I just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our Prom last night so amazing.!!!

Even when we were throwing challenges your way it never seemed to be too much of a problem so thank you for bearing with us, it was greatly appreciated. We had such a good night dancing away and it was a lovely send off for the kids.

We will be using you guys again.
