Leanne, Sep 2020
Hello Jane,

I just wanted to say thank you for organizing the virtual wine tasting for us yesterday, it was a great success and Chris was excellent! 😊

Everyone loved it and I will be sure to book a session for friends next time!

Many thanks,


Andrea, Sep 2020
Hi Jane

Wanted to thank you and Chris for a great event yesterday on behalf of Nigel and I.

We haven't done anything like this before and were a little unsure as to what to expect. We all really enjoyed it , it was fun as well as being informative. Have to say that I'm feeling a little worse for wear today...

Chris was a great host , the break outs and the quiz worked really well, it was engaging and we stayed on until around 8.30 so thankyou both!!

Kind Regards


Nigel, Sep 2020
Just to echo that Jane - thank you so much! Everyone had a great time and I think we learned a lot too

Please pass on our thanks to Chris who was brilliant



Christina, Sep 2020
Hi Jane,

Thanks a lot to you for setting this all up and to Chris who put on a great performance on Zoom. Everybody enjoyed the wine tasting, was much fun.

Very much appreciated.

Best regards


Lauren, Jul 2020
Thoroughly enjoyable session, the content, wine and knowledge was great and it was an excellent virtual session!!!


Debbie, Jul 2020
Hi Jane

Thank you for organising the virtual wine tasting for the team.

Everyone really enjoyed Friday night, they were full of compliments – thanks so much :)



Andy, Jul 2020
A bit of feedback below for you and Chris. It has been universally well received so far, so thank you both again for hosting and organising. I never thought I would get a question regarding Tom Waits in a wine quiz. One of my favourite artists and he has the added benefit of driving Diana mad!


"I just wanted to say thank you very much for arranging the wine tasting yesterday evening. It was really good fun and nice to see you all. Hopefully we’ll be back to seeing each other in person soon!"

"Hi all, just to second Claire’s thanks, thank you for a great event – it was a real success (and the wine was excellent). Hopefully see you all soon (in person)."

"My thanks too (and to Chris) and all bottles already recycled! That ice wine in an ice bucket on a hot day…what could possibly go wrong?"

"Just to echo the others’ thanks - it was a great evening and thoroughly enjoyed the wine / champagne and Chris’ commentary! Thank you for a great event."


Francesca, Jun 2020
Hi Jane

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for the zoom wine tasting last Thursday. Chris was great and full of energy – exactly what the guys needed.

Loved the set out of the tasting and lots of praise from the guys too.

Many thanks


Nicky, Jun 2020
Hi Jane and Chris,

Thank you so much for a perfect Virtual Wine Tasting Event.
You were easy to do business with from start to finish and Chris’s presentation was informative and fun.
We all enjoyed it very much.

From a more knowledgeable super taster!

Kind regards


Elaine, Mar 2020
Hi Jane

Yes the event was great thank you. Good fun but also very informative.

Will definitely keep you in mind and recommend.

With thanks


Jane, Dec 2019
Dear Jane and Chris

We had such a fun evening last night; thank you both for all your efforts.

Thank you Jane for all your help with the planning and managing all my questions back and forth!

Thank you Chris for a really great presentation, you are a true professional and we are holding you accountable for partly contributing to the many sore heads in the office today.

The losing team are still trying to find excuses for not being the Fastest Corkscrew in the West!

Thank you again.


Chloe, Nov 2019
Hi Jane,

Everything went smoothly with the gin tasting and everyone really enjoyed the evening (even people who didn’t like gin before the event!)

Thank you for organising!



Alexandra, Nov 2019
Hi Jane

Everyone had excellent feedback, thank you! Very happy with how the event went.

Definitely will be in touch for any future requirements.

Many thanks


Steve, Nov 2019
Hey Jane,

Please pass our thanks on to Erik for the winertainment last night - he did a great job.

The wine was very nice and I understand the cheese went down well. (I hate stinky cheese)

Thanks again for organising!



Bob, Oct 2019
Hi Jane & Chris,

I just wanted to thank you for a very good session - it worked really well - just the right amount of education, competition and fun (and the right team won!). I have had tremendous feedback from the team - so thanks again.



Leigh, Oct 2019
Hi Jane,

Feedback was great from everyone I have spoken to, a really enjoyable evening and Mark was good fun and really knowledgeable, a few facts learned I think!

Thirty Fifty has been recommended to our management team for future events.

Many thanks for all your help in the run up.

Kind regards


Kathryn, Oct 2019
Good Morning Jane,

Thank you to yourself and Erik for providing the fantastic chocolate and wine tasting which played a huge part in an extremely successful event. The chocolate and wine was greatly received by all of our guests. Thank you once again and we would have no hesitation in using you again for future events or recommending you to any of our contacts.

Kind regards


Beatrice, Oct 2019
Hi Jane

Many thanks for your message, we had some great feedback from our guests from last Thursday and I very much enjoyed the wine tasting myself!

Chris and Abbie were great and we'll definitely contact you for future events and highly recommend you to people.




Catherine, Oct 2019
Hi Jane,

Our guests had a wonderful time, myself included. I cannot pretend to enjoy wine but I got stuck in and gave it a go - it was really good, exceeded all expectations. The games were enjoyable too!
We had clients who had been before and they said they learnt so much and it was different. Chris just takes centre stage and knows how to command the audience’s attention doesn’t he?!!

Thank you once again.



Martyn, Oct 2019
Dear Jane,

Thank you so much for a fantastic wine tasting experience with Chris on the 1st October. Chris’ enthusiasm and energy brought our group to life from word go, with his infectious personality and incredible knowledge of wine he captured our attention from the very start. Not only were we treated to some marvellous wines, we left with knowledge and tips that we’ve been able to impress our friends with (although my partner thinks I’m making some things up!). Chris’ sense of humour ensured that the experience was fun, engaging and the perfect way for my team to enjoy some down time together in London.

I also very much appreciate the overall service you provided, it represented fantastic value for money, thanks also for your accommodating our short notice booking and for Chris’ flexibility around the timings of our meeting on the day.

I strongly recommend ThirtyFifty to any group of colleagues or friends looking to enjoy themselves together for an afternoon or evening, and will definitely be looking for opportunities to repeat the experience with you in the future.

Thanks again and best wishes for a busy run in to the end of 2019.



Kristy, Sep 2019
Hi Chris,

We just wanted to say big thank you for last week, we’ve had such great feedback and the evening was a huge success.

If we do another wine tasting event I will definitely be in touch.

I’d also like to thank you and Mark for helping out and serving drinks we really appreciated this and all your hard work.

Have a great week!



Sue, Sep 2019
Hi Jane

It was lovely to meet you and Chris and thank you for such an entertaining but also very informative evening. Very refreshing (and I'm not referring just to the excellent SAA wines!).

I am looking forward to chewing wine with my mouth open next time I am in 'posh' company!!

It was a great evening. Thank you both.

I am sure we will definitely see you again. You are now on our radar!

All good wishes


Dan, Jul 2019
Hi Jane

Yes we had a great time on the beer tasting. Robert was very entertaining and we had many compliments.

Thank you very much for the event. It was thoroughly enjoyable!



