Audience Feedback

"We've just been to Derby to watch The Giant Jam Sandwich. We have really enjoyed ourselves. Our children are 5 & 7, they were engaged through out the performance. The balance of interaction and presentation was just right. I liked mixing the dough song, the dough billowing out the doors was clever and fun. Our 7 year old liked the news reporter scene best. Very funny! A clever performance of one of my favourite childhood books. Thank you." Kathy Friend

"Saw The Giant Jam Sandwich with my 7 year old son today and we absolutely loved it. A fantastic adaptation of the story. Also a brilliant cast of actors who kept us smiling all the way through. We were still singing the baking song when we got home!" Ellie Phillips

"Loved The Giant Jam Sandwich at Derby Guildhall today. Took my toddler and she was transfixed. Fantastic cast and songs. Thanks!" Jane Upton

"Saw these guys doing The Giant Jam Sandwich at Derby Live yesterday with my two year old. We both really enjoyed it! Definitely worth a visit." Cat Smith

"We saw The Giant Jam Sandwich yesterday and thought it was great! Actually kept a nearly 3 year old (and her mummy and daddy!) who never sits still mostly entertained and she was smiling throughout! Well done I look forward to seeing what's next!" Emma Buckle

" We saw The Giant Jam Sandwich today with our 3-year-old and all absolutely loved it. Perfectly baked! Our little boy laughed out loud so many times (and so did we - loved the wasps!) And he has been crooning the dough song all day. You brought the book to life so well and your music and songs fitted seamlessly. Thank you!" Yvette Weston

"Just watched The Giant Jam Sandwich with my two children. Blown away by how clever and entertaining it was. Three incredibly talented actors brought a whole new level to this great old book. We all enjoyed it so much. Thank you!" Emily Chennery
