"Really enjoyable performance! All children from Reception to Year 6 were engaged throughout.
Brilliant acting and the humour made all children and staff giggle. Children had opportunities to join in.
Punctuality brilliant! Lovely people who really enthused the children and was a brilliant start to our 'Heroes from History' theme day. Thank you!
P.S - Would recommend!"
Anna Hall, Headlands Primary School
"Very enjoyable - children laughed and cheered all afternoon: obviously well written with children as the audience in mind.
Very committed actors/ess who engaged fully with the children. We would definitely consider booking again. Thank you."
Mick Beard, Wickhambreaux Primary School
"Excellent production. The children really enjoyed it and were thoroughly engrossed. The set and use of props was very effective. The actors were very convincing in their different roles."
Mrs H Smith, Spire Junior School
"A fantastic production which kept all of Key Stage 2 (and their teachers) amused for the full hour. Just when the children were getting fidgety there would be a small participation which got them moving.
St John's & St Clement's Primary School
"Pupils really enjoyed the show.
The pace, scope for pupil involvement and humour were much appreciated. Sets and costume/character changes were efficient and effective and the story was clear for the whole age range to follow.
A fun show!"
St Bernard's Preparatory School
"Very interactive and engaged the children. Great scenery - cleverly used!"
Lisa Price, Norwood Green Junior School
"Fantastic - perfectly pitched and very enjoyable. Characters were great and extremely entertaining.
This is the 2nd time we have had a performance from Hobgoblin and would recommend to any schools.
S Perkins, Durston House School
"The performance you put on was absolutely brilliant. All the children were thoroughly engaged throughout. Staff commented to me that they really enjoyed the show and an experienced teacher who said she'd seen lots of theatre companies said it was by far the best she'd ever seen.
The set and props were fantastic and ideal for children who need lots of visual stimulation. I thought the content was perfect for all children to understand and for older children will stimulate their interest to find out about King Arthur in history.
The school and both myself and the KS2 History Co-Ordinator thought it was a real bargain at your prices. All the actors were spuerb, professional and friendly. Thank you very much for making it such an enjoyable experience for the children and teachers."
Amanda Piper, White Court Primary School
If you are looking for an activity to kick off your Book Week or perhaps something to introduce Historical Heroes then this show is for you.
There is no maximum audience size for this production so everybody in the school, from Reception all the way up to the Staff, can watch together.
What did King Arthur say to Guinevere at bedtime..?
"Excellent show - really creative and totally aimed at the right age for us.
Wonderful acting and we loved the way three people swapped roles so effectively.
Children (and staff) were thoroughly entertained without being too hyper.
We LOVED it!"
Amanda Jeager, Trinity First School
"The arrival, set-up and clearing away was timely and fuss-free.
The different characters were well acted allowing the children to differentiate.
The costumes were realistic (bearing in mind how many changes had to be done)
Well done & thank you."
L McDonald, St Margaret's
"I think that the play was fantastic! It was very slick and excellently performed.
The children, from Reception to Year 6, were engaged for the whole performance. Well done.
The language was easy to understand and the teachers thought that the amount of audience participation increased gradually so that all could join in successfully.
The children behaved well throughout and were not left too excited, so thank you.
We all want to congratulate you on an excellent performance and look forward to next year.
Sharon Kimsey, Oake Bradford & Nynehead
"Professional yet friendly staff - both by phone when booking and also the actors.
The children of all year groups were totally engaged with the performance, with parents and staff giving very positive feedback. Already booked for next Christmas!"
