Holly B.
Emotional, funny, bonding ★★★★★

“I took my 10 and 8 year old sons to see War Horse after one of them has studied the book at school. The whole experience was fabulous - a really moving performance where the actors ability to emulate horses was nothing short of mesmerising. It was funny at times, sad at others and such a bonding experience. I would definitely recommend!”
