My thanks to all the performers who help
produce a wonderful evening of Scottish History, Music, Song & Dance
If you were at any of this year's super venues?
Please tell me your thoughts:
Although no feedback forms were produced, this being the last planned show in the BIC, there were many, many voices of thanks on the night. I thank you all for your kind wishes and maybe someone may organise a coach trip for a weekend in Bournemouth (if I get a date!) next year. Some still took the trouble to write and your letters are so wonderful to receive. Here is what was written....
Memories of a wonderful evening in Bournemouth. We were all very impressed by Olivia's piping performance.

Better and better each year. Congratulations to all who took part. We shall miss the show coming to Bournemouth. Hope others enjoy the show as much as we have. Florence Cox
Had a great time on Sunday. It was excellent. You will be missed.
Thank you for all the pleasure you have given us over the years. We hope to enjoy many more performances in the future.
