 "Thank you so much for organising the festival. xxxxxxxxx was nervous about speaking in public but she bravely faced her fears and got so much out of the experience. I think it's done her confidence the world of good. The whole event was very well organised and thoroughly enjoyable."

"I just wanted to email to say Thank You for running such a lovely and friendly festival. We really enjoyed it. Everybody was so encouraging and reassuring and accommodating. So thanks again and we hope to join in again next year. I will be recommending entering to some of my friends in the future."
