“Hello, lovely to see you all at this years festival, and we will see you on friday evening. I was asked to write down my thoughts on what the Festival has given me over the years – so here they are:
As you know, we have all attended and performed at the Festival for many years, probably 16!! Rebecca and Matthew remember the days at Keresforth Hall. Many happy hours have been spent with you all, dad has always taken holiday time off work to be with you, and mum has always prepared us for everything. We have been fortunate enough to win many trophies and medals over the years, all documented, kept, displayed and treasured forever! It has also been a great honour to perform at the Friday winners concerts, sometimes very busy for us, and for Harry and I to win special awards, plates and Rosebowls and represent you at the area finals.
