I just wanted to say an enormous thank you to you all for what was an absolutely magical day. Your staff were just simply amazing and without them our day would not have been what it was which was better than perfect. The venue was stunning but it was the staff who were just fantastic. Everyone has commented upon how professional and amazing the staff were! I just wanted to say thank you.

I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and your staff for helping us to hold an amazing fundraiser last night.

Your staff were so fantastic. Everyone was so helpful and couldnt do enough for us. They were so caring and completely went out of their way. But everyone had a brilliant night, the venue was amazing and all of your staff deserve a huge pat on the back.

Thank you so much.
Best wishes,

— Gemma, Morgans Rising Star

I'm back to work now and wanted to pass on that I am hearing great feedback from Friday and the Day of Celebration,

The Staff and Students have passed on about how beautiful the Assembly Rooms is as a venue, along with the organisation of the day, they personally thanked Dean and Brian for the support on the day, they said everyone was very accommodating!

I am so pleased all the feedback coming back is so good!

I hope that in the future when discussing venues Assembly Rooms will now be top of list so we can use you for future events, proms etc,

Thanks again !!!

— Laura, Day of Celebration

I would like to thank you and all of your staff for an amazing night on Friday 27th May.

I could not go without saying this as over the last few years we have tried different venues and not one (including the local ‘posh’ hotels) has matched up to the quality, service, welcome and friendliness that The Assembly Rooms provides. I would very much like you to pass on my gratefulness to your on duty staff as I know they have a hard job especially when students are old enough to drink, however, they have continuously given pleasant and courteous service and I would like to say special thanks for that.

I would very much like to rebook the Assembly Rooms for next year and will be in touch with a date asap.

On a personal note - this is a stressful event each year for me to organise but you all made it that much easier, thank you!

— St Joseph's Sixth Form Ball

I was in charge of the event we had with you last Tuesday and just wanted to say thanks to the team for the extra support and assistance they provided. We had a number of last minute changes that were dealt with quickly and a student who was unwell, staff helped us with this situation too.

— Holocaust Educational Trust Event

A big thanks to you Laura and all the staff for last Thursday – I have had loads of really positive feedback from the women who were there, it has certainly been a popular event. We’re already pencilling it in for next year – so hopefully we can also use your rooms again!

Kind regards

— Claire, Tait Walker, National Chocolate Week Event

I would like to thank you for everything in the run up to the event and on the day. Your professionalism and support were second to none and it was a pleasure working with you.

The weekend went off so smoothly. Appreciation to Dean who looked after us so well and also to Laura for being so patient with the last minute changes to the dinner. I know there are a number of people who I don't see who work very hard to make it happen so please pass on our thanks to them. The dinner went off very well and it was nice to meet the owner who was doing the rounds on the evening.

As ever the food, wine and service were exemplary and it was also good to see so much money being raised at the auction.

It was a good day thanks Emily. Your people were helpful during the function, attentive and quick. The bar people were extremely good, professional and helpful and the whole day went down very well.

We will certainly be looking at a return visit for our DNA training next year.

Everything was perfect yesterday, as it always is when we have events at the Assembly Rooms. I had a long chat with the owner. He was very sweet, hovering around to make sure the guests were well looked after.

The room looked beautiful and all the staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. We were really appreciative of you putting on the extra drinks. Our guests fed back some really nice comments about the venue.

— Newcastle University

Our evening was fantastic! Could not have hoped for more. Everyone loved the special menu and keep telling me how much they enjoyed the meal. Plaudits for the pie, roast potatoes and lemon posset.
Thank you so much to the chef for cooking our choice.

The Mayor and Sheriff said they thought the Assembly rooms was an excellent venue.

Your staff also received great reviews everyone thought they were very helpful and friendly.
