Payne and Gunter treats guests to a special evening to ‘Dine with the Stars’


Merlin’s Madame Tussauds provided the perfect backdrop, for Payne and Gunter’s ‘Dine with the Stars’ evening in association with Merlin Events and Executive PA magazine on Thursday 16 April. Payne and Gunter has been the official caterers for The BRIT Awards for 11 consecutive years. Guests were treated to an adapted version of this year’s BRIT Awards menu for an audience of 50 PAs, corporates, and agencies.

Upon arriving, guests were taken through Madame Tussauds on the renowned ‘Spirit of London’ ride and then guided through to a Champagne reception, which included an introduction delivered by Michael Aldridge, General Manager of Events at Madame Tussauds.

Maggie Crowe OBE, Event Director of The BRIT Awards along with Adrian Carter, Event Manager of the BRIT Awards, and Bethan James, Head of Operations at Payne and Gunter, took to the stage to discuss the operations behind the scenes of the UK’s most prestigious music industry awards of the year.

Maggie Crowe commented: “We need a bespoke, one to one relationship with our caterer and that sense of bravery needed to embrace all our obscure and quirky requests. We get that from Bethan and her team.”

Bethan James added: “For us, it’s about the partnership – you have to evolve with your client. Rolling out a show-stopping menu to more than 4,000 guests in less than 75 minutes is no mean feat, but we have developed a great working relationship with The BRITs team and we understand the needs of the event. It’s great to celebrate the achievements this year at Madame Tussauds and to give guests a taste of the experience.
