“Conker Events helped design, plan and run our annual fundraiser for our urban Community based charity.
Her professionalism, eye for detail and ability to engage and negotiate with multiple stakeholders and third parties gave me the confidence that the event was going to be a complete success, with nothing overlooked.
She is highly and equally skilled in the practical, the commercial and the aesthetic, and is as comfortable designing the theme and branding of the event, commenting on the film edit, negotiating with suppliers or working with a diverse organising committee.
She is unflappable, and her calm, thoughtful approach is highly effective at drawing all players in to achieve the event goal.
Our fundraising party was a complete success and all guests commented on the quality of the evening, the slickness of the organisation and the overall ‘wow’ factor that Jessica was able to create.
Jessica is a delight to work with and I could not recommend her more strongly.”
Andi Britt | Junction Community Trust
“Our annual fundraising event plays a very important part in both raising a significant proportion of our annual budget and developing new relationships with supporters. There is a lot riding on it.
Jessica at Conker Events has supported us in delivering this event for the last three years and has proved to be an incredibly thorough, reliable and creative partner in the process. She has introduced new solutions to key challenges in running such a large scale event, some of which we believe have increased our revenue.
On the night, Jessica is always a remarkably reassuring, calm and generous presence despite the stresses that such a complex and tightly timed event bring.”
Jo Rice | Managing Director, Resurgo Trust
“Conker Events organised a brilliant fundraiser for Resco. Jessica was excellent from the early stages of planning right through to the day itself.
She offered great creative input and sourced everything needed to produce an atmospheric evening that everyone will remember for years. She is very well organised and communicated effectively with our staff.
Conker Events enabled us to raise more money for our charity than we could have hoped to on our own. We would certainly use them again.”
Max Manners | Resco
“Chrissy and I are very grateful to you for all your hard work.
I very much appreciated that you had plainly studied all the information I’d sent you about the suppliers and the running of the day and asked only intelligent questions – this meant I could be confident that things would run smoothly. On the day itself you always seemed to be at the right place at the right time.
If you had any problems or issues during the day, I wasn’t aware of them which meant that we were all free to enjoy ourselves – the day seemed to go brilliantly well and Maddie could not have been happier.”
Michael Hart | Father of the Bride
“Conker Events organised our perfect winter wedding!
We were so disorganised but Conker Events came in and completely took control – she even had to tell us where her thank you present was that we’d bought for her! We were completely guided through the organisation process so that we knew exactly what needed to be done from our side without stressing us out and actually made it so much more enjoyable than we’d imagined.
Jessica was amazing at using her creativity to realise our ideas but within our budget. We couldn’t have done it without her.”

“Conker Events organised my ‘Big 6-Oh!’ and what an amazing job they did!
The marquee was completely transformed to the 1960s and the event from set up to pack down was seamless. I received so many compliments from my guests but it was all down to Conker Events- I can’t take any credit.
Conker Events took all the stress of hosting an event at home away from me and made it such an enjoyable experience- I wish I could do it every weekend!”
“My baby shower was a complete success and that was down to Conker Events. All I did was turn up on the day and everything I asked for was delivered (not the baby thank goodness!).
Thank you Conker Events.”
“Thank you so much for organising such a successful launch of Merlin House. Your efficiency, manner and ideas made it a memorable event and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.”
James Matthews | Whitman and Co.
“From a standing start only a few weeks ago and a budget of zero to build from, what you were able to achieve was simply transformational.
The clever use of dramatic palm fronds and small wild animal models lifted the table with colour and elevation and dramatically “lifted” the overall impact of the room and stamped our mark on the venue.
Seriously, your clever use of materials for such a small amount was a great attribute. With very grateful thanks.”
Mike Conway | GoMad
I thoroughly recommend Jessica Helyar from Conker Events.
Creative and fun, with a flair for fresh and exciting ideas to make an event sparkle, Conker Events took all the strain from organising a large fundraising event.
The attention to detail, allied with cool calm heads under pressure, ensured not only that working with Conker Events was extremely enjoyable but also that the event was a huge success.
