What an evening the Illuminations were. So much thought had gone into the show not only to look good but also to reflect the fallen. While this place is standing they will never be forgotten. If your thinking of going stop thinking and just do it you won't be disappointed.

We went yesterday evening for the light display. It was fantastic. All have worked very hard to put on the best light display I have ever seen. The organisation was second to none and the maze, in particular was fantastic. In addition the hot chocolate with cream and marshmellows was very very welcome. All that and a gental reminder of what bravery and honor really are.

Visited the annual light show last night, totally brilliant ! ...The NMA should be very proud of their efforts...The staff were all so very helpful, especially the lady at The Bevan Boys memorial, the young lads on our group loved her little presentation on the canaries and mice ! ...Covid rules well in place....just one criticism that slightly spoilt the evening...The so called currywurst was awful..not a wurst at all but some cheap nasty sausages...at £6.50 a portion we spent over £25 which ended up in the bin !! ...otherwise keep up the great work at remembering so many.....Looking forward to 2021 RTTW ( hopefully ? )

What a glorious place to remember all those lost to us and acknowledge how they served their country. It is beautifully laid out, with an air of serenity that shows respect and admiration for all those who have served. It was a grey day, and despite Covid restrictions which were well organised the day was well worth it.
