Audience Feedback

"A heartfelt thank you to the BATS company for the fantastic 60th anniversary concert.  Coming from a theatrical background myself, I have attended all sorts of shows, both amateur and professional, over many years and this one rates very high on the list for quality and entertainment. I was amazed at the consistently high standard of singing by all members.  I am resolved to attend more BATS shows in the future and will do my best to spread the word about the superb local talent that we have on our doorstep."

Diane Taylor, Deputy Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane
