The 2014 Festival is over!
So, the festival is over for another year.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those local organisations who put on events for us, or in collaboration with us.
We thank the Stroud Valley Project and the Nailsworth Health Partnership for providing the walks and Barton End Equestrian Centre for
laying on the horseback event. The exhibitions and workshops were kindly contributed by the Stroud Textile Trust, Nailsworth Quakers and
local archive volunteers. The Yarn Bombing (Guerrilla Knitting) could not have taken place without Mother Goose and their knitting and crochet army.
Ruskin Mill College’s contributions have formed part of the festival, as they have since the festival began.
We also thank all our sponsors for their financial contribution and support in kind.
Nailsworth Rotary Club provided practical support with several events and it was good to welcome the Market Street Traders
participation in the Festival Saturday fun. Our thanks also go to the Town Information Centre for selling tickets,
and for their lovely window.
And finally, we thank our audiences for coming. We hope you enjoyed it.
... and a special last-minute Thank You to the Little Lauderette for their support in putting on the Jacqui Dankworth concert
