My personal experience working on this show has been educational and at the same time loads of fun with a great cast and production team! I’m very proud to be a part of it all. I just hope my personal performance reflects my gratitude and hard work others around me have given me
— Alistair, cast member

"Working on the show has been an education! Born and bred in Peterborough, I remember Freemans well, but have never really appreciated the scale and innovation of the company.

I never worked at Freemans but, like Kath the character I am playing, I did enjoy a lively evening or two at Freemans Social Club, so do feel a great affinity and warmth towards her. The best part has been working with the visionary and patient Eastern Angles team.

Once we finish and it’s ‘all wrapped up in Westwood', I will have made some lovely new friends, had lots of giggles and learnt some 'cool new moves' for the dancefloor!"
