"I'm just writing to say a big thank you for the wonderful Blitz evening my friend and I attended on Tuesday at the Tudor Livesey Hall. Being very interested in local history and also in wartime life and fashion, I was really looking forward to the evening, but I didn't expect the amazing experience we got.
The combination of (beautifully sung and played) songs, first-hand accounts and news reels was perfect, and the whole evening was brilliantly atmospheric thanks to the lighting, fantastic costumes and your few but well chosen props. It was also very emotional and at times both my friend and I got quite tearful, but then the laughs returned with some of bawdier songs and funny accounts. And the people who had witnessed these events first-hand clearly feltthe same, if the comments and singing around us were anything to go by. They helped make the evening too, what a brilliant bunch! The lovely Iris, 82, who sat behind me knew the words to every single song you sang, amazing."
- Emilie Lien
