    Garden Entertainment

    Rose organised an excellent homecoming celebration for a small group of friends in my garden. It was joyous and uplifting at a time when we all needed a boost after being locked down. The event was arranged at short notice and gave us special memories of our reunion with good friends. Thank you to all the performers who were friendly and very talented. The level of audience participation was perfect for our little gathering.

    Amazing!!!

    The most exciting dynamic African dance imaginable plus a visually stunning performance... Super human drumming.
    Adanta Group were excellent, and had all the guests on the dance floor.
    The group had a very positive attitude and genuinely enjoy entertaining through their dance and music.
    The feedback from the guests was very positive, and we would personally highly recommend them.
