So much talent and just perfect for our event. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing artists! Music was beautifully played, guests were happy and so were we. Fantastic people. Thank you so much! You added a little something extra special to our wedding day.

The trio were fantastic and really set the mood for our special day. They were very flexible with us and the music was of outstanding quality. They worked with our venue so that we had nothing to worry about on the day. As we had an intimate wedding, we felt that our guests had received a musical treat which was special to us and them. I really would recommend this act, but their reputation goes before them. Thank you very much for making our day so special.
Such a lovely addition to our wedding and learnt the songs we requested beautifully. Thank you, Kerry & Lewis Cook
We are so pleased that we booked Central England Strings through Warble Entertainment for our big day. Right from when we booked them up until the big day everything went smoothly and without a hitch. We can not explain how pleased we are that we booked them for our wedding they were just amazing. All our friends have commented what a nice touch it was as they were arriving to the venue whilst canapés were being served and they were mingling. They let us make the song list from their repertoire and they played them so beautifully guests loved naming the songs as they played. We are so happy with every bit of service that we received and so happy that they were there on our big day.
Superb and seamless couldn't have asked for anything to be better! Thank you.
Central England Strings Quartet did a SUPERB job for our wedding at Rodbaston Hall, Penkridge. The guests were simply blown away when they heard them play, it created a wonderful atmosphere and ambiance. They were SO professional and always quick to respond via email. The arrangements were modern yet classic (our mothers hadn't heard Lana Del Ray- Video Games before... they both cried at how beautiful it sounded). We would fully recommend Central England Strings, in fact we will be telling everyone we know about them!! Thank you also to Coral & co. at Warble for helping us to find them. Your website is brilliant and very useful. We will be also recommending Warble to friends, family & clients. Many thanks, Emma & Peter Tilley
A very positive experience, thank you! The music was wonderful (although I did miss most of it, being the bride!) - and the booking process was very easy and staff very helpful. We'd just want to pass on our thanks to the group, who did a fabulous job! Katherine
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
Can you play outside?
We can play outside - as long as there is a shaded area. Our instruments are affected by direct sunglight and so we cannot expose them to the sun. We cannot play outside if the weather conditions are wet or very damp.
Can we make special requests on the day for our favourite songs?
Of course you can! Our aim is to enertain and impress your guests and so we particularly enjoy when guests make special requests.
Is there anything we need to provide for you?
We ask that you ensure that there will be four armless chairs for us to use at your venue. That is it!
Do you play with any amplification?
We normally don't use any amplification as our sounds travels well, but if you would specifically like us to be amplified this is no problem!
What happens if things run late on the day?
We understand that not everything always goes to plan! We are happy to play for extra time which we charge at an overtime rate of £100 per hour in total.
What happens if one of your players cannot be there on the day?
We have a 'pool' of trusted musicians of outstanding quality who we engage if one of our members cannot make the day of your engagement.
