I very much beleieve in what Leonie and Godfrey are trying to do and have done for so many years which is keep live music "alive". In a world where technology reigns its refreshing to see 2 people so dedictaed to bringing real artists together with real audiences. As old fashioned as it seems in this modern world its one of the few heart connections left that can cut deep into the human soul.Some things will never change like Mother Nature keeps telling you the truth through her beautiful creations. This is why peole like Leonie and Godfrey should be allowed to continue thier dream and make this world a better place. They are trying to do the job the universe gave them so lets help that happen. Love, Holly

Happy to contribute to this incredible theatre. As a Canadian who travels to London often, I always make plans to see a show at Pentameters. I love the atmosphere of this stage and the dedication of its producers, directors, and artists. Lovely place and miss it dearly. Hope to see you there in the near future!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to direct my 1st play at your theatre. A great experience, in large part due to being made to feel so welcome by Leonie. Good luck, I hope you make it through. X Kind Regards Russell Collins Nordic Theatre Company. Ghosts 2008
