What do our clients say about us?
Thank you Toni, you did a fantastic job of entertaining the kids at the Hutton Roof Fell Race 2016, it was certainly something different for them to enjoy and it went down really well, good job well done!
had the pleasure of employing the Entertrain for the 2016 Annual Gala. We wanted an activity which our children could participate in, have fun and learn some new skills. From the initial contact to the actual event we found dealing with the Entertrain a pleasure, being both professional and friendly. We were able to customize the event to meet our quite specific requirements and nothing seemed too much trouble. Being a small scale event we didn't have a massive budget but this was in no way reflected in the service we received. I am very happy to recommend Entertrain to anybody thinking of hosting this kind of activity and we would not hesitate to invite them to our event in the future.
"We have all had a weekend and a day in school to calm down and reflect on the workshops on Friday. I was met with lots of beaming smiles from both staff and pupils on going in to school on Monday morning. Your workshop was all I wanted it to be having heard of what circus skills can do for children. They learned new skills - and what skills - learned how to persevere and have fun at the same time. When they showed off their skills at the World party they were proud of their achievements and so they should have been. Thanks both to you and to all your team."
