The 1879 team were fantastic and I would be grateful if you can pass my thanks on to them all. I’ve seen a few events set up at the Bridges now but none as slick and professional as that. The food was also excellent and as far as the service was concerned we could have been at the SOL! Already looking forward to planning our next event with 1879.

The food was outstanding and I received so many compliments about the quality and also the service. Could you please pass on my thanks to every single person who was there yesterday for their help with everything and as ever, compliments to the chef!

A huge congratulations and thank you to all the 1879 team for all the hard work and dedication you put in to this year’s Newcastle Pride. Your planning was second to none, and the change of site the week before the event, did not phase you. The management and communication from the top down was excellent and your creative ideas really added an extra element to the event. We look forward to working with you in the near future.
