Note: We may have to set a cut-off in which we only proceed if we sell 6 or more tickets for any show.

Theatre "extras"
We tried a "Red Package" offering at an Ambassador theatre for Mary Stuart, which gave access to a lounge for pre-theatre drink & nibbles (included) and for use at the interval. This was well received, so I will be looking to do it again.

Feedback & Reviews:

Feedback on Christmas at Kew:

Hi Paul,
I wanted to say thank you so much for getting us tickets for the Christmas lights at Kew - it was spectacular and we really enjoyed the experience. There were many highlights, but the projection show onto a screen made from water over the pond was breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this to anyone (although I believe it is now sold out for this year - good work for getting them well ahead of time).
Here is one of the photos I took which you can use on the website if you want. This was called The Cathedral of Light I think.
Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.
Best Regards
Julia

Feedback on TINA the MUSICAL:
Packed with energy and all the music you love you can't help but tap your feet. The story takes you through the heartache of hard times up to Tina making it bigger than ever. A musical masterpiece with lots of laughs thrown in.

Feedback on CHESS:
Hi Paul,
I just wanted to say thanks for getting such great seats for the superb production of Chess. I felt privileged to have a seat in this short 5 week run. The staging was innovative with lots of historical video on the screens to give the production context. The cast was very special, Michael Ball as exceptional as always, such a lovely voice. And Tim Howar, seen more often as co-front man for Mike and The Mechanics, brought a flavour of rock star to his part. Cassidy Janson fresh from playing Carole King in Beautiful, stepped into Elaine Pages shoes with great confidence, delivering "I know him so well" along with Alexander Burke in her own style.
A wonderful evening out.
Many Thanks 


 
Checkout this feedback on KILLER JOE:
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the Killer Joe tickets last night, not only was the play absolutely gripping and brilliant, I got to meet the main man after the show. I have been a fan since I was 15 so it literally was a dream come true that I got to meet him. And not just that, I am a massive Gavin & Stacey fan and I also got to meet the Dave Coaches - Steffan Rhodri.
