Dear Steve, Just a quick note to thank you very much indeed for your most interesting talk about Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle at Spratton last night.  We all thoroughly enjoyed learning about the background to the famous man and his creator. We especially enjoyed the film clips and the drawings. I didn’t realise that the artist created the image with the deerstalker hat and pipe, rather than the author.  I have had lots of comments this morning in the village from members who said how much they enjoyed the evening. We all especially appreciated your careful preparation and clear presentation, with a few adding how wonderful it was to be able to hear every word you said!  We usually put together our programme for the year about February, so Hazel will no doubt be in touch with you about visiting Spratton again.  With best wishes, Enid Jarvis (Chair, Spratton Local History Society)

Hi Steve, I just want to thank you for your very entertaining talk to us last Wednesday. I have had a lot of good feedback particularly with regard to the way you interwove pictures of the various actors playing the famous detectives into the story.  I hope you will come back to us one day, Kind regards Graham.  (Towcester U3A)

Wendover U3A thoroughly enjoyed Steven’s adaptation of “A Christmas Carol “ by Charles Dickens. Steven was able to adapt his voice to the many characters and gave us a very enjoyable presentation. (Wendover U3A)

Steve gave our fellowship meeting an excellent rendition of “A Christmas Carol” - very appropriate for this time of the year! He was dressed for the part and had super props’ to create a realistic atmosphere. Steve took on all the character voices of Charles Dickens famous novel and gave a wonderful performance that deserved his rapturous applause at the close. (St Andrews Fellowship Club, Northampton)

Thank you so much for your visit to us at Higham & Rushden U3A. Wonderful story which you brought to life so well! We had 198 present. Positive feed back by so many. (Rushden U3A)

Hi Steve thanks for a wonderful evening at Knuston Hall last Thursday. Each time we come to one of your talks/entertainment evenings or lunches we leave feeling refreshed and relaxed - obviously this has nothing to do with the wine.  It is an absolute joy going to Knuston, and living in Rushden we are regular visitors with our friends and always look forward to your talks. Many thanks, Veronica.
