Just takes a few clicks and it’s always reliable. We used Encore every month for the past 2 years and it has been amazing.
The orchestra were a huge hit on Friday, so thanks again for your help last minute on this! Throughly impressive.
The band were great and really professional throughout the booking process and on the day.
