“Thank you for putting together such a fantastic party for my recent 50th birthday celebration. You made my dream of a pirate party come to life, with brilliant scene setting and props and, of course, incredible costumes.”
Beth van der Loeff

“I have worked with Jo Pilkington and the First Scene team on three fundraisers and have found the experiences to be brilliant! The pre-event advice, the organisation and the set up of each event has been second to none. The event themes have been both thoughtful and fun, with added touches that demonstrate an absolute attention to detail. They clearly love what they do and their energy and commitment to ensuring our events are successful is so very much appreciated. I cannot recommend Jo and the First Scene team more highly.”
