My son who is 4 years old loved it. It was magical to watch his face light up and brought a lump to my throat and tears in my eyes. Well done and thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my little boy’s first experience of the theatre so very magical.

I took my 3 year-old to see the show and to say that he enjoyed it is a massive understatement. In fact, he refused to leave the theatre. He cried all the way to the car because the show was finished. He was completely bewitched. I also loved it.

We came to see you in the first week of the festival with grandchildren. It was completely brilliant and they sat transfixed. It’s so reassuring to see such great work being performed and to see so many young children being taken to see live theatre. The power of theatre!

I’m sorry but I just had to write to you. I have just taken my two children to see The Snail and the Whale. It was simply beautiful! I wish I could express properly how moved I am and how captivated and enthralled my children were. We know the book so very well but have been totally blown away by this production.

Just had to write. We have been to see Room on the Broom in Basingstoke today with our three and a half year old daughter. It was fantastic!!! We all loved it. I just don’t know how you do it each time – you turn a much loved book into a brilliant stage show which also has humour. I think we smiled all the way through. It was brilliant! The cast are so talented and we loved the puppets especially the dog and the frog! Thank you for another fab show.
