  • Truly a sensational and mesmerising night. Venue was perfect and ambience with candles complemented the performance perfectly. Talented string quartet and great repertoire of songs from an amazing band Queen. Only suggestion is that considering the Queen Live Aid performance is rated the best live performance by a rock band in history, perhaps this could have been the last bracket of songs to finish on an absolute high. Can't wait till we get to the next performance.
  • Very beautiful setting at St John's Church. Acoustics were great and even our D zone seats achieved a lovely sound. I took our 10yr old son and he loved the quartet version of songs he knew. We will go again for sure. Good value for money.
  • Absolutely amazing night. Such a fabulous venue and absolutely phenomenal performance- Freddy Mercury would have been so proud ! Thank you so much
  • What an amazing experience. The songs of Queen brought to life by strings. It was like listening to a love song, I had goosebumps. Beautiful acoustics in St. John’s cathedral
  • We thoroughly enjoyed listening to a different musical interpretation of the amazing Queen music - surrounded by candle light in the neo-gothic St. John’s Cathedral. Thanks to the wonderful quartet.
