We are immensely grateful to have worked with you on our festival this year. It is so rare to meet people who are so dedicated and enthusiastic about their work. You have both been so incredibly kind, generous and supportive in helping us with our festival. You are both a true credit to your profession and we honestly feel so lucky to have gotten to know you and work with you both.

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.

Southdown Fiesta

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.
