Event Management

“Clare delivered a fantastic event for us, bringing 600 children and teachers from over the country to perform at a Sing Up celebration event at the Royal Opera House. Clare was dedicated, had great attention to detail, was very friendly and efficient, completely unflappable and had a fantastic team of people that she brought along on the day. All of the feedback we had from the day took time to mention how well organised the day was and how fantastic Clare and her team were. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Clare for future work…” Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative    Jo Hunter, Sing Up, April 1, 2009
