“That performance last night was out of this world! I have been to the West End on many occasions and I say this with all sincerity that the performance last night was on a par. Well done to you all for an amazing performance that mixed fun with history and culture with storming performances from everyone involved. Many thanks for inviting me and well done”

Paul McGinnety, Commissioning Manager, Children and Adult Services, Durham County Council

“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for my invite to The Wind Road Boys. My friend and I were so impressed and it certainly exceeded our expectations. I am not sure how these things work, but I felt this musical is worthy of national acclaim. Considering all of your songs were new and original they were all extremely inspiring and noteworthy. The performers did so well and were so enthusiastic and passionate about telling the story which was very evident. Your organisation is so impressive. Congratulations on a strong piece of work and I really hope that it gains the national recognition it so richly deserves”

Barbara Gubbins Chief Executive County Durham Foundation

“I would like to congratulate you on an excellent performance which was at the same time instructive, humorous and moving but most of all hugely entertaining. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed the performance and would be grateful if you could convey our best wishes and appreciation to all involved in this production. You should all be very justifiably proud and justly deserved the lengthy standing ovation you received last night”

Michael Banks Assistant Chief Constable of Durham Constabulary
