The Covent Garden String Quartet is a London based group, available for hire, to add a touch of elegance to your event, wedding, civil partnership, or any other special celebration.

We are qualified professional musicians and have many years' experience playing at a wide range of events and venues in London, Kent, Surrey and around the South East. We specialize in providing music for wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships, parties, anniversaries, charity benefits and corporate events.

We have performed at many prestigious venues such as Kensington Palace, Blenheim Palace, Hampton Court, The Tate Gallery, The Natural History Museum, Tower Bridge, and top London hotels including Claridges, the Savoy and the Lanesborough. The quartet has had residencies in Sardinia, Norway and Morocco and we have also played on boats, barns and even on Blackpool pier.

The string quartet's extensive live music experience includes recording for pop artists such as Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave for MTV, film soundtracks and many appearances as backing strings on ITV and the BBC - for example, GMTV, the National Lottery.


We have been 'Highly Commended' in the Best Wedding Ceremony Act category for the London region at the 2020 Event Entertainment Awards. Presented by, the Event Entertainment Awards recognises the best in the event entertainment industry across the UK.
