What They Say

We were deeply impressed with the level of engagement your live interpreters had with their audience and the ability to adapt to audiences with different knowledge and needs. We realised that we were looking very much at the top end of the Living Interpretation experience.

Just to let you know that my pupils and teachers have come back absolutely buzzing after their visit to the Royal Albert Hall today. Thank you so much and do pass on our thanks to the actors who led the visit - I am told they were amazing!

The lady who played the part of the House Maid was witty and extremely entertaining. She was very believable and knowledgeable and made the whole experience very enjoyable and memorable

This was not merely a woman in costume giving a tour of the home. This was a woman IN CHARACTER as the Dickens's housemaid, and she is brilliant.

The actors playing Charles and Emma Darwin, are simply FABULOUS. They each took so much time with the children (varying age groups) as well as entertaining us adults.

I just had to send an email to say how fantastic your actor was at the Surrey Explorers Potential Plus meeting yesterday! My daughter (aged 8), husband and I were so impressed by his ability to deliver such a rich and fascinating presentation, with humour, anecdotes and such an amazing knowledge of the subject.

The actress really made the party go with a swing. We all loved her. Many many thanks!
