What our customers say

“I have been attending Brick Lane Music Hall for some years now and have noticed in the last year your shows have become on a par with any of the West End shows that I have seen recently. Your staff are also top rate; very helpful and friendly, which results in a nice warm feeling to the afternoon. I also admire the work you are doing in the community. Thank you again for all your hard work in keeping Music Hall alive in London.”

Mr Whatling, London

“We had such enjoyment and so many laughs at There’ll Always Be An England. Better than all the doctor’s pills! The lunch was quite something. Your nice kind young people who waited on us were so polite and nothing was too much trouble for them – and the show was Amazing.”

“Congratulations to Vincent and the other members of the team for a wonderful show There’ll Always Be An England. It is nice to see younger people being involved in the shows. The previous show Be Bop A Lula was something different and I can’t wait for Vincent’s Christmas Wonderland.”

John Peach, London

“Had the greatest evening at your wonderful show, There’ll Always Be An England as part of a weekend away. The meal was perfection in every respect, served by the most attentive staff formed from many nationalities, and in the glorious setting that you have clearly worked so hard to attain. Then to top it up, the most moving, funny and entertaining show performed with great voices under talented musical direction. I shall sing your praises whenever the opportunity arises. Thank you all once again. Please do not stop.”

David Frost, Lowestoft

“This was the second time l have visited the Music Hall with my group in 3 weeks and although both shows were different, they were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who came with me. Many people commented about seeing Paul James, and his performance with Vincent Hayes will last in peoples’ memory for a long time. I am coming for the last of my current group visits in November and already people are getting excited. Once again thank you for giving my group a wonderful time and lasting memories.”

Alan Hayes, Teston Tours, Maidstone

“We cannot express enough the most enjoyable time we had at Be Bop a Lula today, being fed and entertained by all of you at Brick Lane Music Hall. The food was very good, the service was first class and the people serving very helpful and pleasant. The hard work both in front and behind the curtains resulted in the best show our party from Cambridge have seen in a long time. We can say that in our case a good time was had by all!”

Pam Ducker, Cambridge

“Yet again, you thoroughly entertained us at Be Bop a Lula yesterday. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with the fun of the show. It was lovely to see the young dancers, they really did a very good job. The sketch about Lucky the dog was so funny, we were talking about it all the way home.”

There were quite a few people with us today who hadn’t been before and every single one of them said how much they had enjoyed the day. We had a couple of hours in Greenwich before we came on to Brick Lane so we made a day of it with the highlight being our visit to you of course. One of our friends at our table said it was the best show he had ever seen – and he sees a LOT of shows! Many, many congratulations Vincent – to you and to everyone. Apart from the great performers, all your staff are superb and so helpful and welcoming. Every one of them deserves a pat on the back. We shall definitely be back.”

I had no idea whether I had made the right choice for this special occasion until the moment we set foot in the door of your very beautiful venue. I can honestly say, I have not seen him so animated and in his element in a very long time. Our children, in their late 20’s also enjoyed the experience tremendously, the staff were lovely, the food was great and very generous, the comedy pitched perfectly for all ages and the value for money, truly outstanding.”

It is a very good programme, I have now read it from cover to cover and it is most interesting. Keep up the good work!”