Richard, Jul 2019
Good Morning Jane and Anissa,

Just a quick thank you from me and my colleagues for a great evening last Thursday. Our broker clients had a great night, really sociable and the feedback from all who attended has been excellent so it certainly did the job. Anissa, your passion for the subject matter was noted by quite a few people.

We would like to do maybe a Cheese and Wine tasting in the New Year if that is something you can put on?

Once again, many thanks


Jessica, Jun 2019
Hi Jane,

Everyone had a great night and there was only positive feedback. Our committee who attended said that they thought the event ran smoothly.

So thank you again for running such a great event!



Ana, Jun 2019
Hi Jane,

I have just had feedback from my colleagues that attended and they all had a great time. They thought Antoni was utterly brilliant and were mesmerised by his knowledge and charisma.

The entire process with ThirtyFifty has been great and we will look forward to working with you again the future.

Many thanks for all your help.

Kind regards


Sue, Jun 2019
Hi Jane

The wine tasting was a great success thank you!

Anissa was great, very informative and connected really well with the group. They all loved it and we had lots of laughs whilst learning some quirky things about wine.

I would highly recommend your company and definitely use you again should the need arise.

Again, thank you very much – it’s been a pleasure from start to finish.

Best Regards,


Laura, Jun 2019
Hi Jane

Thank you for following up - things went really well I think, the team said they found the whole beer tasting session really interesting. The only thing I can think of on feedback was that they said that they did run over time a little, however I’m pleased to say there are a couple of new beer drinkers who have been converted which is fab!

Thanks again.


Louise, Jun 2019
Dear Jane
Many thanks again for running the wine tasting event on Friday afternoon for us.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon as well as the remainder of the wine into the evening 😊


Jennie, Jun 2019
Hi Jane

I wanted to email to say thank you for another great evening Chris as always was brilliant and myself and the rest of our guests now know how we like our gin! 😊

Many thanks once again.



Sue, Jun 2019
Chris and Abbie did an amazing job – thank you. Everyone had a fab time – a lot of people commented on how much fun the beer tasting was!

Thanks again and I will certainly keep you in mind – I understand you do gin tasting too?!

Kindest regards,



Ben, May 2019
Hi Jane

It was great thank you – everyone really enjoyed the wine tasting and learned a lot too!

Please pass on our thanks to Chris and Abbie.

We certainly will be back in touch to book another event.



Leah, Mar 2019
Hi Jane,

It did go very well thank you – Erik had some very interesting stories and some very interesting beers!

One of our guys said ‘we didn't really get round to discussing business; the focus was more on the beer quiz and quaffing!!!’ and others have said the beer tasting/quiz went down well with their guests.

Kind regards


Chantelle, Mar 2019
Hi Jane,

I’ve now had feedback from the group and they said they thoroughly enjoyed it, it was very interesting and fun. Overall they had a great time 😊

Kind Regards


Jayne, Feb 2019
Hi Jane,

Our clients all thought the gin tasting was wonderful, and Chris was very entertaining, they are a strong group of women to keep engaged… 😊

Thank you for your help organising.



Tracey, Jan 2019
Hi Jane,

All went well with the wine and beer tasting thank you, we had a great evening. Robert was very charismatic and had the crowd under control 😊

Many Thanks


David, Dec 2018
Yes thanks Jane, Chris was a fabulous host, very patient and informative. The feedback from the group was really upbeat and everyone enjoyed the tasting experience very much (even if it didn’t convert all of them to Gin drinkers!)

Kind Regards


Danielle, Nov 2018
Hi Jane,

Thanks so much for getting in touch. We loved it, as per usual. Abbie was fantastic and our clients really enjoyed it.

We will run similar events in 2019 and will let you know as soon as we have dates :)

Thanks so much Jane.



Danielle, Oct 2018
Hi Jane

I was just about to email you - last Thursday was fantastic, we had great feedback from all of our clients.

Please thank Mark, it was a really enjoyable evening.

Kind Regards


Karen, Oct 2018
Good morning Chris

I just wanted to say a big thank you for a great evening last night – you made it fun and entertaining and accessible for everyone.

There is often a perception that wine tasting is a snobby business but there was none of that with the way that you ran the evening. It was perfectly pitched!

What was also great to see from a team building perspective was people getting involved who don’t usually put themselves forward for anything – the wine probably helped with that!

The wines were very well chosen I thought – good choice of Chenin Blanc!! And I loved the red from the Barossa Valley, they were at a price point that people could afford which is also great.

Thanks again for a great evening - I am sure that we will call upon your services again.


Lucy, Sep 2018
Hi Jane,

Just dropping you an email to let you know we all had an excellent time last week – I think easily the best social we’ve had so far! 😊

The guys were great and everyone was captivated and entertained from the get go. Couldn’t recommend highly enough and next time we do something similar we’ll definitely be in touch.

Thanks again,


Kylie, Sep 2018
Hi Jane,

The event went very well thank you and Chris was great.

Thanks again for all your help & flexibility with this event – it’s been much appreciated.

As mentioned to Chris, we’ve recently started including Wine or Spirit tasting into some of our events and found they have worked very well, so I will absolutely give you a shout when the next one comes along – as you were both great from start to finish.

Till then, all the best.



James, Jul 2018
Hi Jane & Chris,

Quick note to thank you very much for all of your hard work in the run-up to this event and of course to Chris for great delivery on the night. Clients seemed to really enjoy it, as did the guests. They all really got in to it didn’t they!

Chris, great to meet you and to work with you on Tuesday – all went pretty seamlessly I think!

I’m sure we will have the opportunity to work together on other opportunities again.

Thanks both and enjoy the weekend.


Rupert, Jul 2018
Hi Both,

I wanted to thank you for a great time had by all at the AMI wine tasting event, (so I’ve been told). I’m sorry I wasn’t able to enjoy it with you, maybe next time!

Diana – massive thank you to you and for all your hard work, the feedback was great!

Jane – please can you keep me up to date with other events you are able to offer for the future? It would be great to have you as an option for more events.

Thank you once again!


Cengiz, Jun 2018
Hi Jane,

It all went absolutely wonderfully, I had tremendously positive feedback from those that attended and i thoroughly enjoyed it once again!
Thank you to you, Chris and the rest of the team, it was a lovely evening. I received a lot of positive praise about Chris's enthusiasm.

Thank you again, and hopefully be in touch in the future to plan another similar event.

All the best,


Jennifer, Jun 2018
Hi Jane,

Just a note to thank you and Mark for yesterday's wine, beer & cheese tasting. Everyone was happy with the activity and Mark was very helpful throughout the day.

Kind regards


Hannah, Jun 2018
Hi Jane,

It was as always a fantastic evening and I have only good feedback! Everyone loves Toni and the interactivity is always so good! The wines were lovely and I think everyone was really pleased that we did the fine wines this year :)

Already looking forward to next year's event!


Rose, May 2018
Hi Jane,

We had a great time, many thanks to you and the team!

The event was great fun, the blind tasting challenge and quiz really added to the event to get people mingling and having fun, the organisation and your team turning up promptly was great too. Feedback from the senior lead also was good, his comment was “fabulous event”…!

Hope to arrange another one in the future, if I do I will definitely be back in touch.

Best Wishes,


Emma, May 2018
Hi Antoni,

I just want to say a big thank you for the excellent wine tasting at our ladies’ event last night. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and the feedback from our guests today has been fantastic.

