Classique has been working with International Artistes from around the world for over 20 years, whether they are ‘A’ list celebrities, Chart Toppers, performers from TV talent shows or Celebrity DJs, we pull together all the details – dealing with flights, transfers, accommodation and riders for all the major artists and their teams.

As the UK’s No 1 booker of celebrity artists we deal with everything for you and work constantly with management companies throughout the world, where we have built up great relationships and have the latest information about who is available and who would work best for your event.

Please contact us for any ideas for your event and we will work with you, always understanding time constraints and budgets.

Unfortunately we are unable to request autographs or personal requests and we suggest contacting the artist's own websites or fan sites. Apologies, we are also not able to ask for free / gratis / charity / reduced fee performances from any of the artists – again please contact your chosen artist through their own websites.

The majority of prices will be plus vat at the current UK rate of 20%.
