Started off great...
Ed was amazing when we met him for our first venue. Unfortunately our former venue hit us with scaffolding with 3 months to go and pretty much persuaded us to change venue. We did and needed to make sure we could still use The Original Draping services as the two venues were incredibly different. After 3 weeks of chasing Stacey and wanting to set up a vital visit to make sure the venue allowed draping. Stacey and the team pretty much ignored us until we complained. We forfeited our deposit because of their lack of communication and forcing new ideas on us - without asking for our new requirements. I hope they enjoyed the £500 for nothing.

Christmas Ball
The Original Draping Company decorated our venue for a Christmas Ball and I would highly recommend them. They provide excellent service which is friendly, and professional at all times. Moreover the communication throughout was first-rate. Thank you for helping to make our event exceptional.

Would 100% recommend these guys
The Original Draping Co totally transformed a drab school sports hall into an amazing 'Big Top' for our year 6 Circus themed leavers prom. The kids and adults alike absolutely loved it. It was superb and just like walking into a circus tent. Would 100% recommend these guys

Everyone was blown away by the transformation.
Just wanted to say a Thanks so much for the weekend. I think when you have such a plain village hall it's really difficult to visualise what it would look like. Everyone was blown away by the transformation. Thanks again.

a genuine desire to deliver the best experience
We used Ed of the Original Draping Company to decorate a village hall in Berkshire for our wedding reception. We found him very pleasant to deal with – a happy disposition and very eager to go above and beyond simply providing what was agreed (and being paid for..). Ed seemed to have a genuine desire to deliver the best experience he could for our big day and he exceeded our expectations. The Original Draping Company provided excellent value for money and indeed their quote was more than competitive. We had many compliments from guests regarding the transformation of the hall and we can’t thank Ed enough. A rare find!
