Operation Ouch reviews
Our two grand daughters really enjoyed the wonderful show put on by Xand and Chris. They were so entertaining and the girls were really engaged the whole time. Their ages are 10 and 6. A good show, and really "disgusting". x
Wonderful morning performance. Really well pitched at the right level, never patronising. Very engaging.
Great performance enjoyed by children and adults. Fun in an educational way, with some inspirational messages for children.
I enjoyed the show, but the purpose of booking was for my 9 year old Grandson. I think he would of liked more "gross" stuff and less chat.
My 9 year old said "it was better than I hoped for!" As funny and entertaining as the TV show.
I took my five-year-old granddaughter who although probably one of the youngest there did find a lot of the content amusing and was very intrigued by it all. I thought the content was very well presented, with some very positive messages for young (and adult) people. Would definitely go again and will take the 9 and 11-year-old grandsons, who I think would be the most age appreciative. I hope there are further live versions of this television show.
It was incredibly funny and fun and It taught me a lot about how the body works. I also think the message that they were trying to send was very thoughtful. I loved interacting with the show and luckily I didn’t get wobble fever. It was all round great.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Great balance of educational info and fun, plus some funny bits for the adults too.
Fantastic show. My 10 year old loved it and so did I. Very well put together highly recommended show.
Very enjoyable, pitched at the right level of information given. I will recommend it to family and friends
I bought the tickets for my daughter's Christmas present and thought I'd treat her to a small piece of merchandise as a souvenir. Sadly only a £30 hoodie or £15 t shirt on sale - ouch indeed! Chris and Xand were fantastic as always but not as many science experiments on stage as I had hoped and the show was a lot shorter than I realised. My daughter loved it so all good.
Amazing !! entertaining Aswell as informative and motivational me and my cousin both enjoyed ourselves immensely !!
Utterly brilliant show from Zand & Chris! As always funny for all ages and informative. We especially loved seeing the photos of them growing up and finding out how they overcame labelling at school - inspiring stuff!
We went to see this on 23rd Dec. My son really enjoyed it found it very funny but also so imformative. Deffo worth going too.
I really enjoyed it, it was fun and informative and made us all laugh. Dr Chris and Dr Xand were hilarious and my favourite part was the singing which has been stuck in my head ever since! I learned lots and had a fabulous time, I would definitely highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going. Use your frontal lobe...! 🎤🎼
My daughter loved it. A well made show that all of the family can enjoy. Would highly recommend.
I went to see this yesterday with my 9 yr daughter. I love watching their programme with her. We absolutely loved the live show, it was so funny ( we were laughing out loud). It was full of interesting stuff, and think it really great. Chris and Xand are amazng team and I love that they make learning fun. Brilliant stuff !!!
It was very entertaining with things for all personalities and the children loved the fact they could get involved. The facts were said in a way to interest all ages and interests.
