Meet The Team
Roaming Giraffe has evolved out of twelve years experience in events and hospitality, headed up by the dynamic partnership of Jack and Hen. When it comes to delivering the most detailed events planning and the best festival food, there really is no comparison.
Having trained in fine dining, Hen was lured away from the stove and encouraged to run front of house with her vivacious personality and organizational skills. She organized, staffed and executed company catered events from very large corporate parties to intimate private gatherings.Following this, Hen was snapped up by The Arts Club, Mayfair. She ran all the Club’s events, including the exclusive membership. Receiving high praise for her work, Hen continued to show her expertise in events through her work for the club’s 2011 re-launch. Hen has since been on the road with Jack bringing her skills to the world of outdoor catering, from local events to the Olympics in Hyde Park and numerous festivals. You will struggle to find a gig that has taken place in the UK over the last two years that she has not served food at. Be it serving mouth-watering food at a festival, or coffees to warm the punters at Ed Sheeran concerts. As the summer season drew to a close, Buddha Bar London sought her out to use her skills as consultant, heading up its launch and first four months of opening.Turning her hand to festival work, Hen first traded at Boomtown alongside Jack in 2013. Returning every year since, they have watched it grow into the huge, successful spectacle it is now – and Roaming Giraffe has grown with it. 2019 saw the company manage four outlets spread across the festival, which is no small feat. “
Jack’s is a dab hand at ensuring large outdoor events runs like clockwork. His skill set gives him the foresight to create a practical solution for any issue that may arise. This, coupled with his determination and work ethic, always ensures that the job is completed to the highest degree of specificity. Having trained in fine art, he has the eye to create a unique style and aesthetic for your event. Together with his interpersonal skills and creative flair, Jack can turn your wildest visions into a tangible reality.During his time raising Roaming Giraffe from when it was a mere calf of a business, Jack has enjoyed many highlights. Namely, in 2018, being asked to be the sole caterer for all of the press reporting on Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding at Windsor Castle. An undertaking that lasted four days, they built a cafe in the Pug Yard, in the heart of the castle grounds offering hot and cold food. Over 500 packed lunches were made for members of the press unable to leave their posts on the day of the wedding.
