I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for contributing to the success of our event yesterday. As always, the staff on the day were amazing, so helpful and friendly. It is such a huge relief from a customer’s point of view to work with the venue as it is the collaboration that makes such a difference.

A special mention to Keith, James and Michaela – what absolute stars and you are very lucky to have such talented people on your team working with customers.
