Do the prices include travel?

Yes! In most cases the prices you see here are relevant for most places in the northwest, some areas may incur a slight extra charge and some dates may incur an extra charge. If your event is a wedding and you are booking the quartet for a Church ceremony followed by the reception venue then again travel is included between the venues as long as they are not more than 10 miles apart. Any extra will be charged for.

Can the string quartet learn my favourite song?

Yes! As long as the sheet music is available for the song you require then they can learn the song. There is no charge for learning one song however if you would like the quartet to learn a few new ones then we make a small charge to cover the cost of the sheet music. We say £4 per song overs this. It is also worth remembering the song you want the quartet to play might not sound like the original or how you thought as some songs don’t transfer brilliantly to string instruments, perhaps look on YouTube to see if a quartet has done the song you want before and are you happy with the way it sounds?

What will the quartet wear?

Generally the attire is smart black or formal dresses and suits can be worn by request

What will the quartet need from me?

You will need to provide 4 x banqueting chairs. If you have booked chair covers for your event then don’t forget to book another 4 so the chairs don’t look out of place. Somewhere safe for the musicians music cases to be stored whilst they are playing will also be required.

Do you supply smaller String groups?

Yes! We also supply solo violinists, string duos and string trios, contact us for prices.

Due to the different types of events the quartet get booked for, there are different ways we price the hire to give you a better understanding of what length of time will cover what section of an event.
