What people say Help

  • Our event was held at The Artrix in Bromsgrove. It was an afternoon of poetry and music followed by wine and canapes for about 160 guests It was to remember and celebrate the life and work of my husband Ralph Ockendon. The Camellia String Quartet were outstanding in every way: superb musicians who were an absolute joy to listen to; they were sensitive to the occasion; they were a pleasure to communicate with at every stage of our preparation for the event; they were beautifully presented on the day; they were prompt and well prepared and in every possible way the enhanced our event. WE WERE COMPLETELY SATISFIED AND WOULD RECOMMEND THEM WITHOUT RESERVATION!
