    ‘We both found the visit both interesting and instructional. Seeing costumes and wigs up close was special and learning how wigs were made. Also to stand on the stage and look out at the auditorium where we have sat over so many years. A very helpful and enthusiastic guide. Will certainly recommend friends to visit.’Ann Barnes, Backstage Tours 2016
