Client Testimonials

"Thank you very much indeed for supporting HMS Collingwood's Open Day by providing funfair rides. This year's Open Day was a great success, with great weather and nearly 8000 people through the gate, which means not only were we able to showcase the Royal Navy, but have been able to make considerable donations to local and national charities. When we open our doors to the public, having a diverse range of attractions, performers, displays, performances, and stall holders is absolutely key to making our Open Day a success and I am extremely grateful for your contribution. After such a great success we are already looking forward to running next year's Open Day and hope that you will continue to work with us again in the future."

St Davids Bks WOs & Sgts Mess Summer ball June 2016

"The organization of an event like a Christmas Draw involving over 400 people provides many challenges. Without fail John and his team at THE entertainment Xchange provide the professional support and attention to detail, not to mention outstanding performers and entertainment, which makes the organization of such events problem free and easy. The Halton House Officers’ Mess ‘Masquerade Ball’ Christmas Draw 2015 was no exception and everybody in attendance had a fantastic evening. The fact that John and his team were in attendance to ensure the smooth running of the event was key to its success; it is this commitment that makes THE entertainment Xchange stand out as a market leader in the entertainment industry. We will definitely be using them again"

" RAF Waddington Sgts Mess - Summer Ball, July 18th 2014

"I wanted to thank you for the tremendous service that you have provided to the Priory Officers Mess Summer Ball. The feedback that I have received from the guests has been amazing. It has been described as “The best Ball they have ever been to!!” and I quote from one email:- “Having been a mess member for nearly 18 years now, I know a good mess function from a poor one. I thought the Summer Ball was a fantastic event and both Sally and I enjoyed it immensely. There was something for everyone, it was all good quality and had obviously been well planned and thought through”. I have received letters of thanks and compliments on a job well done from far and wide and it wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for you and your team. The Freddie Act blew everyone away, Pete Smith and Sam were so lovely and really accommodating, and backdrops/props were superb. I thank you again for all your patience throughout the planning process. The whole event planning was completely new to me, and it was your patience, professionalism and guidance that helped me through it. If I ever organise another function again, I will definitely be using you guys again. Kindest regards and best wishes for the future,"

"HMS Excellent WOS & SRs Mess - Comedy Club Night Wednesday 27th June 2014

"I just wanted to thank you for co-ordinating and arranging all the various backdrops, acts and entertainers for the RAF Wittering Officers’ Mess Summer Ball on 27 Jun 14. With the exception of one company arriving late - all entertainers arrived on time and were ready to go, and the one that did arrive late worked hard to achieve the deadline. The backdrops were absolutely fantastic, Déjà Vu were superb, the walking magicians engaged and amused the attendees extremely well and mariachi band entertained the diner’s through-out dinner. The fun-fair stalls, laser shot, rodeo-bull and the casino were a big hit (and quite addictive) and we even managed to get people line dancing early on in the evening. I have received a great deal of positive feedback from numerous Mess members, including the Stn Cdr, and more people attended than we originally forecasted due to the variety and number of activities! Thanks again for pulling together a successful and ‘hassle free’ Summer Ball!"
