Bloomsbury were approached to supply live music for the international banking and wealth management company, Investec UK.

Event at Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire

Bloomsbury Event Group Event For Investec UK Explained.

19th November 2023

Investec UK hold their annual client parties at beautiful locations across the country. This year Investec UK chose the beautiful and unique Arley Hall & Gardens situated in Cheshire. It is one of the most attractive stately homes in the North West and for many of us, we will recognise this iconic location as the home of Tom Shelby from the BBC hit drama, Peaky Blinders.

Our brief was to provide stylish and sophisticated musicians who could be sympathetic with the demographic and accompany the client party with atmospheric music. We were mindful to create a live playlist which covered a mix of styles but wasn’t intruding for the guests with volume levels.

The client event was held over two days. We provided a solo pianist to perform in the drawing room alongside our Bloomsbury jazz who performed in the stunning hallway by the magnificent staircase. All our musicians were suited and booted, a nice subtle reference to the 1900s crime drama!

“Musicians were great and very accommodating given that we had to switch location/timings both days somewhat, due to the weather which was much appreciated! The atmosphere created in the piano room by Ollie and the band while guests were making their way around the house was great. Excellent job by all of them – thank you very much!”
