There are some lovely photos of people enjoying it available on the following link. Do take a look. Dan also texted me that night to say what a star you had been in dismantling the whole thing again so quickly and managing to get out within the allotted time span! Fantastic job and for which many, many thanks! So THANK YOU for helping to create a very special atmosphere and evening. The event itself was a huge success and people seem to have genuinely had a great night out!

  "I contacted Brett about hiring a carousel for my clients' wedding celebration in June after being badly let down by another supplier just over 2 weeks before the day. Having spoken to several other companies who were already fully booked I wasn't feeling too hopeful, but Brett was fantastic, confirming availability straight away and arranging a site visit within the same week. Within the space of a few days I had a booking confirmed, and had received photos of the exact carousel being provided along with full documentation and health and safety certificates.

  "Andy and his team arrived the day before to set up, doing so with the minimum amount of fuss and disruption, and on the day itself they did a brilliant job. The carousel looked (and sounded!) absolutely stunning and proved extremely popular with the guests, especially the 60 children we had on site! Guests were still in the vicinity when the carousel was dismantled in the evening, but it was done with such a minimum amount of disturbance that I don't think anyone had noticed it had gone!

Thanks again. Best wishes"  Dave Winslett

    "Just wanted to drop you a line to say how brilliantly yesterday went, and how great Albert was throughout the entire day (and it was such a long day for him). The fact that he managed to get the game into the studio was amazing, and one of the most impressive bits of driving/manoeuvring I've ever seen! Everyone was over the moon with how the ride looked and Albert couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. So huge thanks from us all here and I'll send you a DVD of the trailer once it is finished. It will be on air from Thursday. Many thanks again, and please pass on our thanks to Albert."  Emily, Redbee Media (BBC Panorama)
