“This stylish quartet provides beautiful music, adding classical glamour to any event.”

Clifford Chance

Piccadilly Strings have performed at several weddings and events at Chiddingstone Castle over the past few years. Talented musicians with a varied and entertaining repertoire. We have found them a joy to work with; reliable, punctual, flexible, fun, courteous and considerate.
Piccadilly Strings have a refreshingly youthful attitude, which appeals to couples getting married at Chiddingstone Castle and are a perfect complement to a joyful celebration of marriage.

Natalie Wilkins, Weddings Coordinator at Chiddingstone Castle

"The Quartet was FANTASTIC! They really knew what and when to play, they performed our chosen songs perfectly with great timing. And overall it was amazing and our guests loved them"


Natalia Maksimova, Wedding in The Four Seasons Hotel, Hampshire

“Simply wonderful!
Easy to work with, flexible and understanding. Highly recommended!”

Francis Falconer, Pagani Showroom Open Evening

Simply perfect. A lovely addition to a lovely day. The string quartet played everything that had been requested and performed amazingly well for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding breakfast. Heartily recommended.


Stephen Marriot, Wedding in Turvey House, Bedfordshire

On time, dressed appropriately, easy to contact and deal with in advance of the event, and most importantly we and our guests loved their music. Very professional.


Rupert Williams, Wedding in Goodwood House, Chichester

"We just wanted to thank you both so much for playing so perfectly at our wedding on 7th June 2014 at Chilston Park. It was wonderful to see you both there playing when we arrived and to see that you had been entertaining our guests. We also loved your playing at the beginning of our wedding breakfast, it created a great atmosphere. Thank you and we hope to work with you again some time."

Natalie and Richard, Wedding at Chilston Park, Kent

"Thank you all for your quartet's excellent performance on Friday. The appearance, the attention to detail and the magnificent playing were just as I hoped. The bride and groom were very pleased."

Bill Steele, Wedding at Old Royal Naval College, London

"I was at a wonderful party at the Queens House Greenwich which Piccadilly Strings played at in early March this year (2012.). Their sound is wonderful and ensemble really crisp and full of Brio. The cello in particular had a rich Tortelier like timbre. They also look as if they are really having fun, which avoids the whole show looking too serious. Their Bizet was also full of zippy energy."

George Scott, Birthday Party, Queen’s House, London

"I booked Piccadilly Strings very last minute for a formal supper on advice from LMM. They were fantastic! They were friendly, flexible and their music was perfect for the occasion, a very talented group who would add sparkle to any event - will definitely book them again."


Jamie Harle, The British Army Dinner, Norfolk