I think we were all amazed at how much we didn’t know about wine and just how wonderful things can taste when you put the right combination together!

Suffice to say, I think a few of us will be putting our new found knowledge to the test this weekend!

Thank you again for a great evening.

Kind regards,



Sasha, May 2018
Hi Jane,

I just wanted to thank you for Wednesday evening. Chris and Mark did a fantastic job!

Our guests really enjoyed the interactive side of the tasting and were pleasantly surprised by the different flavours. They felt that your tasting was interesting, knowledgeable and fun. Very professional with a good sense of humour!

Thanks again for all your help over the last few months and hopefully we may be able to call on your services again for a tasting, here at the School.

Best wishes,


Constance, May 2018
Hi Jane

Just a note to say a big thank you for the other evening.

The feedback was brilliant from our guests – they really enjoyed it.

Thank you again for your help on this.


Sarah, Apr 2018
Hi Jane,

Yes the feedback has been brilliant! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and everyone got involved. It was a great way to do something with the team and everyone has commented how much they enjoyed it 😊

Many thanks,


Angela, Apr 2018
Hi Jane

I understand the evening went very well and everyone had a great night, and we raised around £1500 for our charity Brainwave.

Everyone seemed to have a fantastic time and Erik was really knowledgeable. He was very organised and this helped us massively.

Thanks very much for your help with this.

Kind regards


Julia, Apr 2018
Hi Jane,

From the feedback I have had so far the evening was a great success. I am not a red wine drinker and I was pleasantly surprised that I did actually like one of the bottles that I tried.

Please pass on my thanks to Martin.

Kind regards


Robert, Apr 2018
Dear Martin

Thanks for your email. I really enjoyed the wine tasting. I have done several over the years and this was the most entertaining whilst still being very informative. A really good night.

Kind regards


Lauren, Apr 2018
Hi both,

Just a note to say a big thank you for last night, we all had a fab time and Chris, you were on top form as always. I’ve had lots of lovely messages and requests for more!

Kind regards


Fyona, Mar 2018
Hi Chris,

Just a quick note to thank you for last night. In terms of the brief you absolutely nailed it, and we’ve had fantastic feedback on the event already!

Many thanks,


Amy, Mar 2018
Hi Jane

We had an excellent evening thank you. Both staff and guests thought it was great fun. It was pitched just right so that those people who knew nothing about wine didn’t feel uncomfortable. I’m sure we will be inviting you back soon to run another session.

Kind regards


Sonja, Mar 2018
Hi Jane

The whole event went really well and Rob was great. He coped with the louder tables very well! Was a bit more booze than I thought we'd have but it certainly got everyone in the right mood!

Was a fun event and would definitely recommend it. Was educational too!

Thanks for all your help.


Kelsey, Dec 2017
Hi Jane

We had a really great time and Mark was fantastic! Much appreciated.

Nothing but good feedback from everyone which is highly rare!

Thanks so much



Nick, Nov 2017
Hi Jane

It was a great session, Chris is certainly enthusiastic, and it was an engaging session and everyone really enjoyed themselves, I think there might have been a few sore heads the next day!

Thank you and pass my comments on to Chris.



Jennie, Nov 2017
Hi Jane

The wine tasting was a great success as always 😊 I have had lovely feedback from our Clients saying what a wonderful evening they had.

The venue was fantastic as well the staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble

Many thanks for a great evening.


Mel, Oct 2017
We had a fantastic evening and Chris was excellent - funny, yet professional and very engaging! I will certainly recommend ThirtyFifty for future events.


Mark, Oct 2017
Hi Jane

Was an excellent session.

Abbie struck the perfect balance of sharing some knowledge on the products we were sampling whilst keeping it light hearted and entertaining.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I would recommend to others.



Laura, Oct 2017
Hi Jane,

The Oktoberfest beer tasting was excellent and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from those who attended. Given the noise, Chris engaged everyone really well and the competitions were very well received.

Many Thanks


Jessica, Oct 2017
Hi Jane,

All went very well thank you 😊

We all learnt a lot and the cheese was delicious. Thank you so much for your help in organising.


Roy, Oct 2017
Hi Jane,

Thanks for getting in touch.

We all found the session fun and informative. I think it set the scene for a few of the staff to spend the evening in the bar but I managed to slope off and go to bed early!

Thanks again for the tasting.


Elisabeth, Sep 2017
Dear Jane,

A short note to thank you for organising such a splendid event last evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I believe that all clients present found the evening to be both entertaining and interesting.

Please could I ask you to pass on our very grateful thanks to Erik, Anne-Marie and Rachael who were knowledgeable and attentive. It was a great show!

I very much hope we will be able to use your services again.


Claire, Sep 2017
Hi Jane,

The Manchester event went really well thank you. Overall all 3 events were a great success and the staff seemed to really enjoy it.

Many thanks for your help with organising these events.


Diane, Sep 2017
Hi Jane

It was very good, and feedback from our guests confirmed that it was very well received and that the format for the evening was excellent.

Many thanks to both you and Helen for making our event a success.

Kind regards


Neera, Jul 2017
Hi Jane,

It was a great afternoon thank you, everybody enjoyed it, have had some great feedback – it was very relaxed and interactive. The cheeses were absolutely amazing, everybody is still talking about them so thank you! One of our Partners lives in Teddington and he knows the place where you get the cheeses from – he was very impressed.

A big thank you to Chris and Mark.


Hannah, Jul 2017
Dear Jane,

It went so well thank you, Chris was fantastic.

He was so engaging and enthusiastic and got everyone involved which was super!

Many thanks for all your help once again :)


Lauren, Jun 2017
Hi both,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday's gin tasting - it was a really brilliant session and was VERY well received. You will be pleased to know that we continued on to a local establishment where we sampled more gin!

The words sherry, port & cheese have been thrown around so expect more correspondence in the future!

Thanks again.


Isabel, Jun 2017
Hi Jane,

The events went really well thank you and I’ll definitely let you know if we look to run any similar activity in the future, as the wine tastings went down really well with our customers.


Will, Jun 2017
Hi Jane,

We had a great evening and Helen did a fantastic job. Thanks for organising the event.

Kind regards,


Hannah, May 2017
As always it was a really good evening!

Toni is great and really well liked and had to deal with everyone trying to talk but he does such a great job of getting everyone's attention.

Thanks so much for such a lovely evening. Please also pass my thanks on to Toni.


Danielle, May 2017
I would just like to thank you, Chris and your staff last night for providing a lovely service for our guests.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the night went as planned.

Please pass on our thanks and we will definitely be using Thirty Fifty again when the chance to wine/champagne taste comes up!

Kind Regards,


Emma, Apr 2017
Hi Jane

We had a fantastic time. Erik and the team were brilliant, thank you for all of your work.

Kind Regards



Paula, Mar 2017
Hi Jane,

The feedback was very positive. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon of gin tasting and had fun which was the intention!!

Send my thanks to Erik.

I would definitely recommend you to others and come back myself again.


Claire, Mar 2017
Hi Jane,

All went well with Antoni and the guests all seemed to enjoy themselves :)

Thank you for being so prompt and arranging with such short notice. A pleasure to work with.

