We used London Contemporary Voices for our corporate event at the end of last year. Their performance was absolutely brilliant - really impactful and emotive. We had loads of great feedback from many of our 500+ attendees! I would recommend LCV to anyone as they were very friendly, punctual, accommodating (when our presentations over ran and their slot was pushed back - thanks for your patience guys!), and most importantly amazing performers. Thanks for joining us for our event!
