I had the pleasure of organising a high-end 1920’s Great Gatsby Jazz evening at Epic recently and there is no doubt that they not only met, they far exceeded my expectations in every way. Having planned events for over 20 years I can honestly say that Epic is one of the most accommodating venues I have worked with – nothing is too much trouble. Their default answer to every question seems to be ‘no problem’ and they are also full of fantastic ideas which they aren’t afraid to share. The result was a truly spectacular event. It was fabulous standing at the arrival desk to see the look on our guests’ faces as they saw the room for the first time, with crushed velvet table cloths, candelabras with real lit candles and the Epic lighting; its fair to say we heard the word “wow” a lot that night. In short, I cannot recommend Epic highly enough. The venue itself is highly flexible and has some of the best vision, sound and lighting I have worked with and the staff are unfailingly polite and helpful. An epic thank you to Kris and the team.

“After recently attending two very different events at Epic, the studio and the team absolutely deserve 5 stars!!
Epic is an amazing venue space in the heart of our fine city.
The newly invested PA system is simply out of this world, the sound quality is superb and certainly the best that Norwich has to offer!
Roll on April and more live entertainment.
Keep up the great work team EPIC!!”

“Went to watch the England – Croatia game last night and have to say its was fantastic. The screens were amazing, the bar was well staffed, well stocked and efficient. Getting in and out of the venue was effortless. The security were friendly and helpful. All in all the only downside was the result but I can’t blame epic for that! Top work all round guys and gals!”

“I’d just like to thank everyone who worked so hard on our show last night. It looked absolutely superb and was great content-wise too. It felt completely at home on the BBC1 HD channel last night, going nationwide. There were lots of positive comments on Twitter and on the web during and after the show too, praising everything from the set to our brilliant presenter, Stewart. I’m really proud of what we, together with our friends at Epic produced last night, so whatever part you played, thank you. You should all feel proud too!”
Tony Campbell Assistant Editor, BBC East, Norwich 8th August 2015
“Could I simply endorse all Tony Campbell’s comments and add my thanks too. It’s always a team effort and yesterday all the elements came together. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity – it is our FA cup and I think we won!”

“Eye has been based at EPIC for the past 5 years and collaborated on a number of exciting projects, including a John Peel fundraising gig featuring the Undertones and the Fall, 3 years of Norwich’s Sound and Vision and shooting part of our children’s drama series The Secret of Eel Island in the studio. It’s a great place to do business, with flexible working space and great facilities.”
Charlie Gauvain Managing Director, Eye Film & TV 4th August 2015
“Over the past two years the Media Learning Company at City College Norwich has collaborated with Epic Studios to produce professional media content. The opportunity to work with industry standard equipment in a studio of that scale has been invaluable to the development and future aspirations of the students. It allows them to genuinely understand how production functions and by working with a variety of professionals, including Epic staff, the experience has also engendered within them a professional attitude.
The staff at Epic are helpful, knowledgeable and open to working with education in innovative ways. Testament to this, last year the Media Learning Company produced its own independent online TV show called Norwich Late & Live with the full support of Epic facilities and staff. This was an exciting and dynamic project that provided a learning opportunity beyond the bounds of a regular classroom.”
Lorraine Sutherland Learning Company, Leader Creative & Business Industries, City College Norwich 4th August 2015
“We rent offices at Epic Studios and we couldn’t ask for a better service and venue – the staff are friendly and accommodating, the location is perfect for us and we have everything we need in terms of excellent facilities. Highly recommended, keep up the good work guys!”

“Please pass on my thanks to the sound techs who worked the schools evening on Wednesday 1st July. I know my group really enjoyed their day and it was so good to work with guys who really knew what they were doing. The sound was great and the tech guys were really observant and got a great balance with the horns, guitars, keys, vocals and percussion. Thanks again”

“Thank you indeed for all that you did to make EPIC available to the school for its inaugural Jazz Nite with you. I can think of very few things I would change.”
Steffan Griffiths Headmaster, Norwich School 14th January 2015
Parents of pupils from Norwich School involved in our Norwich School / Epic Studios ‘Jazz Nite’ collaboration said:
“What an amazing night. Thank you very much to all involved in Jazz Nite, it really was a credit to everyone. Such a fantastic experience for all the students, putting on a professional event for us all to enjoy. Thank you for giving our son the opportunity to be play in SJB2, he had a fantastic night. The venue made everything seem even better than before, (which we didn’t think was possible). We hope it can be booked again. What a wonderful experience for the pupils in Aspect, to get their hands on all that equipment. We spread the word to friends and family about the live streaming, which they all enjoyed viewing.”
“What a great evening it was. The musicians were outstanding! The food and service were excellent. The venue is fantastic!”
“Thank you so much for organising the Jazz night my guests had a lovely evening and my niece and nephew were able to watch the event from Leeds and Sheffield enjoying both Olivia playing in the band and their family having a jig! Was the event recorded as well as streamed (?) because it would be a wonderful souvenir for parents.”
“I would like to say a personal thank-you to you – for your work and commitment to Jazz Nite and for inspiring the pupils to do so well. It was clear that although they had a hard “performing” feat to accomplish they all enjoyed themselves immensely.”
“The music was totally stunning – what amazing talent the school nurtures and develops and every part of the evening was a fantastic success. I do hope that between us, the 280 guests will raise a good deal of money for the two charities. Epic studios was the perfect venue for such a large gathering.”
“So, thank you again for promoting and arranging a spectacular event which I am sure will stay in the memories of the musicians and the members of School long after lessons have faded into the distance.”
“Thank you for a wonderful Jazz night. I can’t believe the musical talent that the children have which seems to be repeated year after year! It was a lovely evening and a great venue to boot.”
Norwich School 10th January 2015
