Quality and Guest comfort 
                                        To ensure good and prompt service
To ensure that your function provides the level of quality and service that you envisage, THA suggests that you adhere to our advised staffing ratios as we have set out below for your consideration. Every event has a specific outcome that is required. We therefore advise that, in the event that you have a different staffing need, that one of our event consultants calls on you to discuss alternative staffing ratios.

Staffing ratios - to ensure good service standards are maintained
