“This summer we wanted to celebrate our 25th anniversary in style and decided to have a big party to thank our staff for all of their hard work. We’d used Food & Theatre Company for a small Christmas party previously, which our team loved.

We contacted Anna and Orla to discuss the brief and the budget – they came up with ideas and menu suggestions. We agreed on a summer fete – including traditional games such as skittles and a coconut shy and decorations such as hay bales, deckchairs and bunting. There was a bar, including an Icon cocktail on arrival, and the food was a Middle Eastern mezze and BBQ. The party was a total success, everything ran smoothly, the food and atmosphere was excellent and the day had been organised with different people and abilities in mind. There really was something for everyone to take part in and enjoy. Icon’s founders, Laura and Harry Marshall, were extremely happy with how the party had been planned and overseen on the day.

The people that Anna and Orla brought in on the day were extremely friendly, and provided a great atmosphere. Last but not least, the party was cleared and struck down brilliantly – they left the site clean and tidy, there were no breakages and the location was treated with the utmost of respect. We can’t thank Anna and Orla enough and look forward to using them again in the future.”

“Food & Theatre Company have an excellent, professional and creative team whose attention to detail was evident from the initial concept, to the build right through to the performance. Their events are ingenious and original and our guests commented on how impressed they were by the set design and performance they had been part of.

Food & Theatre Company’s vast experience shines through every aspect of their productions and I cannot recommend them enough for your corporate audience.”

“Food & Theatre Company are a dynamic and inspirational company, bringing life to all sorts of places and creating music and vibrancy in derelict, forgotten or unused spaces. It has been a delight to work with them to help create our New Year’s Eve bash at Tobacco Factory Theatres. Their ideas have made the night into a unique and unforgettable experience.

Their professionalism and eye for detail has developed a level of trust between our companies which I see as just the beginning and look forward to many years working together.

It is incredibly exciting to visualise the event even from the very first meetings with them. Their clear descriptions and enthusiasm is translated with ease into their briefs which are always an excellent descriptions of the event they have planned. Along with their great ideas, their organisational skills are spot on, making the whole process calm and efficient. I know I can trust them to make a really special event.”
