A few comments...
Dear Judy,
I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the festival once more. You continue to innovate, which keeps thing fresh, yet the more familiar things – places and faces – also bring a sense of continuity, and a feeling of belonging. What I love most is the informality of the festival. FFF continues to prove over and over that you do not need big 'star names' to make a wonderful festival. It is more about the character and willingness of talented musicians to join in the spirit of the event. That has always been Fishguard's way, and long may it continue. I'll be back next year! Phil


Dear Judith,
May I take this opportunity to thank you for organising another superb Folk Festival in Fishguard. My wife and I attended for the fourth year running, and I believe this year's was the finest I have ever attended. Three days of great entertainment. Please pass on my thanks to your whole team for a job well done.
We hope to return for next year's festival. Regards, Graham and Pat

Dear Judy,
We would just like to thank and congratulate you and your team for an excellent Festival. We have been attending now for four years and this was by far the best. You seem to be managing to improve year on year – don't know how because every year we think it can't get any better. The addition of Ffwrn as a venue has added a new dynamic and the quality of musical talent on display was superb. We look forward to next year and wish you great success.
Well done Fishguard Folk Festival. Colin and Sandy

Dear Judy,
Just a short note to say that we had a great time at the festival recently and attended two sessions – Sunday night and Monday lunchtime, both were fantastic. We travelled from Wiltshire especially for the event and weren't disappointed. Many thanks for organising such a successful event.
Kind regards, Richard

Hi Judy,
Thank you, and all the team, for another great Fishguard Folk Festival. It was full of wonderful music; played, sung and shared in a wonderful spirit. Particular highlights for me were Monday's concert – Barrule were superb and for
The Young 'Uns to follow that accoustically was terrific
All the best, Jon

Dear Judy,
We have just arrived home after the best festival on our calendar. Many thanks for putting it all together and making so many people so happy. Love from Gary and Helen
