Geoff A, 4 years ago

A belated but big 'thank you' for a wonderful session on the 20th June. Your guitar playing was outstanding, and the sound that you created with the oud was remarkable. Fantastic all round. I hope we have occasion to book you again. You are a truly talented musician and we are honoured that you could perform at our celebration.

I wanted to reiterate my thanks to both the guitarist and dancer for a fantastic performances at the Gallery today. They were both absolutely superb and received excellent feedback from visitors and staff alike. Around 670 visitors watched the performances which are some of the highest visitor figures we’ve had for a music and dance performance. Visitors gave the guitarist a standing ovation after his one hour solo set which I’ve never seen in the Gallery. Some visitors sat in front row seats from 12:30 - 3:30pm just to get the best view! Thanks for your help with facilitating these performances. We’re very much looking forward to his return to the Gallery on the 20th August
