All the pre-event planning and comms with you were excellent and made coming into the event a completely smooth process. On the day my massive thanks and appreciation go to Sion, he was absolutely brilliant and please also pass on my thanks to the banqueting manager, Angus and the AV guys. They all made the day run perfectly.

I just wanted to say a big thanks to all the staff for helping us organise our lunch yesterday. Everyone agreed it was a great venue and the food was absolutely delicious! I’m sure we’ll be back for future events.

BBC, December 2013




Our event last night was a great success so I wanted to thank you for all your effort in ensuring that it went off without a hitch. I thought the room looked great, your staff were very cheery and efficient, the canapés were delicious and everything went as planned. So thanks very much for all your hand holding and reassurance during the planning, and for a great end result – job done! And special thanks to Bogdan & Sion for their input on the night.

Thank you very much for everything once again - all went smoothly and the food was fantastic as ever.

A massive thank you to everyone who worked on our event last night and for making it such a seamless, fun, enjoyable and successful event.Truly one of our best to date.

I just wanted to say thank you so very much for all your help at the Walpole Luxury eBusiness Seminar. The whole BAFTA team are fantastic and incredibly helpful from start to finish that it is a pleasure to work with you all. Will be in touch soon regarding 2014.

Walpole British Luxury, October 2013




Thank you and your wonderful team at BAFTA for helping make our event last month a success. It was a fantastic evening for the NFTS, with a great turnout of industry guests. In particular, I would like to say a big thank you to Stuart Allison and Bogdan Starzec who made sure the event was not only a success but that there was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for our team to work in. And of course also a thank you to the Chef for our delicious canapés.

National Film & Television School, October 2013




The team at BAFTA are an utter joy to work with I can't tell you. They were simply the best I've worked with.

Jamie Oliver Event, Sunshine on Leith Screening, September 2013




As to the evening … it was a roaring success by all accounts and again the venue, the vibe and the fact you make it all so easy, makes next year look like another splendid possibility. I certainly enjoyed it. So a big thank you to you and BAFTA for a wonderful time, delightful service, good canapés and a perfect venue for the very young and the not so young!

The Deborah Hutton Campaign, July 2013




A HUGE thank you to you and Sion, Bogdan and the banqueting team who did a sterling job. Sion especially for helping me by doing lots of off-stage announcements which I asked for at the last minute. I will prepare this in advance next time. Food was delicious so thank you to Chef.

The Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, May 2013




I wanted to thank you and your entire team for the help, assistance and professionalism that you have ALL shown from our initial dealings with Sophie and yourself through to Sion and his team on the day. Rare is it to deal with a team where the first (and natural) reaction is "yes we can do it" now let us just see how - yet everyone we came into contact with at 195 seemed to have this in their DNA.

Red Beetle Consultancy Ltd, April 2013




Thank you so much for your help pulling together a fantastic event last night. Everyone loved the venue and, more specifically, the food! Compliments to the chefs. Now we just have to think of an excuse to use you again.

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, March 2013




Huge thanks for all your help and support with our conference over the past 2 days. It is such a great venue, and we have received many compliments about the space, food, staff and overall efficiency during the two days. Your AV team where a pleasure to work with, and we appreciate the numerous requests and early hours they put in for us. We were delighted that we were able to come back for the second year running, and I very much hope we shall continue to hold our annual conferences with you.

Christie's, March 2013




Arnold and I had such a great day yesterday to celebrate our Anniversary and everyone else has said how much they enjoyed the event. We would like to thank you so much for all you did to help make it so successful, and would you please convey our thanks to the lovely Simon for all his hardwork...the great chef, Anton, for all the lovely food he prepared...the cake was absolutely fabulous...and of course the terrific guys who waited on us. You all did us proud.

Pat and Arnold Pearce, March 2013




I just wanted to thank you for a great evening. The service was amazing, I don’t think anyone could ask for a better way of viewing a film – great food, drink and the waiters were so professional and to end the night with hot chocolate and cakes, was a wonderful touch, very very impressive. It was truly a thoroughly enjoyable event and evening and congratulations and thank you to all who put this on. Shows why BAFTA is a great place to host events!

Beauty Seen PR, December 2012




I just want to express our enormous thanks for a truly wonderful evening last night at BAFTA.

We felt very well looked after indeed.
