Event organiser about Entertainment from The Dreaming Space of:

Live Music, Cirque du Flirt Acro Show, Fire Show, culminating in an Outdoor Cinema experience. 

I wanted to pass on our thanks and congratulations for an excellent night. We’ve been contacted by a lot of our members to say thanks and to express how much they enjoyed the night and especially your performances.

In addition to all the praise from our members, I personally wanted to thank you for being so talented, professional and easy to deal with.  It all far surpassed anything that I had expected (… and my expectations were pretty high!).

I wondered aloud with our Committee how we might top the night next year and they simply said to ‘get them back again’.

A parent about our children’s entertainers:

“I was in awe and overjoyed to see this slim, excitable individual waggle into our lives as if by magic on a unicycle into a throng of equally excited and happy children.
It is so often me who is trying to bring joy to others that I had totally forgotten the childish joy of excitement that this brought to me.
To  have his words resonate with my heart, how we must keep on trying to use our creative energy to make this world a better place was beautiful. I am deeply grateful for your messenger being the harbinger of such joy. ….lovely lovely lovely…
He was summit of a mountain to which our joy had climbed playing with knives and kids on his shoulders. 
At the end all of the children followed him like the pied piper of Hamlin it was spectacular. Thank you.
