“A strong contributing factor to the success of the day, were the performances by Fighting Blades. We saw several of their scenes throughout the day. It was great being able to talk to the actors, get further back ground info and pictures with the children. The children loved holding the swords, chatting to the guys and it was such fun to see my son being so in awe of them. Looking round the audience, I think it went down well with young and old alike.”
