"Incredible Christmas show at The Hive this year! Electric atmosphere, really made the kids laugh for the whole time! Everyone loved it - can't wait for next year's show, and will definitely be coming to see him again throughout the year!" - AJ Durling, audience member 2017

"Wow! Amazing show! My daughter and friend loved every minute. Very festive, can’t wait to book for next year!!"- A. Pipes, audience member 2017

"Fun, laughter and festive cheer. My 6 year old really enjoyed the show. Laughed, cheered and joined in wholeheartedly. Great show, thank you." - A. Gibb, audience member 2017

"Your show was amazing on Saturday - when can we book for next year? Thank you so much, you have made my daughter's year." - C. Hardy, audience member 2017

"We've just booked, we are looking forward to our third show! It's definitely the highlight of our Christmas each year for our kiddies!" A. Malone, audience member 2015 and 2014

"I took my niece (aged 7), and my nephew (aged 5), to see the Christmas show. The were mesmerised. When they've been to the panto previously they've been petrified by the 'baddy'. None of that with The Magic Hatter! It's the longest time I've seen both children sit still and stay engaged! Excellent value for money." D. Wakefield, audience member 2015

"Fantastic Christmas show. Very festive, kids were enthralled, loved every minute. Great value. Will be booking again next year." V. Kendall, audience member 2013

"We had a great time. Fantastic show for the whole family. Our little girl was totally thrilled by being called onto stage. We have been going to the show for the past three years and it sort of has become part of our Christmas routine. We do love the whole show, but frostbite (the penguin) is certainly one of our favourites. My little girls eyes were so filled with wonder, I nearly cried.  Well done and thank you very much for everything including keeping it affordable." C. Thomas and family, audience members 2013

"Polished and professional, a benchmark in children's stage magic shows." M. Foster, audience member 2011 and 2012

"A superb alternative to a Christmas panto. We were sat on the front row and our boys haven't stopped talking about the show!" P. Martin, audience member 2012

"Fantastic entertainment - we all loved it. All the kids had different favourite moments from the show, and we grown-ups really appreciated the atmosphere of good, clean fun - all jokes and tricks were perfectly judged. We'll be going again!" S. Sketchley, audience member 2012
