What the public say

A real treat even for those of us who haven't been on a bike for years. An amazing performance by Philip Steward. My first taste of Horizon's work and it won't be my last. Would grace the New Wolsey's main stage.

Brilliant!! Ill be honest I went because a friend asked me to and when it started I felt dread. However within minutes I was captured. Philip's performance was fantastic. I have a low attention span yet he captivated it for the whole of the performance. I laughed out loud and at one point felt a bit choked up. I imagined each character he became. Totally impressed and in awe of Philip's memory. Well done great nights entertainment.
