Thank you for your review Gill. And thank you for recognising that most of our staff are volunteers. They are so professional in their approach that sometimes customers don't realise. We look forward to seeing you again when you're down this way.

Hi Melanie, thank you so much for this lovely review. We are really pleased with History Boys which was quite a struggle to cast. Your review is much appreciated by the people, many of them volunteers, who put such hard work into our productions.
