Saturday was spent performing for Stephen and Stacy at 2 venues. We began at a lovely church in Herne Bay, Kent before making a swift exit to return to one of our favourite venues – Winter Barns near Canterbury. This lovely old barn is a perfect venue for us, particularly with the weather we have been having recently as we can play under cover! The bride and groom chose some really nice music including Pachelbel Canon in D, Perfect Day by Lou Reed and All You Need is Love by The Beatles.
Premiere String Quartet began the weekend performing for a wedding at Syon House, Syon Park which is in Brentford, Middlesex. The ceremony took place in the main house in a beautiful room before we moved on to the drinks reception outside the amazing conservatory, which apparently the Crystal Palace was based on! The weather took a turn for the worse so we moved into the cactus house, quickly followed by the guests!
Premiere String Quartet have moved! We are now available for weddings, events and concerts in our new home town of Tunbridge Wells in Kent! We are looking forward to playing as a string quartet, string trio and string duo in the lovely churches and venues in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas of Kent, Surrey and Sussex – as well as continuing to perform in London, Essex and around the South of England!
Premiere String Quartet are pleased to have been named a preferred supplier to British Airways. Having performed at several events including a string duo performance for the opening of a new office in Hounslow, Middlesex we have now been added to Briish Airways’ preferred supplier list! We are looking forward to providing more entertainment in the future!
Premiere String Quartet are delighted to have been chosen to provide music for many of Procter and Gamble’s events taking place at Vinopolis in London.

We are delighted to be involved with the Games and are looking forward to performing for guests from around the world!
We just received a lovely email form Emma, who Premiere String Duo performed for at Northbrook Park in Fanham, Surrey last week..
We just wanted to say a big thank you for such a great job at our wedding on Thursday, it was absolutely perfect and all our guests commented on how lovely the music was. Thank you so much again for making everything so easy and seamless to organise, we thought you were fantastic value for money. Thanks again
Premiere String Duo have been extremely busy this week! We started the marathon with a 4 hour booking for Nahid on Monday afternoon followed by a dinner to celebrate the end of a European project for Southampton University in the evening. We performed a small concert at the end of the meal including arrangements for String Duo of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica, John Williams’ Theme from Schindler’s List and ending with Ode to Joy by Beethoven. The rest of the week was filled with lovely weddings for Chloe and Simon at Chilston Park in Lenham and a string duo booking for Emma at Northbrook Park, complete with the amazing peacocks!
We were joined by Louise on violin for a string trio booking to finish the week, playing for Rachel and James at The Walled Garden at Cowdray. They chose a special string arrangement of the Sinatra hit ‘Love and Marriage’ as their exit music which was a great upbeat way to start their celebrations!
