“The immensely successful CSE Show package, delivered at MPC as part of the overall RAF100 celebrations, provided a significant morale boast for all personnel on base. Countless people have complemented the professional quality of all the acts that delivered an exceptionally fun show. For many, this has been their favourite military event and we managed to get in excess of 800 BFSAI personnel through the doors over the four shows. This was well beyond any expectations. In addition, our fundraising activities during the shows raised over £2,100 for Stoke Mandeville’s Neo-Natal Unit. We look forward to a return visit from the CSE team in the future.”

“Just to say last night went really well and without a hitch! The crew who came to set up early were an absolute delight and very professional. Sol and Paul were brilliant, and Laura was incredible! She really got the crowd going and everyone really enjoyed her performance – I think she was the crowd favourite of the night! … Thank you so much for all your help!”

“CSE has been a life saver to our Fiji Day event this year. In a very short space of time, CSE have managed to supply equipment and a team who have work relentless all night for the 800 guest to enjoy the Finale Fiji Day Celebration in Leicester. I remember speaking to Angie with our request and everything from then on was done by CSE. The sound man James was very helpful that the band were enjoying themselves playing all night. To Angie and your team - thank you for your amazing support and the professional and timely service that produce a successful Fiji Day Celebrations. Looking forward to be working with you in the near future.”
- Sgt. Ratu Waqavonovono, Fiji Day celebration
“Brilliant, engaging and incredibly energetic – Stephanie, Angie and Sakina are all of this and way, way more! The 2017 CSE show they put on for us was jammed with jump-up-and-dance music brilliantly stitched together by funny man Damo Clark, the evening throbbed with energy and is still talked about today! They offered us a rich variety of performance styles and delivered once again! We are already excited about what they can do for us next year!”
- Flight Sergeant J M O’Connell, RAF Marham

“…..an excellent evening celebration, produced by Combined Service Entertainment (CSE), that saw Brook Supple and Stavros Flatly support the fabulous Peter Andre and others to wow a 4,000 strong crowd. Families and Friends Day, 2016, was our biggest event ever and marked the 100th Anniversary of when flying at RAF Marham began. The show that CSE put on for us was a fitting tribute to recognise the station’s 100th birthday and to honour the sacrifice that our personnel continue to make. We are already making plans for this year’s show and are all eagerly looking forward to working with CSE again!”
- Fl. Lt. James O’Connell, RAF Marham
“On behalf of the students and staff at Gloucester School, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you [CSE], Beth [Tweddle] and Philip [Hindes] for taking the time to come out to visit the schools here. The students at Gloucester gained a lot from the question and answer sessions and very much enjoyed hearing from two Olympians.
We are very aware that living out in Germany often means that our studens miss out on such opportunities and are therefore grateful for the time taken to plan and organise the visit… I have had lots of positive comments passed to me by staff who also appreciated the chance to ask questions of Beth and Philip… Nothing was too much trouble for them.
They really were an inspiration to many and showed students just what can be achieved if they put their minds to it.”
- Mrs S, Headteacher, Gloucester School, Germany
“I just wanted to thank CSE Events and Entertainment for your help in supplying the band to the Gibraltar Officers Mess for our annual Spring Ball.
I've never known a band to be able to judge a crowd so accurately, and be so effortless in getting people of all ages and ranks on the dance floor. They were always polite, courteous and great fun to be around.
This was the last function in the Gibraltar Officers Mess at HMS Rooke as are moving to a new venue, and the boys made sure it went with a bang (even learning Greensleeves as part of our medieval theme).
I would wholeheartedly recommend CSE Events and Entertainment to ANYONE…”
- Virigina Carlin, Entertainment Member, Gibraltar Officers Mess
“I think after all of the hard work that was put in by all concerned the WFP was a resounding success and bodes well for the future.
The feedback thus far has been very good indeed, with the entertainment being well received… sincere thanks to your team who delivered a very professional event under difficult conditions.”
- CT DP C, RAF Brize Norton
