About Us

Purple Pumpkin Catering based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent has Head Chef Sean Taylor at the helm. Although he has 30 years of cooking and catering under his belt, he still treats every event, irrespective of size or type with the same enthusiasm and professionalism.

Initially he honed his craft travelling the world and working for the Who’s Who of Music and was on hand to cater for Kylie Minogue, ZZ Top, Barry Manilow, Aerosmith, Elvis Costello, Zucchero and Take That. Not a bad list for starters!

Work then followed through the Admirable Crichton for Prince Charles where he catered to the Prince’s private parties at palaces and abroad. There was also a wedding in Gstaad, Switzerland!

Top stars and Royalty! Where next? It was back to the UK where Sean set up Purple Pumpkin to provide top class catering for events in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and South London.

Sean is certainly energetic and in 2012 Sean was charged with providing the catering staff, the chef and Front of House for the Olympic Broadcasting Services. The food had to be of the highest quality and Sean was responsible for all areas of FOH at the relevant compound restaurants at the Olympic site.

Purple Pumpkin can organise your whole event, from marquees, disco’s, live music, ice-bar, photo booths, selfie mirror’s etc, leaving you with nothing to do but enjoy your event, hassle free.

We can do anything from weddings to funerals and we tailor make everything for you.
