On behalf of all at Cannon Hall I would like to say what a pleasure its been working with you both over the last few months. The exhibition and engagement programme have been very well received by visitors.

I just want to share with you the number of happy times my daughter and I have spent in the Cafe De Galala storytelling space. My daughter would sit and browse the many stories and books whilst I absorbed the magic of the atmosphere which I later discovered was crafted by two very talented people; Amanda and Richard.

The art work and clever arrangement of items encouraged me to explore a little and discover the picture of the same name by Charles Theodore. I found the music so enriching I asked how could I find it to use at home only to discover that it had been composed by Amanda.

Everything was so professionally done it took my breath away to discover that actually the artists were here in Barnsley; and very approachable and helpful when I spoke to them.

We will be watching this space for further activities to take part in; that are planned and presented by Amanda or Richard.

Angela, visitor to Stories from Cafe De Galata

Everyone I have spoken to really loves the piece (Arthur Wharton painting) and we have had lots of positive comments including one from Jackie (Jakie Kay - poet) about the realism of the skin tone. I would also like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you for all your hard work, support and advice on the project. Your help has been invaluable thank you so much.

Su Walker, Arts Officer, Sheffield City Council

It is the best museum activity I've ever done.
