"Hurst festival met recently and reviewed how it all went this year. A total of 85 events meant that we involved the largest number of people ever and a huge variety of participants. We are so grateful to you for your part in this and hope that you enjoyed being with us. Your performance at The Rectory was extremely well received and I think you brought much more than just the music to the evening.....Thank you. We hope you enjoyed being a part of this year's Hurst Festival."
