None of these comments are faked or written by a Victorian Lady! We frequently receive verbal and written feedback from our presentations. In nearly ten years we have never had a bad review. I shouldn't tempt fate, but I'm being encouraged to think that maybe, sometimes, you can
please all of the people all of the time (as long as they're interested)!

NEATH ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY
Just a little note to thank you for giving us a splendid show. I know that everyone thoroughly enjoyed it - the beautiful costumes and your humorous and informative commentary. It is a lot of work for you but we really did appreciate it and so, on behalf of the Neath Antiquarian Society, may I thank you formally and I know you will hear more from our members. I also visited your impressive website. It really is good and does you proud.
ABERCRAVE WOMEN'S INSTITUTE
Very many thanks for the great entertainment you provided for Abercrave W.I's group meeting on 13th May. Everyone who was involved in the fashion show thoroughly enjoyed the chance to dress up in the amazing costumes that June has made. All those who were in the audience were very enthusiastic about the whole programme and Gail's performance as the maid was a great talking point. You also provided us with a great insight into that era, in a humourous and informative way. We will certainly be passing your name on to other groups that we are in contact with if they need event speakers.
