Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Dinner

“We hosted our Annual Business Dinner at the iconic Victoria Warehouse in May 2018. Manchester Camerata provided an amazing quartet, who played a stunning, upbeat version of the Manchester Anthems, whilst our 600 guests took their seats at the tables. It set the scene perfectly and the contrast between the classical element and the Manchester Anthems they played worked brilliantly. I’d highly recommend them to add the edge to a corporate event.”

Stella Bowdell, Director of Membership & Events – Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce
