The whole weekend was absolutely brilliant. Huge thanks and appreciation to all the hard working team behind the scenes. Look forward to next year already! The atmosphere was very unpretentious and inclusive and a wide variety of choice.
I have not attended for a few years but this year I found the program nicely diverse, interesting and inspirational and I found it to have a wonderful community and festival feel.
It all had an excellent vibe, a strong community spirit which I loved and the sessions were informative. Seeing my kids engage with authors.
I loved the Hub - it had the most warm and vibrant atmosphere - and the wonderful and gracious volunteers.
It was a brilliant event, lots of interest, and great to focus on the literary talent in the West. I'll be attending next year.
Thanks to all the polite, cheerful and hardworking volunteers and for keeping the prices so incredibly reasonable! Soup was good too. Nice to see a literary festival organised so well in the West.
Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 workshops I attended and can't wait till next year. To the organisers and all involved, well done and keep up the great work.
I loved the onsite book store and the variety of sessions. Can't believe that I haven't been before, can't wait until next year. So many inspiring speakers with amazing knowledge and passion. A huge thank you to the organizing committee and the fabulous volunteers. Congratulations on a great event. As an aside I loved the little community free book stand in the hub.
I LOVED this festival. The program was diverse and showed extraordinary vision - every taste and age was catered for. Next year I hope to attend more sessions and will most certainly advertise it as widely as I can through my own networks. Congratulations to the organising committee and to everyone who contributed to this fantastic event!
Amazing organisation in every way. Perfecto! Congratulations to the entire team.
Apart from great sessions the atmosphere in the Hub was fantastic. Friendly, happy, everyone chatting & laughing as they met up. Very much a Community event. I come across a couple of people who I see only once a year and that's at the festival!
This is a brilliant festival. I'll definitely be coming again next year.
