Lights & Bushels Theatre Company
"Thank you all for a wonderfully atmospheric evening last night ! The setting was perfect and the candlelight added to this beautifully. As soon as we came in and heard the cast singing carols in their costumes, we were immersed. The relaxed seating made us feel as if we were being told bedtime stories around the fire and the mulled wine and mince pie during the interval were both welcome and festive. There was a good and varied range of voices in the cast to keep things interesting and we particularly enjoyed the mix of narration and acting. Well done Lights and Bushels for yet again coming up with something not done before."
"What a fantastic evening- really captivating and excellently performed by all. Brilliant original idea for night of theatre. Well done all!"
"Great performance last night everyone. Such a great idea and venue. Looking forward to your next venture!"
"Fantastic job! You should all be very proud."
"...Spooky telling of Victorian ghost stories with the brilliant Lights & Bushels Theatre Company."
"Congratulations on such a fascinating concept and to all of you who performed in Strange Disturbances"
"What a lovely evening at Lights and Bushels Christmas ghost story evening at Artisan in Horsham! Feeling so Christmassy!"
"Well done everyone for a really entertaining performance of Strange and Disturbing tales last Thursday. I know you are sold out for every night which is a great testament to your popularity. You all looked so authentic in your costumes and the whole evening was a great success. Congratulations!"
"Very atmospheric and beautifully performed by all. A very different evening - memorable indeed."
"Well done to Lights and Bushels for this unique evening of pre-Christmas Victorian entertainment. Beautifully presented and performed with suitably scary effects. A lovely lead up to Christmas!"
