“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well”
Since we started back in 2018, we've been lucky enough to have the most amazing support from our artists, sponsors, volunteers and visitors - and we'd like to say a massive THANK YOU!!
We've been thoroughly entertained by these amazing artists - an eclectic mix of writers, painters, actors, poets, archaeologists, journalists, to name but a few! They've been fun, interesting and thought-provoking, and we'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for believing in us and helping us grow year after year...
