THANK YOU VERY MUCH…….
“Bowdon Festival would like to say a HUGE thank you to Bowdon Parish for all their support in staging the 2017 Festival. We have been helped in so many ways – groups have made alternative arrangements so that we can occupy the Church and Parish Centre for the duration of the Festival and so many people volunteered to be stewards or help in the Choir Café. We are very grateful for the support and the Festival could not have taken take place without them.”
ANOTHER TERRIFIC FESTIVAL
This year, almost 600 performers took part in 77 classes in 20 sessions over the four days, making the Festival not only a terrific event once again but also a real community effort. Your efforts helped to make the event a success and we would like to share some of the unsolicited comments we have received this year from parents and adjudicators:
“We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with you at the Festival. It has given our son a lot of confidence now, as he rarely gets the chance to sing alone in front of an audience.”
“So well organised.”
“What a lovely, friendly festival.”
“The feedback from the adjudicator was so helpful.”
“Thank you for being so welcoming this weekend. My husband and I were impressed by the lovely music we heard and our daughter was encouraged by the comments given to her by the adjudicators.”
From Jackie Martindale, the NW Regional Representative of the British and International Federation of Festivals: “All the members of your team whom I met made me feel really welcome.”
“You have a very competent team of stewards and those who worked with me worked so efficiently, allowing me to get on with the task of adjudicating. Everything was really well organised.”
“Wonderful carrot cake!”
NOW THE PLANNING STARTS FOR 2018 – AFTER A WELL EARNED BREAK OF COURSE…..
