OUR STORY
CGC Event Caterers is a long-established caterer with a distinctive British identity. With decades of experience we have built a reputation for great food, attentive service and craftsmanship. You can expect nothing less with us having been in the business over 100 years. Here are some key milestones in our history:

Craven Gilpin and Sons establish a catering business at The Mansion, Roundhay Park.

The company’s first marquee wedding was catered for in Gledhow. 3 miles from The Mansion, everything is transported by horse and cart for the wedding breakfast of Beatrice & Ernest Burrows.

The company’s longest running catering contract, Castle Grove Masonic Hall, Headingley, commences.

CGC’s largest catering contract commences at York Racecourse.

A Management Buy In prompts a name change, the business becomes CGC Events.

CGC Events is acquired by SMG Europe, worldwide leader in venue management.

BE PART OF OUR FUTURE
At the core of our business is our dedicated team, highly skilled, experienced and with a passion to learn and experiment.

Our exciting range & scale of venues and events means we’re always on the look out for sparks of talent.

HOW WE WORK
Every venue or event has its own story and we help shape the narrative to ensure it stays in the memory. We work on all scales, understanding, producing and adapting where others daren’t read on. We could write a book on it.
