“We have worked with Craig for many years programming local acts for the Strongbow Stage at Rockness Festival and for other events around the North East and Scotland for brands like Sky. Panoptic Events are reliable and always deliver. They fully understand the brief and have become our key partner in the region for entertainment and production. They are also really nice people!”

Julia Bruns, Our Kid Brother

“Craig McGee and Panoptic Events pulled out all the stops for our big equal pay party – ‘PayFest 2019’ – at the world famous Glasgow Barrowlands on Saturday 6th July 2019. PayFest celebrated the achievement of thousands of low paid, predominantly female workers in Glasgow and their long fight for equal pay with their employer – Glasgow City Council.  I can heartily recommend Craig and his team and I would have no hesitation in using Panoptic Events again.”

Mark Irvine, Action 4 Equality Scotland

“Excellent service cannot recommend enough. Craig has been wonderful in helping me find a suitable venue for a big cabaret /pole event I organise each year for my business. It has taken a lot of the hassle and stress out of trying to sort this on my own. He has been brilliant in sourcing the venue and other extras we may need, speaking to venue staff on my behalf and providing a speedy and professional service. Any problems I may have Craig is quick to sort it for me. A must-have for any business or individual looking for help organising an event.”

Amber Fraser-Lilley

“Thank you for all your help with booking the DJs for New Years Eve, they were brilliant.”

Katie, Malmaison, Glasgow

“Thanks so much for your help with the event on Saturday, and especially for sorting security out.”

Faith Mitchell

“Just to say thank you so much for organising last night. The caterers and bar staff were amazing and the guests were extremely happy, so that made me happy too!”

Lesley Wood

“Brilliant event by Panoptic in Glasgow last Tuesday night. From a quite bunch of 5 people to a heaving team of 70+ in minutes. These guys don’t mess about. Brilliant!
Really good mix of entertainment.
Craig knows his stuff! Love it.”

Lesley Wood
