We were well entertained all evening and felt they were well worth their fee.
The band were brilliant thank you! Really lovely to work with - I will have no hesitation in booking them in the future. Thanks for your help.
The musicians were really entertaining and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Their costumes were really authentic and set the standard for our medieval theme at the party. Would highly recommend them.
Sheila and Stuart were an absolute delight to have performing at our event. Guests loved the music and themed costumes, and students even sang along as the night progressed! They were entirely professional, lovely people and real good fun to chat with too. I'd love to recommend them to future Events committees at our college.
Absolutely fabulous. Please pass on my thanks again. These two really helped set the atmosphere and were professional, courteous and friendly all evening. Would highly recommend.
Brandywine Bridge provided superb entertainment for our wedding, which was perfectly suited to the surroundings of the medieval hall. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their music, especially the Christmas carols. The whole experience flowed very smoothly and they were professional, entertaining and charming. We were both extremely happy with the music they provided and would definitely recommend them in the future.
Excellent. The booking process was straightfoward and friendly. The artists were very good, and our guests were complimentary of them.
Dear Tracey, Brandywine Bridge were outstanding and I couldn't have wished for anything more, in terms of the music and ceilidh at my medieval event. They were professional, friendly and provided brilliant music and entertainment. Their music created the perfect atmosphere during the meal and the ceilidh which they ran after the meal was really great fun. I have had so many emails from friends and family saying how much they enjoyed the dancing - and commending the minstrels for their excellent performance. I was very impressed with the booking process, in that I contacted Warble Entertainment one afternoon and, by the same evening, I had booked the band and paid my deposit - so Warble Entertainment sorted out the arrangements very quickly. Tracey, through whom I booked Brandywine Bridge, was very helpful and responded to my emails very quickly. As will be clear from what I have said above, the artists more than lived up to my expectations! I would be grateful if you will also pass on my above comments and thanks to Sheila and the other band members, for such a great evening.

If so, Brandywine Bridge can provide music, colour, dancing and humour to ensure that your special day goes with a swing. For civil Weddings Brandywine Bridge can play appropriate background music during the ceremony. Your reception will be enhanced by the ensemble who will stroll around the room singing songs and playing tunes whilst your guests enjoy their meals. Following the meal you might like to book the Ceilidh (similar to Barn Dancing) where Brandywine Bridge’s Caller's infectious enthusiasm will encourage your guests to dance the night away.
Corporate: Brandywine Bridge has entertained at various types of functions for many major companies in many UK locations.