Kind Regards


Paul, Mar 2017
Hi Jane,

Thank for your email. The evening was very successful I thought. Chris did a sterling job (as usual) in entertaining all of us and the clients I spoke to and those who have emailed all enjoyed the evening.

You can see pictures of the even here: https://flic.kr/s/aHskTJ2K6S

I am sure we will use Thirty Fifty again for future events.


Sophie, Feb 2017
H Jane,

Chris was brilliant – so lively, he really helped to keep the energy up in the room and was very patient waiting for the speeches to finish before collecting the glasses which was appreciated.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves, the session was really informative (and that’s coming from a total wine philistine!) and the quizzes were a lot of fun. I have recommended ThirtyFifty to our PA’s who also organise meetings/events as we would very happily use you again.

Thanks so much for your help.


Beth, Feb 2017
Hi Jane,

It was a great event and everyone enjoyed themselves – many thanks for arranging and being so communicative.

Kind regards



Jo, Dec 2016
Thank you for your e-mail. We all had a great time on Friday afternoon/evening and Robert came across well and was very knowledgeable.

I have asked the team here for feedback and have received the following comments:

“Really good and enjoyable”

“Please pass on our thanks to Robert. I thought it was a very enjoyable evening. Robert was clearly very knowledgeable and got the tone just right. The drinks were very nice as well and there was a good variety so it suited people who were less keen on wine.”

“Thought he was great, informative etc. Beers, wines and spirits were perfect and whole tasting was enjoyable.”


Karla, Dec 2016
Hi Jane,

We had an amazing night, Chris was highly entertaining and the wine highly enjoyable. We received great feedback from our guests and would certainly recommend Thirty Fifty if I have the chance.

You were so helpful and patient helping us organise this with little notice. Really appreciate all your help.

Merry Christmas and many thanks to Chris also.


Jackie, Nov 2016
I would like to say a massive thank you to Abbie, she was fantastic and the feedback has been very positive. The evening struck a good balance between entertainment and education! And personally I was impressed with how she managed the diversity of the group.

The wines and cheeses were all a hit and the competition for the Champagne turtle trophy added a spark to the event, David who was our guest of honour was taken by surprise and loved every moment.

Thank you so much for working with us on this, I would definitely recommend your services and hope to be a returning customer in the future!


Daniel, Nov 2016

Thank you for your email; the night was very well received by our clients on what was a very enjoyable evening. Chris and Charles were very well organised, entertaining and we couldn’t have asked for more.

We would like to thank you and your team for your help, please pass on our gratitude. I have already passed your details to a couple of people who came along and we will also look at booking you again in the future for something else.

Thank you again for your help


Liz, Nov 2016
Hi Jane

Plenty of feedback and all good – you are apparently being recommended left right and centre! Chris was great.

Samples below in so far as in writing rather than verbal...

Really enjoyable night; well done to all of the S&C committee. And

I thought it was great! Have already recommended them to three people! And

A big thank you to you and the SC&C for last night's wine tasting event. Chris is a real find & his approach was great for our evening! A fun way to support our charity

Many many thanks to you and Chris – ‘til next time!



Giorgia, Nov 2016
Dear Jane,

The wine and chocolate tasting were really nice, we definitely had a good time. People were interested and laughing and enjoying the tasting and I was very happy about that.
Chris knows how to entertain a group of people. It was a really great experience to close the day - we'll definitely consider your company for future events.

Suzanne Lock

Suzanne Lock, Nov 2016
Hi Jane

Thanks for your e-mail, the event was a huge success. Please pass on my thanks to Chris and Mark, they were brilliant. Both staff and clients alike have given very positive feedback. We are having a debriefing meeting tomorrow and I’m hoping to repeat this event with other clients.


Kelly, Oct 2016
Hi Jane,

It really was a great event and everyone was still raving about it today!

Chris was very well informed and a great host and I have to say the amount of cheese and wine available was super impressive :)

We had an amazing time so if you need a formal testimonial let me know. Also I have attached some pics if you like!



Xaviera, Sep 2016

It went extremely well and everyone was very pleased. Chris was very funny and we appreciated that the tone was not too strict and thus we really enjoyed the moment. So thank you very much!!

Best regards,


Lauren, Jul 2016

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. You have been brilliant at organising last minute which is much appreciated and the session was really great, a perfect blend of fun and education with a bit of comedy thrown in. I have had nothing but positive feedback this morning so very well done!

Good luck with the Ironman at the weekend Chris!

Nick - Georgeson

Nick - Georgeson, Jul 2016
Hi Jane!

We had a lovely evening and thought Chris and the team did a fantastic job. I thought the format was perfect and my only regret is that everyone had left by 9.30pm – I guess that’s what you get when you do a Tuesday evening! The wines were very good, it was just the right style and pace. I particularly liked the fact that Chris introduced the format and then our clients could mingle and taste wines at their leisure rather than it being too formal. We’ve had lots of nice comments from our clients and my boss wants to do another one in October!

Kind regards


Jennie, Jun 2016
Dear Jane

We had a great time at the Wine Tasting and I have received lovely emails from our Clients saying how much they enjoyed it. It was a very relaxed evening and really good fun.


Kate, May 2016
Hi Jane

We had a wonderful evening with Chris on Thursday night and it was a huge success.

He pitched the event perfectly and much banter and laughter – and we learnt a lot too. Plenty of wine and cheese to satisfy everybody.

Thank you again for everything.


Paige, May 2016
Dear Jane,

The wine tasting went very well hosted by Martin. Various members of the team came up to me during the meal afterwards to comment that it was really interesting and interactive as a whole group compared to other tasting events they had previously attended. The wine was also really lovely.

Please thank Martin on our behalf.

Thank you very much for all your help co-ordinating the evening with The Dining Rooms; it went without a hitch!

Kind regards,


Sue, May 2016
Hi Jane

It was a very enjoyable night thank you with everyone having a good time! Rob was lovely and made us all very welcome.

Kind regards

Hi Jane,

We had a fantastic night and your team helped to them into the swing of things. Thank you so much for all your help and I will keep you in mind for future events.

Thank you for following up, the wine tasting was thoroughly enjoyable and a great way to finish off the workshop. Garry is quite the character! Many thanks for organising.


Lauren, Apr 2016
Hi Jane,

It was an absolute success!

Couldn’t recommend Garry enough, the night went off without a hitch and he suited the tasting perfectly to the team.

Thank you, Lauren.


Elliot, Apr 2016
Yes, many thanks we all had a great evening, which continued well into the night. Other teams in my business are likely to be in touch for future events.



Suzi, Mar 2016
Hi Jane

We had such a great time last night and huge thanks go to Chris – everyone had such positive responses as they were leaving and his organisation was fantastic, so all in all a real success.

Hope you both have a great weekend and I am sure it won’t be too long until we are working together again.


Linda, Mar 2016
Hi Jane

The guys had a great time – they haven’t stopped talking about it all day :)

Please pass our thanks onto Chris as he really made their evening.


Elaine, Feb 2016
I was unable to attend the wine tasting but the feedback I have had from everyone was very positive – Chris was great fun and full of energy, he made the evening informative and fun so sounds like full marks to me.

Thank you for accommodating us at such short notice and I hope we will have occasion to ask you back in the future.


