“Our son and his wife were married in Greece 2weeks ago, we organised a party back in the UK on their return for 200 family and friends.
We were very fortunate to be able to book Matthew Winchester, he was absolutely brilliant. He performed from 7pm to half past midnight. He did the DJ bit, but best of all he sang, which was a cross between, Luther Vandross, Barry White, Stevie Wonder and The Drifters. Everyone from the twenty year olds to the eighty year olds loved him. The dance floor was full. He is a lovely lovely man.
He did lots of requests and a memorable first dance for the bride and groom.
Us up here in the north are racking our brains to think of another occasion we can organise so that we can book him again.
One of the staff behind the bar at the venue is thinking of re-marrying just so that she can have Matt perform at her reception, problem is that she hasn’t got a fella in mind!
Matthew is a fantastic performer, he certainly didn’t disappoint, can’t believe someone so polished was available to us, he should be at the 02 Arena!”

“Luther Vandross tribute act, Matthew Winchester, was on backing tracks, however for a singer as truly outstanding as Mr Winchester, a live band would suit him better.”
– Mark Richie – UK Cabaret Magazine
“Big Foot Events made booking our 40th wedding anniversary entertainment easy and stress free. The planning and event went smoothly. Everyone said how amazing Matthew Winchester was, he really made our event truly magical. – Please pass on our thanks.”

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!

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.

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.
