“Myself and my family (2 boys) went to Santa’s Merrily Muddled Christmas show and it was outstanding. All performers put in 110% and the show was creative and immersive. The children laughed and giggled throughout. I couldn’t recommend more. We will be keeping an eye out for their other shows because this was top class and worth every penny.”
