The Great Big Event Company turned a small private dinner into the best evening ever. No detail was too small – fabulous, friendly planning; outstanding staff and absolutely fantastic food. Gilly + Jane – I can’t thank you enough.

Kate Harrington

‘The Great Big Event Company gave 110% to the organisation for a party for over 100 guests, which was enjoyed enormously by all. Superbly organised, catered and arranged – nothing was too much trouble.

I cannot recommend Gilly and the Great Big Event Company highly enough. They made planning my 40th a great joy and took away all the stress so all I had to do was enjoy myself.
