Thank you so much to everyone involved, you really made the event what it was.”

‘A royal pleasure to work with High Society. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to those who worked at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant. It was a pleasure to have all your staff arrive on time regardless of the early morning start and restricted public transport. All staff were very knowledgeable in their field and once given an instruction, carried it out seamlessly with style. When catering on eight boats for guests such as The Middletons and Sebastian Coe, it is crucial to maintain the highest of standards and High-Society never fail to let us down.

We have a number of managers on our events and all were in agreement that High Society have a fantastic attitude and willingness.”
“A really big thank you from all of us to your staff who helped to make everything happen.”
“The waiting team were brilliant, so much so the client pulled us all aside after the event and told them personally how great the service had been. In particular she mentioned that they were attentive, proactive and very friendly, with no additional direction needed during the evening. From my perspective the guys were all extremely helpful in setting up the canapés and making sure drinks were well circulated.
In particular, Jenna stood out (probably as she has the most experience), but we are happy for all to go on our preferred list.”

All staff were fantastic and a few were particular great, which would definitely like back on future events if possible, I think they really enjoyed working at the venue as we had a bit of a guided tour before the guests arrived (I think I may have enjoyed this more than the staff!) The event ran really smoothly and the staff had a huge challenge on their hands getting everything up and down 6 flights of stairs. They all carried out the tasks expected of them and did not moan once. We managed to get everyone out by a quarter past midnight (signing a few out a little earlier) so transport was not an issue at all, thank you so much for this.
I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you so so much for your beautiful staff on Saturday. The event for us had some unforeseen issues and we were all a bit stressed on the day itself and the few days leading up to it but the feedback from the guests and the client this morning is better than ever and most of that is down to the help and support we had from your staff. Philip was incredible and a great asset to our team.
We had an excellent day at the show today. Miele hospitality was excellent and we’d be grateful if you could pass on to whoever employs Hannah, our praise for her excellent service. She is an energetic lady who not only covered reception but also served many guests and has a natural customer-facing attitude. Regards Alan Hill
Our High Society Farnborough team this year were a pleasure to work with. Thanks again for giving us the best people!

‘I wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of my team and the Buckingham Palace Events Team for all your help during the Buckingham Palace Garden Parties this summer. We have received great feedback from the Palace with regards to the security clearance and the standard of the High Society staff at all the garden party events through June and July. Over the course of the Garden Parties we served enough people to fill a football stadium (twice if you’re an Ipswich fan!!), over 60,000 sandwiches, over 120,000 cakes and biscuits (enough to make even Mr. Kipling a bit queasy), over 2000 litres of Iced Coffee and more Lemon Barley than is served over 2 weeks at Wimbledon!!!! And all in the scorching heat!! Please pass on a huge thanks to all the High Society team who worked with us during the events.’
