how helpful, enthusiastic and friendly the hostesses, security guards and, of course, you and your colleagues were, and our Chief Executive has used the expression ‘very slick operation’ on three separate occasions.  Please pass on my thanks also to your technician and his colleagues for a flawless technical operation.

The guests also thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and loved the experience of being in Madame Tussauds for a party, and I know that the event is something that will be remembered with pleasure by everyone who attended."

Lindsey, Royal Television Society

"Thanks so much for a brilliant Yahoo! Christmas party at the London Aquarium.  I've had great feedback, and really think this was our best party to date!  Thanks for pulling out all the stops.  You were great to work with, very flexible, and made the experience a lot of fun to plan.  This was a complex, bespoke party and everything came together on the night – fantastic food, drink, entertainment, decoration, service... there isn't anything I could fault.  Thanks again!"

Christa, Yahoo

"I just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to you for everything.  The event was amazing and the feedback from everyone has been very positive.  Apparently, it was the best Christmas party ever!"

Janis, eBay (UK) Ltd

“Thank you sooo sooo sooo much for Thursday night!  The night was perfect and people have not stopped talking about it! I have been inundated with emails from people saying how much they enjoyed it!”

Chiara, Tesco
