Feedback from audiences
"Short of a very effective seance, I can't imagine it ever being done better."
"Brilliant!! What a joy to wallow in the good old fashioned comedy lines of yesteryear. Talented cast provided a slick delivery of dialogue capturing the essence of what enjoyment the radio can offer."
"A great fan of the radio programme when originally broadcast, I was immediately attracted to this show but with a certain trepidation. I wasn't sure it would be convincing. Well, those fears were entirely unwarranted. It is a wonderful production. All the cast were brilliant in their roles and I thoroughly enjoyed it, as indeed did my wife who was unfamiliar with the radio broadcasts."
"Congratulations to all concerned for being "spot on". Time and again I had to remove my spectacles to wipe away tears of laughter; time and again I was transported to those glorious Round the Horne days; time and again I was convinced I was sitting not in the Grand Theatre Swansea but in the BBC Theatre."
Julian Howard McDowell as Kenneth Horne was uncanny. It was as if the man himself had come back to life and was with us once more.
"I just wanted to say thank you for a lip-tremblingly, rib-ticklingly, corset-bustingly and deliciously hilarious performance of Round The Horne."
