Venue Comments
Malvern Hills Elim Church, Malvern The thing about 4Front is, it’s always fun, it’s always clever, interesting and very entertaining.
Jubilee International Church, Kidderminster Thank you very much! That was brilliant; very good! You get better and better every year.
St James CE Primary School, Malvern Thank you - that was great! The kids loved it; it was a really great way to end the term.
Foley Park School, Kidderminster That was brilliant - the kids absolutely LOVED it!
CLC, Selly Oak Fabulous - absolutley Fabulous!
BCC, Birmingham It was lots of fun, very funny, fast-paced, creative and very appealing to both children and adults alike. The character 'Rocky' was just fabulous. I also really liked the balance of most of the fun being for the kids, but there also being a few 'in jokes' for the parents. Many churches would do really well to host this production as the core of a fun Christmas outreach event, in my view. We loved it and our kids loved it. You guys did a great job. Thank you!
Newquay United Reformed Church That was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen!
New Life Church, Bristol This show was really good. I’ve seen lots of shows in schools, I used to be a headmaster, and rarely would they be of this quality. It was really good.
Oasis Church, Stratford-Upon-Avon I really enjoyed the rap particularly - it was a really good quality show. I definitely will be coming again, it was so good!
Brunswick Baptist Church, Gloucester Thank you very much, that was lovely; I didn’t know quite what to expect but it was really good - keep doing it!
Garstang Free Methodist Church, Garstang It was very good, I really enjoyed it, thank you ever so much.
Whitley Bay Baptist Church, Whitley Bay It was absolutely brilliant!
Whitley Bay Primary School Show It was brilliant - great response from the kids!
Elim Life Church, Kingstanding Excellent show - very enjoyable!
