The most important part of any of our events is of course our customers and this is what they have said........

Carols Simply Vintage Events - 70's night. The whole experience was more fun than we could have imagined, and although we were a couple, the ambience was more like a wedding where everyone was dancing with everyone. (At one point only two of the 80 or so guests were seated!!) Decent fish and chips and outrageous musical reminders of songs we'd forgotten meant we were toe-tapping all night ......and a few days later!
Carols' (keyboards/vocals) voice is a mix of powerful and gorgeous bluesy tones: lovely control and so well complimented by by the exceptional and versatile talent of Mick on guitar and elec-trickery!
We can only thank you both for an exceptional evening, and stress how much we are looking forward to your next event. Peter & Kiki. X.

Thanks to Carol and her team for organising a fantastic event for Kenilworth Wardens Cricket Club’s 75th party. The organisation and communication was spot on from start to finish and all the members thoroughly enjoyed the night. So much so that we’re already booking our next one! Cheers

Hi Carol and Mick, just a line to tell you how much we, me and Di, and our friends enjoyed your 70's evening we came to recently; it was a really good atmosphere and very entertaining. We all thought you and Mick sang a great cross section of songs and performed them extremely well. Also, may I say how good the food was and the quiz was very entertaining too. We look forward to attending more of your evenings.
Love, Tony and Di Thurlbeck. Bishops Itchington

Hello Carol,
What a brilliant night we had at your recent 1940's evening! 80 likeminded people, most of them donning 1940's fashions (and looking superb) joined in the entertainment. Live 1940's music from the Dolby's. 1940's Big band vinyl music. Swing Dancing, Rock 'n' Roll, a forties quiz, a good old English Fish and Chip supper and all for a tenner! Can't grumble at that! All-in-all an enormously successful evening, can't wait for the next. Well done to the organisers!

Had such an amazing time at the 40s event in Burton Green, everyone was dressed up and in the 40s zone which was just fabulous!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the old tunes, getting involved with the dancing and stuffing my face with fish and chips!

Such a fantastic night, hosted by two amazingly talented people, all for £10! Bargain!
Will most definitely without a doubt, be attending one of Carol's events again, they are just not to be missed! Roll on the 50s night!

The room was alive throughout the event. Carols talent and infectious personality are qualities rarely seen and are key to everything she does.

Carol is a lady who demonstrates key understanding of her audience. The events and activities she offers are well organised, planned and structured and give everyone a chance to join in. Her eye for detail and accuracy are ever evident by the staging and props she brings with her. I have and will recommend Carol's services to others.

Dear Carol

I am just writing to thank you for a lovely Christmas party. The food was beautiful and we all thought the entertainment was outstanding. The victorian fireplace setting was really different and very authentic. This is the way Christmasses should be.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year

Carol I just wanted to say what a great time we had at your Murder Mystery Play The Mystery of Saxby Hall. It kept us guessing right to the end and the final twist was brilliant. Please let me know when you do another, we all enjoyed it so much.

Dear Carol

I felt I had to write and thank you for the wonderful day we had here in Hampton Magna. The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious, the music was lovely and all the decorations made for a truly vintage atmosphere. You were all very professional and it was hard to pick a favourite part of the event.

Thanks once again Betty Pettle -  Hampton Magna

When Dave and I were Mayor and Mayoress of Kenilworth we were fortunate enough to be invited to the opening launch of the Play "We'll Meet Again"

The play itself was absolutely brilliant! There were emotional parts and parts that made you laugh. The actors were very professional in thier roles, it gave you a good insight into the war years nd of all the hardships and problems people had to go through.

We would highly recomend this play to everyone. We still talk about it and given the chance we would like to see it again.

Dear Carol


I am so pleased that we were able accomodate your play We'll Meet Again here at the Hippodrome. The time of year made it all the more poignant and the references to local places and people meant that it really connected with the audience. It was especially beneficial to our schools who came in at the end of production. Giving out rations was a master stroke. So glad it was a success. Please let me know if and when you write another.
