Graeme, an alumnus of Richmond School and Sixth Form College, is delighted to be carrying on the tradition of employing students from his former college and is welcoming Luca Sartini as a joiner and Liam Millar as a bricklayer.


Evie's music is riding on the crest of a wave

A young Richmond singer-songwriter is riding on the crest of a wave after announcing her headline act at Liverpool's world-famous Jacaranda Club in November and becoming a regular feature on BBC Radio. Evie Wright, a 22-year-old former student at Richmond School and Sixth Form College, is gaining widespread plaudits for her music, most recently after playing her new single 'Ride the Wave' on BBC's Airwaves 2021 Festival, alongside Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, The Fratellis and Amy MacDonald.


A Night at The Musicals

Wednesday 7th July | From 7pm

On 7 July, The Black Bull will play host to the very finest of West End singers, performing an incredible immersive show. Two exceptional talents will be reigniting the passion and theatre of live music. Glenn Adamson and Martha Kirby, who recently returned from their US tour of Bat Out of Hell, will cover some of The West End’s favourite musical performances, including songs from The Jersey Boys, Les Misérables, Grease, Bat Out of Hell, Wicked and so many more crowd pleasers, all whilst you enjoy a mouth-watering 3 course seasonal menu.

A great night out for those who have missed theatre and live entertainment, this promises to be an unbeatable experience combining the atmosphere of live music with exceptional seasonal dishes crafted to perfection, and all without the hassle of travelling to the City.

The evening is a ticketed event and numbers will be limited to ensure that safe social distancing can be guaranteed at all times. Tickets are priced at £39.95, which includes a three-course meal and the live act itself, which will run during and then after dinner.

Save the expense of travel and the battle of hotel bookings and treat yourself to a spot of stardom on your doorstep!

Is Covid still an excuse for a poor customer experience?

Gather better feedback data that really reflects the experience. As customers, we only ever get asked how our experience was after the transaction has finished. Of course, in the majority of cases, the customer has had any issue they had resolved. But what about the customers who can’t get through, or can’t find what they want on the website or are on hold for hours? How are firms focussing on how those customers might feel? How are they going to reward them for their time and patience? More importantly, how are they then communicating back when messages are left?

As we move out of our current state let us see which major brands move with the times and offer a very different experience, rather than leaning on the excuses of the past.

If you need some help, we are here for you. Please contact me for a CX discussion.
