Feedback from the show

“I wanted to say how fantastic I thought ‘The Help for Heroes’ concert was on Saturday night. The whole performance was superb and deserves a national audience. The children were a credit to Ferryhill and the money raised is destined for a very good cause. Please pass on my congratulations to everyone involved. I look forward to the next concert!”
Phil Wilson MP, Sedgefield

“I don’t have enough superlatives in my vocabulary to adequately describe my admiration for the young people (and the professionals and Army personnel) who took part in the concert. What a spectacular event it was, from start to finish – at times amusing, at times very poignant, but always polished and entertaining. The young people who join your programme are indeed lucky to have such a dedicated and experienced teacher”
Councillor Les Thompson, Mayor of Durham

“May I congratulate you, your actors and pupils, technicians and anyone who was involved with the concert in aid of Help the Heroes for an absolutely wonderful performance on Saturday. The enthusiasm, talent and pure enjoyment coming from the performers was truly infectious and spellbinding. Like every other member of the audience I was thrilled throughout the concert. I eagerly look forward to your next performance but I understand that everyone will need a good rest to recuperate. Kind regards to all”
Councillor Eileen Martin

“It has been my pleasure to be involved in a small way and to watch the rehearsals and see how it came together. You and your team were brilliant. I am a firm believer that you are only as good as the people you have to work with and your team and the leeds lot as well as principal actors were brilliant. There will be a buzz in the air for all who attended and I would add a degree of jealousy for those who never came. In my opinion this is something that I think you could take on the road all over the country to theatres up and down the UK involving other local communities in the way that you brought Ferryhill together. In short I think you are all amazing, Professional, Unique individuals that I am proud and privileged to know. Regards”
Bugle Major Garry Suggett
