We had a lovely time everyone absolutey loved the life drawing as no one knew what it was going to be like, but they made it fun with games and we're polite and chatty! They anwsered any questions we asked them and took the drawings back and I know some people showed them to colleagues and friends and had a giggle!

Your customer service was great- I loved each email letting me know updates when they happened. We also talked to someone on the phone afterwards to let us pay for someone who was a late payment for the hen do.

Thank you for organising a fab hen do!!
