Saffron Caterers & Events
Saffron Caterers and Events brings together the creative flair and passion for food of Gareth Thomas and organisational and event management skills of Kelly Barnes.
Gareth Thomas - Director Saffron Caterers and Events was the brain child of Gareth Thomas, a leading UK chef who trained at the prestigious Leith’s Cooking School before working for culinary luminaries Gary Rhodes and Jean-Christophe Novelli. In 2008, Thomas opened his award winning restaurant – the Rose & Crown – in Highgate. Having seen a gap in the market for quality, bespoke catering, Saffron Caterers and Events was born.
With more than ten years experience in the catering industry, Thomas and his team work closely with clients to create something truly unique every time. Kelly Barnes – Events Director From humble beginnings Kelly created and ran The BBC Television Centre Tours which went on to attract 80,000 annual visitors picking up a number of prestigious awards along the way. During this time she organised many bespoke events for CBeebies, CBBC, Doctor Who, Eastenders and London Open House to name a few.
In her “spare time” Kelly performed with one of the country’s leading function bands and has performed at hundreds of weddings and functions at some of the most prestigious events and venues in the UK.
