Jay

Director

Jay

Jay is our Director and has worked with Damian since 2008. With a degree in Events and Hospitality Management he is taking the London Events industry by storm. As much as Jay enjoys working on our high-brow events, he’s also been seen serving burgers and chips at a charity fun run or delivering sandwiches to the team at 5.00am.

Jay is never off duty so when he is not savouring the flavours of one of London’s trendiest restaurants, you will find him in his home kitchen whipping up a feast for friends. Either that or continuing his ‘burger tour’ of London…one patty at a time.

Abi

Senior Front of House Manager

Abi

Abi’s worked at some amazing venues in London working for the best event catering companies in London, so she’s excited to see what the next five years have in store!

The best event Abi has been to was V fest with her friends – in particular dancing to Beyoncé. The best event she’s worked on was On Blackheath Chefs Club – the chefs were inspiring. Her last supper would be a simple, yet delicious combination: toast with bovril and butter with a slice of cheese and a packet of mini cheddars. Abi’s always the first on the dance floor and the last one to leave!
