Testimonials:

‘Lovely to see so many good things happening here loved the atmosphere today!’

‘Do continue with this resounding success’

‘Great vibe – as it should be! Market House was buzzing!!

‘‘The festival was good because it encouraged people to think about their gardens, plants and flowers that we have around us and also about what has been and is being done, to make St Austell a nice place to live and for visitors to come to. I think the festival brought a lot more people into town and also encouraged people to come together and try some new ideas, that might appeal to people, such as the people showing art and craft work in the Market House., and all of the shops who had colourful displays in their windows – loved the entertainment that was provided for us!’

“Please have it again next year – very positive and wonderful!’

“Great stalls and everyone very willing to have a chat and share their enthusiasm for gardening and clay’
