"I was delighted with the provision offered by Steve and One Day Creative. From the outset, Steve was enthusiastic and boundless in his desire to ensure a great day for our reception children. His accessible and genial nature quickly put our children at ease. Learning about the life and times of Grace Darling was a great choice and most importantly was pitched perfectly, so much so that we have used similar tableau's in a recent assembly.

Prior to the event, your administration which included hefty discussion and reassurance was also brilliant. I explained to you that I hadn't set up a trip or visit before and you very kindly supported me through the process and ensured an extremely positive outcome.

In summary, this was a great event delivered by One Day Creative and I would return without hesitation to secure your services in the future. Thank you so much. "
