Feedback From 2016 Festival

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.
