We'll need a space about 3 x 2 metres and four armless chairs. Refreshments, although not mandatory, would also be very much appreciated!
How do I book you?
Get in touch with your date, venue, and timings, and we can send over some paperwork. Once we've received a signed copy of your contract and your deposit your booking will be confirmed!
How long can you play for?
We take bookings for anywhere between 1-5 hours. If your event is longer than 1 1/4 hours we will need to take a couple of ten minute breaks which can be discussed when you make the booking.
Is it possible for you to play outside?
This is possible if it isn't raining. We need to be out of direct sunlight and the temperature must be above 17 °C . Unfortunately our instruments are very sensitive to weather.
What happens if my event runs over?
We understand that events such as wedding ceremonies are often prone to running over. Therefore we're happy to stay for 10 minutes after the booked time free of charge. For church ceremonies we highly recommend making a 1.5 hour booking to ensure the quartet can stay for the length of the ceremony.
Can I book you for longer on the day?
As long as we don't have any other engagements to get to we are happy to do this.
What will happen if one of you is ill or unable to make it on the day?
The quartet is formed of a pool of professional musicians who all have equal experience working as freelance musicians. If one of us can't make it there are several people we can use as substitutes.
Can I request a song that's not on your repertoire list?
Yes! We can have anything arranged for string quartet for just £30.
What will you be wearing?
The men will be in suits (and the colour of the tie can be changed to match your colour scheme!) and women in grey/neutral coloured dresses. We can also wear all black if you prefer.
Where are you based?
The quartet is based in Manchester but travel throughout the north west of England regularly. We can also travel further afield if required, and even play at events abroad!
Where can I hear you play live?
We do occasionally make appearances at wedding fayres, checkout our Facebook page for regular updates!
