"Just to say thank you for the splendid and helpful reception you gave our Funny Bones team when we descended on you a week ago Tuesday. I know our Production guys Crispin and Alan were well impressed by the technical support they received. Martin your Duty Manager and ours for the evening were friendly and very helpful. And Marie from Marketing was lovely in coordinating and assisting with the Sensory tour prior to the show. We hope to do similar again with you in the future."
