Well said, Geordie- Gerry and Kevin have made a major contribution to pantomime- they've changed the look of the Dame over the past nigh forty years. When Peter and I first went to see them, recommended by our mutual friend, Judy Walker, we discovered a world where you could mount large objects on your head and the sky was almost the limit to the height, the colour and the only limits were weight and imagination!
I am so proud that the two champagne wigs are on display at the V&A, and that I have a store full of Gerry & Kevins creations- heres to their blissful break from wigging,and to a succesful and happy launch for David as he carries on their amazing work!

: well-earned retirement - gawd knows you've
: earned it! You've done our coiffures great
: and small, subtle and - well, not! - and
