Wedding Couple, April 2015

I just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and the amazing theatre staff. I have hired various theatres over the 10 years we have been doing shows and I can honestly say that the Wilde theatre has been the best and ticks every box so we will definitely use it again and in the future! The lighting and technical staff were brilliant and so helpful and you have been lovely all the way along so thank you. The show was a great success and the feedback has been incredible and people watching and the dancers absolutely loved the venue.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all the technical team for doing such an efficient and wonderful job!! It really made such a difference to feel that we were being looked after and to be given the confidence that everything was under control – nothing seemed too much trouble for anyone and it made our experience all the more enjoyable and took away any stress in that area. Thank you so much!

We would like to thank the chef who allowed us to order food at 3pm and the wonderfully chatty and up beat bar staff. What a truly inspiring and happy place SHP is. It made me want to be an actress all over again!

Bride, October 2014

The Wilde Theatre is like an oasis in a dessert. It is a beautiful theatre that was the perfect venue for our Welcome Morning for LaplandUK, giving first impressions of our brand and work ethic. We have found a home for life for this annual event. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating to all of needs resulting in a very successful introduction to LaplandUK to our newly recruited staff.

Lapland UK

Just a word of thanks for the reception that you provided today, it was excellent. I had been apprehensive about the whole occasion because I had made arrangements on behalf of a poor lady whose husband died suddenly and there was nobody to help her. Everything went well. Thank you again.
David Gunner

Wake, December 2014

Just to say a big thank you to everyone at South Hill Park for once again making us feel so welcome and making The Wizard of Oz such a great experience for cast and crew. Everyone from House Managers to Box Office Staff to Administration to Theatre staff to Reception were wonderful.

The event was perfect, the food and refreshments delicious, thank you so much for helping to make a very important and emotional day so lovely and run so seamlessly. Please would you ensure our thanks are passed on to all staff who contributed. My Mum also wanted to let everyone know how much she appreciated everyone’s efforts in making the day so special.

Bracknell Forest Council”]Just wanted to reiterate what I said on the phone earlier. Our exhibition launch last night, of the art work of children in care, was a great success and we would like to pass on our thanks to all those at SHP who helped to make that possible. In particular, I would like to thank those involved in the catering of the event. The food was of very good quality, beautifully presented and of exactly the right quantity. It helped to create exactly the right atmosphere for the evening, thanks again to all concerned.
