Helen Flower, Business Development Manager, Barnsley Council

I met Cathy in early 2016 as we embarked on our first ever food festival. Food Festivals Ltd was recommended to me by a contact within the events industry and I was assured that Cathy could help me deliver a high quality event
Cathy and I met to discuss what Food Festivals Ltd  could offer and she was very clear on pricing and what she could do. Cathy was very open and provided me with lots of valuable advice and support; she was always available to speak with and offered ongoing support in the months leading up to the event. I was given weekly updates on bookings and Cathy suggested new opportunities that I hadn’t considered.

Once Cathy was on board, the mammoth planning process was eased as I knew the stall holders had a contact and she was managing the booking process. On the day of the event Cathy managed getting all of the exhibitors on site and set up, without that support I don’t think we could have coped on the day.

The event was a great success and we had lots of positive feedback from visitors and producers. Everyone seemed really happy with how the event was planned and delivered on the day; this was largely due to how well my company and Food Festivals Ltd worked together to deliver a high quality event.

I have learned an enormous amount from Cathy and found her to be professional, supportive and approachable
I would definitely work with Food Festival Ltd again and we are already planning our next event. Experience has taught me that festivals take a lot more work than anticipated, but working with Food Festivals Ltd made the process so much easier and allowed us to deliver what, at times, felt like an impossible task!
