Both the Chair of the Adamson Collection and the Head of the NHS South London and Maudsley Tony Hillis ward commented: "WOW was wow. Thank you, we had a great night. What amazing performances - and to be at the Royal Festival Hall...The best!"

Audience feedback from the Southbank Centre was hugely positive: "You put on the best party we've seen yet, and we were touched by the performances and really affected seeing the impact Raw Material mental health work has through the programme." 

"Honestly what the charity is doing is amazing. The empowerment given to those who performed and the ability to express such sensitive issues is amazing!!"  

"Tackling loss and abandonment of fathers was so well done. If this sort of project was available to me when I was younger it would have made a massive difference. It was so refreshing to see something that is actually doing  something rather than just talking about it."
