Event Manager, Jennifer Ramsay, provides some insight as to how Payne & Gunter and Royal Museums Greenwich work together to deliver delicious catering for a variety of occasions, from luxury weddings to corporate events.
Jennifer has been with Royal Museums Greenwich for over two and half years, having been at the National Theatre for three years beforehand. With a background in catering, she knows her amuse bouche from her aperitif and that tasty food and drink is an essential ingredient for a successful event.
Jennifer started out as an event planner and now heads up the operations team, who deliver hundreds of events every year at Royal Museums Greenwich. A big part of these bespoke and large events is the catering, so Payne & Gunter act as an extension of Jennifer’s team to make sure guests’ experiences are top quality.
Here is part of a recent interview:
Q: How do you work with Payne & Gunter and how do they assist you in delivering exceptional events?
JR: ‘We’ve been partnering with Payne & Gunter for a long time now, so they really understand our venues and the restrictions within them. This makes planning and delivering events much easier and ensures that they run smoothly. We know the team and they know us, so working together is a seamless partnership that means the clients’ visions are realised, and events are memorable for all the right reasons.’
Q: Could you let us know a little bit about the Royal Museum Greenwich venues’ history?
JR: ‘Our venues are steeped in history, and provide individual and unique surroundings for special and momentous events. They are really versatile and effectively blank canvasses that are great places to host unique events. They are all situated within beautiful grounds, a UNESCO heritage site that offers variety depending on whether you have a large-scale private event or a once-in-a-lifetime occasion in mind.'
