“Over the years, we have witnessed the performance of many after dinner speakers, and have generally been pleased with their performance. Having said that, none of them have ever received a standing ovation – which you did following your performance. Our senior Managers are from every division in our Company, whether it be sales or accounting, systems or personnel and, as you found, we have a 50:50 split of male and female staff. Nevertheless, your comedy, without sexist, racist or religious overtones, kept us all entertained for well over an hour. We can certainly recommend you to others who require a talented entertainer. “
LUNN POLY LIMITED – Alan Righton, Operations Administration Manager
“Our annual Dinner Dance last week was a great success – in large part because of you. We asked you to be Master of Ceremonies and were not disappointed. You managed, not only to provide one of the best stand-up routines I have ever heard, but also managed to get us through the prize giving (with all its usual chaos) and the raffle with the same wonderful sense of humour which characterised the whole evening. You have set a new standard for our annual event and will be a very hard act to follow. “
HISTORIC SPORTS CAR CLUB – Hal Danby
“I felt I had to write to thank you for making our Dinner Dance such a huge success. People will be talking about you for months to come. Your quick wit and professionalism delighted us all. It was such a pleasure to be able to relax and enjoy the show without any “blue” material to spoil anyone’s evening.”
BRITISH AIRWAYS WORLD CARGO – Sheila Evans, Terminal Manager
“We place great importance on our annual company conference. It’s the only time in the year when we all get together to review, to plan and to motivate in preparation for the year ahead. Like most conference organisers, I am faced with the annual problem of looking for a suitable speaker. I am pleased to report that Adrian Walsh did a tremendous job, and developed first class rapport with the audience, which resulted in an excellent evening. Adrian’s quick wit, coupled with his ability to recall members of the audience are delivered in a squeaky clean fashion, produced a memorable night. “
CAR CARE PLAN LIMITED – Jonathon Heap, Director of Marketing
“Your performance after the final evening’s dinner was absolutely superb and was exactly in line with what was required. To receive a standing ovation was the accolade you deserved, and I would love you to return for future events of this type. “
LUNN POLY LIMITED – Nigel R. Cleevely, Operations Director
“We were absolutely delighted with your performance as Master of Ceremonies at the Top Rank Management Awards. Your stand-up material was well pitched for the audience and you managed to keep the whole show bang on schedule, which was particularly important given the calibre of the audience and the cabaret.“

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
