Hello Gary,
I wanted to thank you for such a great show everyone enjoyed it and I especially loved seeing the children so enthralled and laughing their faces were priceless. I had a wonderful 60th Birthday and have been having fun all week. Thanks again for all your hard work and professionalism. I will be recommending you to my friends, all my grandsons said they wanted you for their parties and my great nephew said it was the best party he had ever been to praise from a six year old who is constantly at parties.
Best regards,
Lucy

Sorry it has taken me so long, but thank you very much for the fabulous Punch and Judy Show you did for us last week at Penhill Playgroup. It was thoroughly enjoyed by adults and children alike and it was lovely to see the children laughing so much - a great way to end the term!
I hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year and I'm sure we'll see you again next December!

Dear Prof. Dill,
 
                    Just to thank you so much for another wonderful show at Farnham library. We had many appreciative comments, but one kind lady took the trouble to write an e.mail to the library. She wrote “Please pass my thanks to the Friends of Farnham Library for a great event this morning – storytelling, colouring competition, magic and Punch and Judy – all very well organised. My four year old granddaughter absolutely loved it! It was her first visit to the library and I’m sure she’ll be back.”   
                   
Warmest good wishes for the rest of the summer season.

Dear Professor Dill
 
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such an amazing performance at our wedding reception last Friday.
With only 11 children and 20 adults you had a tough audience but you were on time, full of energy and everyone loved your show. It really picked up the event, the children were laughing and shouting, all ages. I cannot thank you enough and would recommend you without hesitation.

Kind Regards

Dear Gari,

I wanted to write to send my huge thanks for today's performance. I can very confidently say that the children had a riot! The magic was spectacular and it was a real joy to watch them so enthused by such a traditional form of entertainment. They also learnt lots from your carefully pitched lesson on puppet shows through history. 

We will certainly be in touch when we get around to planning next year's Victorians/Toys topic.  
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like a testimonial. 

Thanks again

Dear Prof. Dill,
 
          The Friends of Farnham Library have just held their first committee meeting of the new term and voted overwhelmingly for a repeat performance of your show at Farnham Library.  Your recent summer show this year was judged an outstanding success and very much enjoyed by everyone. The date proposed for next year is Saturday, 23rd July 2016, the first Saturday after the state schools break up. We all very much hope that you will be free on this date to entertain us all again.  We should be glad if you could confirm this booking.
 
                    With warmest good wishes and many thanks for your support.

Hi Gari

Just a quick thank you for doing a wonderful Punch and Judy performance for Alice's birthday party on Saturday. They all loved it and of course the balloon animals afterwards. Everybody thought you and the show were great and I will pass your card around as much as possible. I am thinking about putting together a website for children’s stuff round here and will make sure you are on there. 

Thanks again

Victoria, Tim, Charlie and Alice

Dear Prof Dill,

Just wanted to say a big thank you for today, i was a little busy with the party organising so didn't get a chance to watch the show very much myself but there was no denying from the cheering and shouting from the children that they were completely enthralled by your show! It was all Annabelle could talk about when she got home and lots of the other children and parents said how great you were. I've attached a couple of pics for you :) I would certainly not hesitate in booking you again and recommending you to friends and family.

Thanks so much for making my daughters birthday party one to remember.

Kind Regards,
Angela

Dear Prof Dill, 
I simply cannot thank you enough for everything you did on Saturday for Aoife’s party. It was a little scary booking entertainment without any recommendations or having seen your show, but you surpassed all expectations! You have a wonderful gift; all 15 of the children, plus many of their very very small siblings, were totally captivated for the entire performance. I can’t tell you how happy it made both myself and John to watch our daughter enjoy her first big birthday party so much, we are so very grateful to you. You are a joy to watch.
I hope one day we will see you again.
 
Have a lovely Christmas!
 
Best wishes,
Natalie Hick

Hi Professor Dill!

I would like to say a huge thank you again for coming to do my son's 6th birthday party yesterday. Your show's were absolutely amazing! All the children loved it, they shouted and laughed so loud and hard. I heard one of them ask if there was going to be another show! All the adults likewise enjoyed themselves, it really was superb family fun for all. I couldn't recommend you highly enough 10/10 for performance and value for money. Thank you very much for making a brilliant party.

Thanks again for a fantastic show.
The children were buzzing so I asked them what the would rather have : a Punch and Judy show or 45 minutes on their X-box, and I'm sure you will be as pleased as I was to hear they said Punch and Judy!
See you next year!

Dear Dill 

Finally now that half term is finished I have a moment to write and thank you for the fabulous Punch & Judy show you did for Dominic’s 5th birthday party on 15 February. Dominic was enthralled with the magic and the puppets, as were his little friends and I’ve had lots of very positive comments from the parents who watched the show. It is very had to keep 20 five year olds entertained for 45-50 minutes but your show certainly did that! And thank you for patiently creating all those balloon figures for the children (more than once for quite a few of the children!) – they had such good fun with them.
 
Thanks again and very best wishes

Hi Professor Dill
 
I just wanted to say thank you for the show last Saturday.  The kids really enjoyed it and it was definitely the easiest party I’ve organised!  I think the fact that all the children stayed sitting down and no one wandered off shows how much they liked it.  Thomas really liked it and drew a picture of your Punch and Judy show yesterday so he would remember it forever!
 
Thanks again and best wishes for Christmas and 2014.

Hi Dill
Thank you so much for coming and doing a show for Leo's 4th birthday, he thoroughly enjoyed it, as did all the children and adults! I was amazed how gripped they all were, they didn't even notice the rain and thunder that had started!

However I do have a complaint, I am absolutely sick of watching Leo perform his own puppet shows!! I think he might be your competitor in 15 years!

Thank you, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you, the show was excellent as was the whole service from booking, to you reassuring call the day before was just excellent. I have attached some pictures.
Thanks so much.