Ellen, Feb 2016
Good morning Antoni/Jane

I just wanted to drop you both an email to say a big thank you for a fantastic night.

Antoni – you were great and it was the perfect balance of causal and fun but informative. I certainly picked up lots of interesting and useful facts!

Wine and cheese was all lovely too and everyone has given me very positive feedback.

Thanks again!


Ayesha, Feb 2016
Hello Jane

I just wanted to say thank you from everyone here at Deloitte for last night, the event went very well.

We had some excellent feedback on the wine tasting, I think everyone was very impressed with Erik’s knowledge!! He was also extremely friendly which helped.

From my perspective, you and Erik have made my job in organising the event so much easier and we will definitely be coming to ThirtyFifty for any future wine tasting events.


Frances, Feb 2016
Hi Jane,

Thanks for your email, yes it went very well thanks! Everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves and found the evening very interesting. We will certainly keep your details on file as we hope to do another tasting at one of our other locations.


Jacqui, Feb 2016
Hi Jane

The feedback was excellent and they all commented on how good Gary was and how enthusiastic he was and got everyone into the “spirit” of it and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. If anything else comes up will be in touch and many many thanks again.


Emma, Jan 2016
Hi Jane,

It was absolutely perfect thank you for all of your help, the team thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the wine.

Kindest regards


Lara, Dec 2015
Hi Jane,

Just thought I would drop you a quick email to say please pass on many congratulations to Gary for hosting a fantastic evening, and also thank you very much for a great night.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tasting and have had fantastic feedback from my colleagues – one in particular said: Gary from ThirtyFifty was excellent, I've been to a number of wine tasting sessions before but can honestly say that I learned much more yesterday than I ever knew before!

I am more than happy to provide an official testimonial/review and will most definitely be recommending you to friends – and would not be surprised if I saw ThirtyFifty again in future!

Kind regards,


Jane, Dec 2015
Hi Jane,

A big thank you for all your help with coordinating last night’s event and to Chris for hosting - it was a great success again!


Paul, Nov 2015
Thanks Jane, yes the evening went very well and we have had some good feedback. Erik and Ann-Marie were excellent (but I am sure you already know that!) - please pass on my thanks.


Jan, Nov 2015
Hi Chris and Jane,

Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help in organising out wine event.

All at Andrew Whiting Wealth Consultancy thought the evening was a great success with everyone having a very enjoyable time.

Chris thanks for all your hard work in keeping everyone’s attention, not always easy to do but you managed it perfectly.

Hope to use you again in the future

Kind regards



Tom, Oct 2015
Hi Jane/Garry,

Just want to say thanks again for last night - we all had a brilliant time.
The team have all mentioned how great the session was run, it was engaging throughout and good fun.

Thanks again,


Issy, Oct 2015
Chris was very professional and struck a nice note between informative and fun. It was a great fun event and everyone enjoyed themselves and quite a few have independently thanked me for organising, so they did get a lot from it. Many thanks.


Amy, Oct 2015
Hi Rob/Jane

I just wanted to thank you both for yesterday's beer tasting event. I have had fantastic feedback about how well the event was run and how great Rob was and even I was surprised at just how much beer I actually like so thank you both very much.


Mark, Sep 2015
Hi Jane

Thanks for following up. All went well with the tasting, and feedback from the delegates was very positive and they enjoyed Erik's style. It was a good opportunity for the group to socialise.

Best wishes


Ted, Jul 2015
Good morning.

Friday was excellent – the feedback was extremely positive and everyone had a great time.

Rob did a first class job and was a very engaging host for the event – everything worked fine.

Thanks for your help in setting it all up.

Best regards,



Adam, Jul 2015
Hi Toni and Jane

I am emailing to thank you for a fantastic evening last night. We have had some really good feedback already and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. The Partners and event hosts are really pleased with how the evening went.

Apparently they took what they'd learnt into the pub later so I think there are a few sore heads in the office this morning!

Thanks again, much appreciated.


Nadine, Jul 2015
Hi Jane

Thanks for following up on Monday's wine tasting. I have heard only good things – one colleague has said ‘The session was educational, entertaining, thought provoking and delicious!’

Thanks again


Kate, Jul 2015
We had a really lovely evening on Wednesday and Garry was great fun and pitched the event at just the right level. We are all very relaxed here and just wanted a bit of fun and he certainly made it so. A very successful evening and endless comments from my colleagues who attend saying how much they had enjoyed it.

A big thanks.


Emma, Jul 2015
Hi Jane,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and Chris for our wine tasting event last night. Everyone had a great time and they’re all still talking about it today!

Kind regards,

Tanya Lavictoire

Tanya Lavictoire, Jul 2015
Hi Jane,

The wine tasting went brilliantly well, and we all can't speak highly enough of David - clients included! Such a professional and the session was informative as well as enjoyable. Especially as the drinks began to flow he was great at keeping the guests attention! Needless to say we all enjoyed the wines too!

Thank you for organising for us Jane. We are hoping to hold another event later on in the year and may look at wine tasting again, so hopefully will be in touch.

Kind Regards,


Tom, Jul 2015
Hi Jane

We had a great time yesterday, it was a very good event.

Please do pass on my thanks to Gary, he handled the room very well and got the balance between fun and informative spot on. He was very knowledgeable with good anecdotes and I received many compliments on how good the evening was.

Thanks once again.


Nicola, Jun 2015
Many thanks for providing a thoroughly enjoyable wine tasting evening. It went down well with our guests and the wine/cheese pairings were fantastic.


Lindsay, Jun 2015
Hi Jane, We all really enjoyed the wine tasting, thanks. I think Antoni got the balance between informative, yet relaxed spot on! Many thanks for organising.


Tracy, Jun 2015
Good to speak to you earlier.

As discussed we were really impressed with Thirty Fifty and our wine tasting event was a great success. The wine selection was brilliant and Antoni made the night! He is so engaging and knowledgeable and was a big hit with our guests. I would not hesitate to use Thirty Fifty again.

Hopefully we will work together again in the future.

Kind Regards


Julie, Jun 2015
Hi Jane

The session that Antony ran for us really was exceptionally good – even better than I expected! It was interesting, funny and very entertaining.

I’ve also passed your details to those who were present as a couple of ladies mentioned that they have upcoming celebrations that might suit this type of activity.

Thanks for all your help,


Liz, Jun 2015
Hi Jane

I just wanted to pass on my thanks for a successful event last night. We have received very positive feedback of the event/evening, so can you please pass on our thanks to Chris.

Kind regards, Liz


Adam, Jun 2015

Many thanks for the wine tasting last night, I thought you did a terrific job, and managed to get everyone involved. I have had some lovely e-mails to say thank you and how much people enjoyed the evening. You managed to get the balance just right: not too serious, but managing to educate people at the same time, which people seemed to appreciate. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Thanks also to Jane who I know was very helpful in liaising with Liz to organise the evening.

Best wishes


David, Jun 2015
Dear Chris and Jane,

Josh and I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the wine tasting last night. It was by all accounts a great event and everyone was very positive about it. We will definitely be recommending 30 50!


Henk, May 2015

The team really enjoyed it. Chris did a great job at keeping it entertaining and engaging. Also learned some new things about wine!

