It's noticeable that it is now 10 days since any reviews have been left - why would that be one wonders.

Our family (which included me, my husband and my 3 and 9 year old) saw Aida today and absolutely LOVED it! The kids loved the audience participation and the silliness of Aida who was really engaging throughout.

We would highly recommend for any kids who love to be part of the show and enjoy a panto style interaction with the audience. Our first show of the festival and what a great start show to get properly in the mood! Suitable for all ages, go see it!

Took my two girls (3 and 1) to see the show and both were mesmerised. Even though my 1 year old is too young to understand the story, she was giggling at Aida and joining in with the actions and clapping etc.

The whole show was blooming brilliant! Beautiful story, so interactive and engaging and just wonderful.

Not once did I feel like my children were being ‘groomed’ or that my children would be ‘turned homosexual’ as the moronic protesters outside have been warning

So good we saw it twice! Aida has serious stage presence and my 3 year old was engrossed throughout. Since watching Aida, he has been walking around the house with Aida's poster in hand and also telling everyone and anyone all about Aida, which indicates just what an impression Aida made on him. Keep doing what you do Aida and don't let the haters get you down!

My 4 year old daughter would like give her review of Aida’s story hour
‘Aida was so pretty with all her sparkly eyeshadow. She was fabulous and the bestest at telling stories because she did all the voices and let me shout out silly noises! I loved the story and the best bit was when Aida kept running up and down the stairs when we told her to. She made me laugh lots. I’d like to see Aida 10 more times!’

Great show, very interactive and silly - great job keeping a bunch of keeping a bunch of kids entertained for an hour. My 6 year old really enjoyed it.
