Jolly Good Festival

Thank you so much for all the hard work your team put into our Fiesta last Friday. It went really well, and our clients / staff had a fantastic time. The support and help provided throughout was very much appreciated and helped the event to run so smoothly. The catering team also did a fantastic job and food selection/drinks options were perfect.

Warners Shows organise events with all major showgrounds across England. It was a pleasure to work, from start to finish, with such a professional and helpful team on site as we launched our new event on the South of England Showground. From point of sale through to ground staff. Looking forward to returning in 2024.
