The Sussex String Quartet - String Quartet

This Sussex string quartet is an ensemble of professional musicians with the experience to create a unique atmosphere for your event with a piano trio option.

With a varied selection of repertoire (Mozart to Abba, Pachelbel to Queen), the string quartet is ideal for wedding ceremonies, receptions, dinners, product launches, military and mess gatherings, birthday and anniversary celebrations. The  quartet is very manoeuvrable and can be used for occasions requiring rotational music. If a particular piece of music is required, then we will be pleased to arrange it for you given enough notice. A small charge may be required to cover arrangement fees. However Hymns for wedding services, military marches for regimental mess dinners and national anthems for official toasts are provided completely free of charge.

A number of the musicians have performed across Europe & America and have provided music for members of the Royal Family, US Presidents, Prime Ministers, Politicians and Celebrities. The Quartet is also the preferred Quartet for a growing number of prestigious venues in Hampshire, Dorset, Surrey, Sussex and many other counties within the south of England.

Regularly performing at: Chewton Glen, Careys Manor & Rhinefield House (New Forest), Lainston House (Winchester), New Place (Southampton), Manor Barn & Tithe Barn (Petersfield), HMS Warrior & HMS Victory (Portsmouth), Goodwood House (West Sussex) and many more historic venues & hotels.

The group were excellent, and very professional.

Mike Thoms (September 2017)

We hired The Sussex String Quartet for our wedding on the 21st July 2017 at the Powder Mills Hotel in Battle, I cannot thank Matt and the rest of the Quartet enough for the most amazing performance for us which made our special day even more perfect, the Quartet were absolutely note perfect and really added to the atmosphere of the day, Jackie and I were blown away with how fantastic it sounded, it truly was a delight to have their music on the day and all of our guests mentioned how wonderful it was. I would highly recommend these guys, and anyone that is in two minds as to whether they can stretch their budget to have a Quartet, do it, it really does sound amazing and really adds perfection to your wedding. Thank you again to Matt and the rest of the Quartet, you really did a wonderful job for us at the wedding, it really is truly appreciated. Mr and Mrs Pope

Trevor Pope Powder Mills Hotel, Battle (August 2017)

"Just wanted to say many thanks to you all for playing at our wedding on Saturday. We really didn't have the chance to speak to you properly but thank you for helping to make our day so special. Your performance was just perfect and our day was magical."
Lucie Armstrong, December 2014

“I just wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding at Elmers Court. Your performance was perfect on such a special day for my wife and myself. I was most impressed with your rendition of ‘Sweet Child Of Mine’. As a big Guns n Roses fan, this was one part of the day I was looking forward to so much. Thank you again," Kieran & Emily, Lymington, New Forest, Hampshire
