Quotes about Busy Lizzy:

Curious cargo was thoroughly professional at all times and I wouldn't hesitate booking and working with them again in the future for other events." Angela Moxham, 'Fusion', Girl Guide Centenary Event.
"Lovely face, lovely character and presentation. It will remind people that one can be an old crone and still be beautiful." Judith Taylor, Growing Old Disgracefully Network, Harrogate Annual Meeting/Event.
"When I first saw Busy Lizzy I thought she was a pure delight. She has a mischievous twinkle in her eye and is extremely humorous;
indeed she created much mirth as she walked about dispensing gardening tips and wise saws.
I would have expected this to be an act that appealed to adults, so was fascinated that children were intrigued and interacted with her too.
I've seen many street entertainers fall prey to unruly and uninterested youngsters, but she was enchanting and seemed to draw them into her wonderfully fragrant world.
This is a beautifully costumed, extremely skilled performance and I would have no hesitation in recommending the character for festivals and events." Caroline Gannon, Silk Purse Entertainment
