Just a quick one to say a huge thank you to you and everyone there for all your help with our set for Aladdin, the cloths all looked stunning, so colourful, and we had so many complimentary remarks about. In particular the waterfall scene received a 'wow' at every performance - as well as your fab cloth we used a projection on the waterfall and it just looked amazing.
Once again, many Thanks
