About the Team:

With vast experience in the venues for hire market, Shehnai is a family run business with the values and caring atmosphere to match. Headed by local father and daughter team, Paris and Prianka, they, with the help of an experienced and tight knit team of 14, ensure each event is organised with the exceptional care and attention to detail they would give to their own family event.

Paris Dhillon
A well-respected local entrepreneur, Paris is a much recognised figure within Reading, working within the community for the last 20 years.

Understanding the community’s need for venues for hire that could play host to the most lavish banquets, celebrations and community events, Paris opened The Olympia Ballroom at Shehnai in April 2007. Since then The Olympia Ballroom has become a jewel in the local area with landmark events already planned for the coming year.

Prianka Dillon
Prianka is the General Manager of The Olympia Ballroom at Shehnai. High quality service and honest pricing are both important aspects of Prianka’s management of Shehnai.  She is adamant that each client not only expects the best at Shehnai, but experiences it too.

Prianka is also the Creative Director at Tuza, an on-trend event management company in the Reading and Berkshire area. With the extensive experience Prianka has gained hosting all manner of events and providing sumptuous venues for hire, Prianka has established herself as the first choice wedding planner for select clients who need something that little bit extra special.
