  • Testimonials
  • "The Talking Shop is one of the most professional outfits we use. The studios are kitted out just as we want them, they are well-organised, always very willing to help and understand the importance of making sure everything goes all right on the night. I just get the feeling they understand how important the viewed nights are to the researchers and their clients."
    QA, Managing Director, Join the Dots

Really helpful, proactive, extremely professional, ensured that the entire complicated process ran smoothly and kept us topped up with tea and coffee! Thanks for the chocolates and bottles of sparkling wine – what a treat! We’ll definitely be recommending your facility."
