SeeTickets reviews:

"This really was more than just a live music show! It was an incredible trip down memory lane! James was very entertaining and funny. He's a lovely person who spent time talking and engaging with the audience during the event and afterwards. A thoroughly enjoyable, nostalgic and happy evening. Can't wait for the next show!”

“The most joyful trip down memory lane, I had heard great things about this show and it lived up to all my expectations. Brilliant.”

“Such a brilliant night! So excited for the Christmas version next month!”

 "An exceptional night out listening to some of those hymns we all know without knowing how we can remember all the words. James was entertaining and very funny and engaging.”

"Went to this show on my own but with audience participation I felt like I was in a room of friends. Made to feel like a valued person by James Partridge and he took an interest in each person who came up to talk to him after. 

"A great evening. Very funny, entertaining, engaging and a great choice of bangers!! Absolutely nailed it”

"You might think that singing along to primary school assembly songs would be naff. I sure did until I tried it. Boy was I wrong - I haven't had quite so much fun in years !”

"What a genius idea! Such a happy night of nostalgic singing my heart out!! Should be a stadium tour… the world would be better if everyone went"
