One of the best shows I think I have ever seen. The staff around were great to any question they would answer it.

A really fun afternoon tea. Blue candy floss that tasted like pineapple, eggs that are made from chocolate with a delicious mousse, sandwhiches that look like roast beef but taste of chocolate. Chocolate tea and pretty milkshake bottles in a comfortable,relaxed environment. Would definitely recommend.

It was a very good show overall, however I give 3 stars because it was something I wouldn’t go back and watch it again as well as if you have to watch only one show others are definitely worth it more e.g. Les miserables !

This show was fab! Entertaining from start to finish and having got a deal on ‘kids week’ meant it was amazing value too! Highly recommend and I would even go as far as saying we will go back again!