Thank you for your support.




Arabella, May 2015
Hi Jane

We had a great event last night at our Beer and Cider tasting. Thank you for coordinating such a great event. Garry the host was the right mix of fun, humour but yet was informative. Initial feedback we have had has been positive and everyone definitely enjoyed it. Should we look to run any further tasting events in the future we will be in touch!


Lauren, May 2015
Thank you for your email. The wine tasting went down really well, I have heard nothing but good things from everyone who attended it. Erik was really professional and managed to engage everyone. Once again I would just like to thank you all for organising this and to Erik for coming along on the night.


Tiffany, May 2015
The evening went really well thanks, great participation and engagement within the teams and all the feedback I received has been positive. Thanks again arranging the tasting!


Jen, Apr 2015
Hi Jane,

Very many thanks to Thirty Fifty and especially Antony for a great evening. We all had lots of fun and feel we know a little more about wine :)

Would be happy to recommend ThirtyFifty. Many thanks again and best wishes,



Melanie, Mar 2015
Dear Jane & Chris,

I just wanted to say thank you so much to you both and your team for last night. It was a great success our end and everyone had a great time!

When you get a minute, as with last year, could you let me have a list of all the wines, cheese and chocolate that we had so I can pass it on to those who fancy it again.

Thank you so much again.

With kind regards.



Stefan, Mar 2015

Thank you. The wine tasting was great, everyone really enjoyed it. So practical and it was really fun.

I’m sure we will end up doing it again!

Thank you for it all.


Lee, Mar 2015
Hi Jane

All went well and David was the perfect host and knew his stuff, our MD came and thanked me in the morning and said that David had done a great job so high praise. Jon loved his gift of wine and the whole evening as well and the only feedback I have had has been positive, don't think many of them had been to a wine tasting so it was a different experience for them.

Thank you for all your help and if we need to do anything like this again I will certainly be in touch with yourself.


Geraldine, Mar 2015
Hi Jane, Thanks for all your help organising Tuesday’s event and please thank Chris. It all went very well and everyone was very positive with their feedback.


Marie, Mar 2015
Hi Jane,

I attended the wine tasting event on Tuesday and it was a great success. Everyone was complimentary about the session and Erik made it an enjoyable experience.

Many thanks!


Gail, Mar 2015
Hello Jane

We had a great evening thank you. Abbie did a fabulous job, she was very interesting and knowledgeable and the wines were great. The Great Fosters Hotel was also so lovely, the idea for which I got from your website so thank you for that. Great venue!


Sally, Feb 2015
The wine tasting was a hit thank you. Just the right level of information and people were free to do the quiz or just drink depending on what they felt like. I thought the ThirtyFifty hosts were very engaging. A number of people said how much they enjoyed it!


Sophie, Jan 2015
Thanks for your email, the event was a great success - the team loved it. I have passed on your details to the other PAs in case they need ideas too!


Emma, Jan 2015
Hi Jane,

Many thanks for your email – all went really well, everyone had a fab time. Thanks again to the team – they were brilliant.


Pippa, Dec 2014
Dear Garry

I wanted to write and thank you for giving us such a great evening last Thursday when you came to do a wine tasting for our Christmas party. It must be incredibly hard to pitch the right balance of fun and information to a group of tax accountants who you have never met before and had a varied range of wine enthusiasm and soberness – but you did this seemingly effortlessly and with huge amounts of enthusiasm. I felt that I learned a lot from the evening and immensely enjoyed it.

So – thank you very much for all your hard work and have a very happy Christmas!


Mark, Dec 2014
It was really good thank you Jane – please pass my thanks on to Chris and the team on behalf of our engagement group

Everyone who attended by the sounds of things had a great evening, particularly the wine tasting aspect!

Look forward to keeping in touch, and in the meantime – wish all at thirty fifty a Merry Xmas!



Ellie, Nov 2014
Hi Jane,

The evening was very well received thanks. I unfortunately couldn’t be there on the evening, however my colleagues that attended said the evening was fantastic.

Thanks for all your help both in the lead up to the evening and on the night.


Katie, Nov 2014
Jane, Thursday went very well thank you, everybody had a great time &, as before, Chris was really engaging, enthusiastic & is obviously very passionate about his subject matter – if I get an opportunity in the future I will gladly use ThirtyFirty again. Helen was absolutely lovely too, very knowledgeable & friendly.

Many thanks once again.


Stephanie, Nov 2014
It was a really good evening thank you and all the guests commented on how much they enjoyed it and how different it was to the usual drinks receptions they attend!

Chris and the team were great; informative and engaging.

Thank you for your help organising. I will definitely be in touch if we are looking to do anything similar in the future.


Kate, Nov 2014
Thank you so much for another excellent session. Please tell Erik we were delighted - the Trustees loved it. Might be another year before we book again but we will be making effusive recommendations in the meantime.


Stephen, Nov 2014
Thanks for the follow-up, and yes, everything went very well thank you; Rob was great and a good time was had by all. I think Rob pitched it just about right as even the none-wine drinkers got plenty out of the event. The wine tasting provided the perfect start to the evening to be honest, and proved to be a popular topic of conversation around the dinner table – everyone was suitably impressed by the bottles of Cloudy Bay waiting for us at the restaurant!


Colette, Oct 2014
Hi Jane

Yes all went well with the wine tasting, Chris and his team were fantastic and everyone had a lot of fun with the activities.

Thanks for all your help leading up to the event and if we decide to do wine tasting at another event I shall be in touch!


Sally, Oct 2014
Hi Jane,

Thanks for your email. We had a good event/evening and have only received positive feedback so far. Chris and the team were great and the wine was delicious. It was our first event so we will tweak future events accordingly but overall everybody enjoyed it with the wine tasting being the highlight!

Thanks for all your help.

Kind regards,


Donna, Oct 2014
Just a quick note to thank you all so much for our event on Wednesday evening

The food and wine was delicious and the service from the staff including yourselves throughout the last few weeks and on the night was spot on.

I look forward to working with you again in the near future.


Christine, Oct 2014
I would just like to thank you and especially Chris for last night. It was a fab night and everyone enjoyed it and I will definitely recommend you.


Allan, Oct 2014
Thanks, yes it was a great night and Erik was a great host. Many thanks for everything.


Emma, Jul 2014
Hi Jane, Just a note to say thanks very much for the event yesterday – everyone had a really great time and the feedback I’ve received today is excellent – the mix of wine tasting and group involvement was perfect!


Caroline, Jun 2014
Hi Jane, It was lovely to finally meet you last week at our event in Wimpole Street. I simply wanted to email and say thank you for all of yours and your colleagues hard work during our event last week, the feedback from our customers was very positive.

Thank you again and I hope to work with you again in the future.


Alyson, Jun 2014
The wine tasting was fantastic thank you, everybody thoroughly enjoyed the session. You kept everyone's interest and were funny and informative at the same time. I would definitely recommend you to colleagues.


Natalia, Jun 2014
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for yesterday’s event, we all had a great time and appreciated Chris’s presentations.


Charlotte, May 2014
Hi Jane,

It was a great evening and Helen was fantastic! Will you pass our thanks on to her? She made it a very enjoyable, interesting and informative evening and everyone seemed to really enjoy it!

