When are the girls coming back again?!

5 stars - The Sweet Arts are Highly Recommended booked The Sweet Arts for their event December 2019

“We booked The Polka Dots & The Estrellas for New Years Eve 2019 to entertain some 120 residents. There is a real buzz around the Village this morning and every piece of feedback contains the words - 'cracking', 'fantastic', 'fabulous' to name but three. An over whelming 'when are the girls coming again'!! Thank you Ella. Great entertainment, well organised & great help with how the evening should be structured for maximum impact.”


A nostalgic evening, very much enjoyed!

5 stars - The Sweet Arts are Highly Recommended booked The Sweet Arts for their event September 2019

“Well presented act by the girls in their uniforms and in their ‘Polka Dot’ dresses, with good choreography and a nice balance of songs. Both girls had very friendly personalities and good voices. They encouraged the audience to join in with some of the songs and to get up and dance, which some did. It was a nostalgic evening enjoyed very much by the audience”


Book them! You will not be disappointed!

5 stars - The Sweet Arts are Highly Recommended booked The Sweet Arts for their event September 2019

“Ella and The Sweet Arts entertained us at our joint 60th birthday party. The whole experience, from start to finish, was professional and extremely well organised. Ella took time and care to tailor the sets to our taste and to understand how we wanted our party to be. The girls are talented and their act is slick and polished. They have a wonderful rapport with their audience. We loved the ‘40s set to get everyone “in the mood” for a party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the sequinned ‘60s set and the “locomotion train” around our garden. A completely professional service and a fun experience. Book them! You will not be disappointed!”


The Sweet Arts Made the Sun Shine on Everyone!

5 stars - The Sweet Arts are Highly Recommended booked The Sweet Arts for their Wedding July 2019

“I first heard the Sweet Arts a few years ago at the NEC in Birmingham and was looking for an opportunity to book them. When my daughter got engaged, I knew this was the perfect time and we even built the theme of the wedding around them. Alongside the 1950’s vintage afternoon tea theme we also wanted live music throughout the day. All our guests commented that the Sweet Arts were amazing at the Prosecco and Ice Cream Drinks Reception. When the bride and groom came through the confetti tunnel the Sweet Arts burst into song and made the sun shine on everyone despite the thick clouds in the sky!”

D. Lasseter, Wedding, Birmingham, July 2019

A massive Thank You to you for the recommendation of the Sweet Arts for our DDay 75 weekend, such a perfect addition to the event and very well received by our visitors who would sit and enjoy the played sets throughout the day.  Whilst I walked around the arena there were lots of people enjoying the music, with plenty of positive compliments across the whole weekend, it was amazing!

K. Jarvie, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, June 2019

 “Ella was professional at all times throughout the arrangement of the booking (even when we chopped and changed things) and on the night the ladies were just SUPERB! My client loved them (as I did!) and the dresses they wore were lovely!! I wouldn't hesitate to book them again!"
L. Armes, Imperial War Museum, Duxford,

 

 “The London Gatwick and Heathrow airport set was absolutely fantastic with age old Christmas classics performed in such a unique way. The three girls (Polka Dots) looked beautiful, their tight harmonies carried throughout the shops enticing all the Christmas passengers in to the stores to see what was going on. I enjoyed this performance so much that I automatically booked the team to sing at my wedding!”
K. Walker, World Duty Free, Gatwick & Heathrow Airports

 

Thanks also for all your hard work over the weekend.  You guys were such a pleasure to work with and certainly a hit with visitors and staff alike – your willingness to interact with the customers was fantastic and really made the event.”
L. Young – Hampton Court Palace
