"The opening ceremony of our Technology Centre in Stockton-on Tees went extremely well and many of the plaudits are thanks to Uncle Brian’s entertainers. The Small Top Circus arrived as scheduled and carried out their duties with unflappable calm. John Roberts, the caricaturist was especially in demand by our clients, who were able to take away a memento of the afternoon. The jazz band, Roger Bird, was excellent both on 23rd February 1999 and on the 25th. At 6pm it was the fireworks, which were spectacular. Both the fireworks and the music had been arranged during the afternoon on our car park in howling wind, with no need for any guidance by ourselves. It was a perfect end to a terrific afternoon. Many thanks for arranging and engaging the entertainment. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to my colleagues, in fact I have passed your details on to a couple of our clients who attended the Opening."

"Information and Fun Family Day 24 October 1994 at the Spa Complex, Scarborough I am writing to say a big thank you to you for coming along and entertaining everybody at the above Fun Day. It was a tremendous success and I know from the feedback I have received it was enjoyed by everyone who attended it. You were very well received by the children and young people and they appreciated receiving their own 'personal balloon model'. I have been asked if I could be prepared to make the Fun Day an annual event. If I do, I hope we can plan something for next year. Thank you once again. your help was very much appreciated."

"Re: Disco Carriers Arms 10/02/2007 I want to thank you for a great party. The kids really enjoyed it, the music was good and Thomas had a fantastic time. I wish it could have been longer and then we could have had more time for puppet shows etc. I will always keep you in mind for any future parties / events. I can't send a picture as I don't have the permission of any of the other children's parents, however all the pictures show the children laughing and dancing and generally being rowdy, just as a 7 year old party should be! Thanks again"

"You have prompted me to tell you what a wonderful party Sophie and Samantha had last Friday. I have been meaning to write to you and your email has made mw do so! You were very well organised and the party ran so smoothly for the whole 2 hours. The children were mesmerised with your magic tricks and as I am sure you were aware were very happy to join in and guess what you were doing!! The party games and fun dancing were great! We couldn't have expected more from you. The children had a wonderful time and were thoroughly entertained from the minute they arrived to the minute they left. Many thanks for a fabulous party and I hope to see you again for our daughter's party next year! Kind regards"

"I am writing on behalf of the Bramhope Flower Show to express our thanks for the excellent entertainment provided by you on Sunday 5th 1999. The entertainment provided by yourself and Jessica Jeep was truly professional and hit the right note. You were kind and patient with the children and very funny. The children were enchanted with Jessica Jeep. On a very hot day and working in full sunlight you were in no way deterred and had the children eating out of your hand (and a good many adults too, myself included). We all thought the show was very good value and will certainly be using your company for our future Flower Shows."

It was a magnificent day and some families were reluctant to leave. You certainly did a splendid job and as far as we were concerned it was money well spent. A little boy who attends the school where my wife works as a school secretary said "me mam will be getting him for our Abigail's birthday party". Knowing the little boy concerned I think you can accept that comment as the ultimate compliment! Once again thank you - you certainly earned your money! P.S. If you have a mailing list keep our details on it, please."

You did an emergency cover for us when Carlo the Clown from BooBoo's Agency failed to turn up for reasons still unknown to us. Well, this teller is to thank you most sincerely for a wonderful show you put on at such sort notice. Myself and Mrs Bates, (Emily's Mum), thought considering the circumstances you were given you certainly made the children's day? Just one comment left...The Punch and Judy videos...Both girls are hooked!! They are thoroughly enjoying them. Thank you again for those and the third one did arrive safely.

Both children and parents seem to have enjoyed it immensely, and, apart from the sword-fighting that broke out once you left, you managed to completely keep the little dears out of mischief after the meal had ended. We will certainly recommend you in future. Thanks again."

"It's the Monday after the 1997 Fun Day, you are undoing all those knotted balloons and washing your suit and we're surrounded by boxes of leaflets and display boards. Some of us still ache from carrying tables and we're all a bit red. The balloons are on their way to America. It was hard work but good fun and everyone seems to have enjoyed themselves. We'd like to say a big THANK YOU for helping to make the Fun Day a big success. Next year we want it to be even better. One thing we'd like to do is to put the marquee up earlier and have more stalls. Let us have you ideas. Once again thank you for your help."

"Open Day 23rd June 2007 What a wonderful day! Despite the poor weather, the turn-out far exceeded our expectations and the feedback received has been both appreciative and highly complimentary. We certainly won a lot of friends. Your contribution to the day was very significant. You entertained young and old alike and greatly added to the success of the day. One very young child who is normally quiet and reserved, talked about the day all Saturday night and Sunday morning. Memories can be wonderful. My grandson stood transfixed to the magic show, but evidently you could not compete with the landing of the helicopter - obviously more practice is needed! Many thanks again to your support and professionalism."
