This Year's Events

Feedback

Thanks again for organising a lovely event.

Dave Goulson
Feedback From 2017 Festival

It was much appreciated that you included Victoria Hislop in this year's festival. As always she was charming and entertaining.

Christine Savill
Feedback From 2016 Festival

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

Feedback From 2016 Festival

Many thanks, and thanks again for a lovely event.

Catherine Mayer
Feedback From 2015 Festival

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