We will be sure to use your company if we do any further wine tasting evenings. Thank you again for everything.


Calum, Apr 2014
Hi Jane, Would like to say a massive thank you to all at ThirtyFifty, all understood our needs and were very helpful in coordinating the event. Abbie was a brilliant host for the wine tasting, and received nothing but positive feedback from the rest of the group.


Beth, Apr 2014
Hi Jane, It went very well, the feedback was brilliant and the team found Rob and Antony very engaging, I would definitely recommend them to others. Thanks for your help in organising.


Denise, Mar 2014
Good morning Chris & Jane, I would like to thank you both for a great Wine tasting last Wednesday. The feedback I have received has been really positive and everyone were impressed with how much fun the night was and that they also picked up some wine knowledge. Many thanks!


Margaret, Feb 2014
Everything went really well thanks and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Please pass on my thanks to Chris and the team.


Dana, Feb 2014
Many thanks to Abbie for running the event - it went very well indeed and the feedback has been excellent.


Emily, Dec 2013
We had an excellent time on Friday! A fantastic host and we couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon! The wines were wonderful and it was nice to have a different selection and there were some split opinions on likeability which made it more interesting.

Chris was very knowledgeable and the element of competition was great (especially as my team won!). He made it very fun and entertaining and answered all our questions we had.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will certainly bear your company in mind for the future.


Carla, Dec 2013
Thanks for Friday - it was great! A good balance between learning something and fun. Enjoyed by all!


Jeremy, Dec 2013
Hi Jane, We had a great evening, thanks very much. Rob was brilliant and kept us all entertained with his knowledge and humour. He answered every question we threw at him, and everyone said how much they had enjoyed the event. Thanks again!


Helen, Dec 2013
You’ll be happy to hear that it all went really well for our wine tasting last Thursday. It was a really interesting, informative event and certainly provided the ice-breaker we’d wanted. Robert was really knowledgeable and a great presenter, and altogether I was really happy with everything. I was particularly glad that I was on the winning team, so got one of the wine coolers I’d chosen!! I don’t think anyone thought it was a fix...!


Carly, Dec 2013
Yes all went really well with the wine tasting thank you. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and more importantly the wine!


Alicia, Nov 2013
Yes thank you we had a great time, I was hosting 9 clients and every one of them has come back to me to say what an amazing time they had.

Camilla was excellent, and kept everybody entertained and was able to answer any questions we had.

We would definitely recommend your company and Camilla to any clients wishing to host wine tasting, and if we decide to hold more wine tastings in the future we will definitely be coming to you!


Danny, Nov 2013
We had a great time and Chris and Dan did a fantastic job!

I will definitely recommend you to anyone - thanks for organising such a great event!


Andy, Nov 2013
Brilliant, went down so well and can't praise Rob enough. Everyone went away talking about it and what wines they liked and where things came from etc etc, even spilled over in to the evening meal.

From Rob's perspective, bearing in mind we had quite a few individuals who know their wine, he pitched it perfectly, clearly knew his stuff and kept us all engrossed throughout.

Would absolutely recommend you guys to anyone wishing to do something similar, top job and thank you so much for making it such an easy process.


Nadia, Nov 2013
The wine tasting was just amazing thank you and exceeded my expectations. Chris managed to create this kind of alchemy within the group that makes you feel as if you were at home with friends! Great talks around wine, good laughs and lot of fun! All our guests enjoyed it. It was a pleasure working with you and I'm looking forward to the next time.


William, Oct 2013

A big thank you to Chris, Camilla and yourself for a fabulous evening, a great time was had by all.

We have had some lovely responses from clients this morning which is fantastic.

See you next time!


Carrie, Oct 2013
Hi Jane

Yes thank you, Camilla was a fantastic hostess and I have received lots of positive feedback this morning from everyone that attended.

The venue was also excellent along with the food they served. An excellent concept for a corporate social!


Chloe, Oct 2013
Hi Jane, It went brilliantly – everyone was buzzing afterwards. Thank you very much and please pass on our thanks to Sam!


Daisy, Oct 2013
The wine tasting was pitched at just the right level. It was fun and everyone got involved so really helped with the team building. I thought that the instructor did a really good job, he clearly knew his stuff and I think we all learned something new, which was a bonus. The really good news was, my table won the challenge...!


Donna, Oct 2013
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a very successful evening last night. I have received some great feedback on the running of the event which is credit to you all. I hope to work with you all in the future.


Lucy, Sep 2013
Hi Jane,

Chris and the team were brilliant, we could not have wished for the evening to go any better. Thank you all so much – the guests really enjoyed themselves. I hope that Chris and the team got off the boat okay! I will definitely recommend you onto others.


Richard, Sep 2013
The event was really well received by my peers who thoroughly enjoyed it. The three of your guys at the event were all very insightful, engaging and passionate which made a fun and relaxed environment. The wines were also well suited to the occasion.

The organisation of the event was also done very professionally and pro-actively. I would have no hesitation in recommending you for any similar future events. Thank you to you and your team for all of your work.


Helen, Sep 2013
Hi Jane, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for last night. Everyone here had a wonderful time and Chris was fantastic! Please pass on our thanks to him also.


Mike, Jul 2013
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for another fabulous wine tasting event. We had a number of guests and staff who have been to quite a few of these over the years and remarked on how good this one was and how much fun they had. Thanks again to Chris, Camilla and Ian.

Sam, May 2013
Tuesday night was brilliant.. thank you so much for your services... It was my third event with you guys and as always, superb!! Simon was excellent, and the entire party loved it.


Ben, May 2013
Quality night Simon, really enjoyed myself and I know you had the whole team buzzing!


Miranda, May 2013
The event was a huge success, and we’ve already had lots of clients emailing us to say what a great time they had, which is fantastic.

Very special thanks to Chris, his easy-going style and presentation was pitched just right, and he ensured all participants were engaged and had fun!

My managers were really impressed and we will definitely use Thirty Fifty again for future events.

Many thanks to you and Chris for your efforts. It’s been great working with you.


Lauren, May 2013
The team thoroughly enjoyed the Best of British event held yesterday. Please pass on our thanks to Chris who was a great host and made the evening really enjoyable. Everyone commented on his personality and passion which helped to create a great atmosphere.


Martin, Apr 2013
You will be pleased to know we all had a great time on Wednesday, and the wine tasting went down very well, literally. And, just as important, they thought it was informative as well. A win win all round.


Ian, Apr 2013
Friday was great thanks. Erik was also really good and ensured we all had an enjoyable, informative afternoon. I have already recommended it to a couple of people I know, who were discussing team building activities. Thanks for organising.


Lisa, Mar 2013
Hi Jane, Everything was perfect last Thursday, Chris was excellent in his approach to wine tasting and the food was really good. We were all very impressed and learnt a great deal, I know I did. Can you pass on our thanks to Chris for a lovely evening.

Nothing but good feedback. Rob made us all feel at home, and we had a great time. His knowledge and genuine passion came through in all aspects of the evening. Thanks Rob – a great evening.


Joanne, Feb 2013
Thank you so much for last Friday we all really enjoyed the Beer/wine tasting and Erik was brilliant and made the whole experience a joy!


