Thank you so much for making our event on 29/9/12 so special and memorable. It was spectacular. Both of you have been so accommodating and all our guests had an amazing day. I will definitely be recommending the venue in future but I am sure as you know the place/ people speaks for itself. Finally please let me know the situation regarding the deposit. Also as a token of appreciation and your efforts, out of the deposit please keep £50 and buy yourselves something nice.

Many thanks again and,

On behalf of the Mahmood Family Just a little note to say a big thank you to all the staff at Empire who helped out on our Wedding day on the 6th October 2012. Each & every one of you worked so hard to make our day perfect.
We couldn't have wished for our day to go any more magical and every last detail was taken care of.

We would like to say an extra special thanks to Fatima, your personal touch & reassuring smile made the whole process of wedding planning much easier & thank you for making our day so special.

Thanks to all the team at The Empire for allowing us to hold our wedding reception at your venue. The venue is unique and blows you away the first time you see it. All the guests at the reception were amazed at how awesome the venue looked and are still raving about it now! A venue I will hire again for special occasions. The whole team at The Empire look after you from start to finish.

Review Rating - 5 stars top rating.
I organised the wedding for my son at the Empire in Sept of this year  and from start to finish the service/support given was over and beyond what we could have expected.
The booking was made 4/5 months in advance of the event and throughout this time help/advice was always only a phone call away.  We received much needed  impartial advice re caterers..waiting staff and a whole host of wedding/event related services..nothing was too much trouble.  We could not fault an thing.
The actual building is beautifully  kept and adapted for use without loosing any of it's historical spelendour..we felt privileged to have use of it.

Once again, can I thank both you and your husband for all your support for the function held on last Saturday. All guests and acts on the day were happy to walk away with great memories of the function and venue.
On a positive note, I think the round tables and chairs has been an excellent addition to the venue.
Can you also pass on my thanks your manager who works for you, he was always at hand when needed in regards to the any venue issues.
Mr Bains 

Thank you both for providing us with such a superb venue last week. All the guests absolutely loved it and I kept hearing it described as ‘stupendous’,’fantastic’,’outastanding’,’sensational’,’stunning’,’exceptional’. It is all of these things. You both are very lovely people and you looked after us all so well. I so congratulate you on your perseverance and sheer hard work in bringin the building back to life. Everywhere you look you see yet another feature which shows how much attention to detail has gone into its restoration. We will certainly be back and I would love to bring other clients to enjoy your surroundings too.
