--- ### More information about Partners in Rhyme

Classically trained as Cambridge choral scholars, we specialise in writing and performing parodies, which have since featured in international media and at the 10 Downing Street Christmas party (despite being vetoed by Mr Cameron’s aides).

From private parties to corporate events, we perform cabaret sets to amuse and delight, accompanied by piano, or a jazz trio of piano, double bass and drums or even a bigger band with London’s best brass players, depending on your requirements.

We have sung for two princes, two PMs, and at the ‘7th best party in the world’ (according to Time magazine). So have us sing for you…

The Bespoke Song

Our luxury V.I.P. 7-star service...

To make your party unforgettable - or to give an unforgettable gift - we can write you a personalised song.

Tell us some fun facts about your beloved / best friend / CEO...

We'll make it all rhyme. Set it to a favourite tune. Then voilà.

Then here's one we did at a 50th at Somerset House for a suave lawyer (whose friends tease him for trying to cultivate a 007 mystique).

And... one we did at a hen night (for a formidable lady called Clare who is finally marrying her old flame).

– Michelle Francks, 13 July 2018, corporate event in London

"Their bespoke song was utterly hilarious, really got the audience going and gave the impression that they had known all those mentioned intimately for years! It absolutely made our party."
