"COTTAGE STEALS THE SCENE ... The set by Peter Fairchild ... presents a bucolic cottage complete with 'live' pigeons in the loft. It steals the show before the Manchester Camerati has even sounded the overture." - Peter Palmer. "Peter Fairchild's country cottage set, with roses round the door and real pigeons in the loft, is a delight!" - Michael Kennedy, The Sunday Telegraph.
