If you could travel back in time, the period from 1660 to 1700 would make one of the most exciting destinations in history...
Congratulations to the whole Lit Fest team. I am glad it has been such a well-deserved success! The huge effort put into it is very clear to see, it is great when that is acknowledged and rewarded! We have been very happy to host the event -we are all very proud to be involved with the Lit Fest...
Many thanks, and thanks again for a lovely event.
Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.
Paul was an excellent interviewer, and I loved the format. Great audience, acoustics...
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
