“(Your) performances have helped us win a ‘Best Stand’ and ‘Best Promotion’ award at the British Travel Trade Fair. I have no hesitation in recommending (Ellis’s) services or those of his company.”

Development Officer,

‘Lancaster Tourism’.

“...An enormous thank you for all the hard work and enthusiasm you contributed to our ‘Regency Life Behind the Scenes’ weekend. I was most impressed by the way you interacted with our own guides on their tours, which both they and our visitors enjoyed immensely.”

Marketing and Promotions Officer ‘Royal Pavilion’

“Your show at the 1996 Patrons’ Dinner was a great success. Thank you so much - The photograph shows what fun you gave everyone.”

Harriot Tennant,

‘The British Museum’.

“I honestly don’t think there was one actor out of the several you sent here... Who did not quickly adopt an appropriate ‘identity’ - and with minimal briefing... It was only when visitor numbers had been counted at the end of each day that I began to realize how effective your people had been.”

Marketing Manager, ‘Tower Bridge’,

“...(‘Here be Dragons’ performers were) exceptionally creative, personable, reliable and flexible... I would recommend (you) very highly to anyone considering engaging your services.”
