“I took my 7 year old daughter and two of her friends to your show. We all thought
it was absolutely amazing. Your mix of puppetry, acting, pathos and humour brought
everything to life so vividly. I would say that it was a must for any child studying
the Tudors -

“All 150 of our Year 5 children took so much from this performance, it was presented
in such a way that all were captivated for the entire event. Educational, humorous,
appropriately pitched and very enjoyable. We will be re-
