“Sunday was an absolute delight. There was a great crowd watching and they were interactive. We particularly enjoyed the history and photos in the BBQ tent and the young Scottish pipers were great to listen to.”
“The music tent works really well. We certainly seemed to be well received and we were very happy to play for the extra half hour. Your crew is brilliant – nothing is too much trouble.”
