...thank you too personally, for helping to make it all possible. We weren’t exactly expecting to embarrass ourselves looking like a pair of middle aged twits behind the boys - but anything to make the guests smile - and you never think you are as old as you are! Altogether - they all made it an unforgettable evening and one that every single person enjoyed from my parents in their seventies and eighties, to the youngsters in their teens and twenties. Diversity were all consummate professionals who clearly spend a great deal of time and effort ensuring that their performances are to the very highest standard - Diversity are still up there as one of the best performance acts in any genre because their attention to detail, timing and skill-set is superb. More to the point - they are all delightful people and we thoroughly enjoyed having them in our home.