Charles, Feb 2013
We had an absolutely fabulous evening, please thank Chris and his colleagues for putting on such a great event, enormously successful with our team and clients, we would definitely use you again and have no hesitation in recommending you to others.


Julie-Ann, Feb 2013
We all enjoyed a thoroughly wonderful evening Wine Tasting on Thursday, 7th February 2013 with Robert at the helm. He was friendly, entertaining and gave us a nice variety of wines to sample. We all seemed to learn something new about wine that evening - mainly how best to taste it and generally enjoy it! I would certainly have no hesitation is holding a similar event again or recommending this event to other colleagues, friends and family. It worked great as a Team Building exercise and to follow it right after a lovely dinner, seemed to make everything ‘flow’ (no pun!) very well. I thank both Chris and you for your wonderful service in answering all our initial questions and for putting the event together for us so successfully.


Sam, Jan 2013
Just wanted to drop you a line to say what an amazing time we had with Simon at wine tasting in Brighton last night. He was absolutely brilliant, really knowledgeable and great fun.


Conny, Jan 2013
Thank you very much, the wine tasting went really well and people really liked it. I think it was a nice touch to keep things lively in the evening and Chris and the team did a great job. I am very happy with how ThirtyFifty helped us make the evening an enjoyable experience for our clients and prospects. Will definitely recommend you!

I would like to give you some feedback from last night here at North Mymms. The delegates all had a great time, said it was fun and informative. Our staff here have said there was a lot of laughter coming from the hall! Many thanks for a good evening.


Zuleika, Nov 2012
Jane, I just wanted to say a huge thanks to you for coming in and being flexible in accommodating our requirements. It took a weight off my shoulders as you pretty much did everything for me!

Charlie, Sep 2012
That was a great night for all of us, thanks. Some of the feedback from the team: I thought Chris from 30/50 was entertaining and informative and helped set the fun atmosphere for the evening. I’ve been to a few wine tastings over the years. This was undoubtedly the funniest. Fab evening. Thanks!


Paul, Sep 2012
Just a quick note to say thank you for a great evening last week, the team thoroughly enjoyed themselves and remarked that you made the evening far more fun than the usual wine tasting they had before. We are a new company in the UK and I’m sure we will be in touch for future events!!


Emma, Aug 2012
Thank you very much for our wine tasting, we are very happy to report that all of our clients and suppliers who attended the event have all commented on what an enjoyable evening it was. It was a perfect balance of learning, tasting and fun which was delivered by the lovely Erik who really was charming and full of knowledge. Thanks again and we will definitely be recommending you to our family, friends and colleagues.

We had a fantastic time thank you! Chris was absolutely brilliant – he imparted a lot of knowledge, but in a really fun way. It was impossible not to enjoy the evening! I would thoroughly recommend your company – the communication leading up to the event was excellent, and your advice was invaluable in making our team building event a success.

The event went really well thank you so much to Abbie - The partners and clients were delighted - The choice of Tuttons was a great idea - the food was good and the price reasonable. We will definitely keep you in mind for another event. Many thanks again!

The evening went really well. The feedback from the attendees was really positive. They were impressed with the wines and also Chris' host skills. Please see a typical message of thank received from a client -
Just a brief email to thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable evening last night. I thought it was great format and the sommelier was both interesting and amusing. Perfectly pitched to his audience.


Gary, Feb 2012
All went well thanks and everyone had a good time (The Port was well received by all!). Sam arrived in plenty of time and she handled the evening superbly and was a good ambassador for ThirtyFifty. Would certainly recommend your company.

Everything went fantastically well on Thursday. We had great feedback from the whole team on how much they enjoyed the evening. Collette and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves too.

Jane was a brilliant host, she made the session very informative, yet fun. It was an absolute pleasure to work with thirty fifty in organising our Christmas party.

Thank you very much to Jane and Catherine for making our evening such a success.

I wanted to say thank you to Rob for his facilitation of a great evening. The feedback I have received regarding the event has been very complimentary and as such I would like to pass on my personal thanks to you all for the professional organisation of the wine tasting event and Rob's flexibility of adapting the entertainment to suit the group and the time frame that he was given. We will certainly keep Thirtyfifty in mind for any future similar events that we may have.

We had a wonderful evening thank you. Robert was just as brilliant as I remembered from the previous occasion. If and when we have a future requirement, we will definitely be repeating this fantastic evening.

Elizabeth, NZICA

Elizabeth, NZICA, Sep 2011
We have used ThirtyFifty for a number of wine tasting events, from 10 attendees to 120, and can highly recommend them. In particular, Chris Scott is an entertaining and informative wine presenter who will make your event memorable. For me personally one of the best outcomes is the increased knowledge of varieties and I can now walk into a bar or restaurant and feel confident to order a wine other than sauvignon blanc. Chris did an amazing job on Friday so thank you again!

Avril, General Mills

Avril, General Mills, Jul 2011

Jeanette, EDF

Jeanette, EDF, Apr 2011
The feedback I have received from colleagues was very positive, we all had a lot of fun and laughs. We drank some very enjoyable wine and some not so enjoyable wines but I suppose that is all a matter of taste, what some liked others didn't but it didn't spoil the evening we just swapped glasses! Erik was very knowledgeable, witty and really friendly. Please will you pass on my thanks to him for helping the evening run smoothly.

Thank you so much for all your help with providing another superb event. The feedback from the team has been fabulous – especially as a number of them were cautious of a repeat performance of last time and are able to actually remember the evening this time around…!!! Seriously, we all had a really lovely evening; Chris and Adam did us proud and it’s still the subject of some good natured team banter now.

Our feedback is all extremely positive. Our clients really enjoyed the champagne tasting, they thought it was fun, informative and a great way of encouraging people to talk.

Chris was fantastic, the audience were enthralled by him and he did extremely well given it was so noisy. His voice really carried and his introduction was great. He really made me feel at ease when he arrived and I was confident he would do a great job - and he did. Please pass on our thanks to both Chris and Abigail, they were a pleasure to work with.

Connie, Deliverers

Connie, Deliverers, Mar 2010
Many thanks for the wine tasting on Thursday - it was a very enjoyable and interesting experience for the participants. The teams came up with presentations and some of them were really creative and fun. It was nice to have the short wine tasting session before the group started their team exercise. Jane, you provided the necessary wine expertise both during the wine tasting session and during the team exercise, so I'm very happy with the results, and the client is happy too.

Jessica, Deloitte

Jessica, Deloitte, Feb 2010
Thank you for arranging a really great wine tasting evening. Everyone that attended the event said that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

I wanted to thank you for the outstanding performance you all provided for our event. We were absolutely delighted with the evening. Chris was a fantastic host and he was also attentive to our guests, liaised expertly with myself and Lili in terms of coordination on the night and was a mind of useful information and advice. Also wheeled out some nice 'Australian' banter which went down well!!!

Really we couldn't have hoped for a more successful evening. We have already received a number of expressions of thanks and congratulations on the success of the event and all our guests were impressed with your company's professionalism and panache.

A big thank you for the hugely entertaining winetasting on Monday evening – everyone enjoyed it thoroughly (even the few who didn’t drink!) and it certainly got the party started! And of course the icing on the cake (or should I say the bloom on the grape) was the fact that our table won – couldn’t have been better …
