From conference to party, seamless transformation

Finding a venue that could host our annual conference in the day with our Christmas Party in the evening was a real challenge so we were delighted when we discovered Kent House Knightsbridge. The transformation from conference mode to a Vintage Circus evening reception and dinner party was impressive and our staff loved seeing the venue change. Everyone had a wonderful time and the entertainment was a real talking point with the aerial lollipop performance being a stand-out moment, though the chocolate hot dogs were pretty memorable too! Thank you so much for all of the hard work; the whole thing went off without a hitch. The feedback was amazing and everyone really loved it.

Your support made our event unforgettable

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us with such a successful and fantastic Charlotte Tilbury event last week. It was so great to work with you on this as no request was too big and you dealt with our last-minute changes with patience and grace. Everyone was really happy with the whole evening and the venue looked gorgeous. The mini burgers we saved for late went down a treat and everyone absolutely loved the acts, the martini glass girl on arrival was great fun and the vintage showgirls looked stunning.
