Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Despite the number of places offering entertainment was increasing, the audiences at the Tivoli were getting bigger. Fatma and Smaun's performances on the rings were very clever. The other acts are all part of an excellent programme, 'of which Frank Weston should be very proud'.
