Artistic Director of New Adventures, Sir Matthew Bournesaid,
“Quite simply, there would be no New Adventures without Robert Noble and Etta Murfitt! They are central to the success of the company and its growth into the UK's most popular dance company and Britain’s biggest dance export internationally. Their work in developing new audiences for dance and inspiring new talent in our sector is unparalleled. Everyone in the New Adventures family will be delighted and thankful to see them recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list today, none so more than I. As work partners they are second to none, but as dear friends they are treasured even more”.
