'Thank you all - wonderful!' Festival Goer

'As a new resident of Walpole Road that has lived here for just over a year can I just say that this years festival sounded sooo amazing from brushing our teeth in the bathroom to dancing while I baked in my kitchen with the door open...I was going to wait until my little girl was older to come to the festival but we enjoyed dancing around the house and garden this year that I'm going to buy a full camping ticket for myself and take her to her first festival!!'  - A new Folk Fan for 2018's Festival!
