 Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how much we enjoyed the Celtic weekend.  We travelled up from Cardiff to see my mum for the weekend and it was fantastic to see the encampment on the Green on Friday night as we arrived.  My daughter loved making the bread and enjoyed seeing the horse displays and the birds of prey.  The re-enactors displays were very good, informative and fun - I know my nephew really enjoyed charging after the Romans/Celts with his "spear"!  Having good weather obviously helps but it was a really enjoyable weekend and we stayed in North Duffield the entire weekend because there was always something to go see on the Green.  Thank you also to all of your members/volunteers who made it work so well. I hope that you are able to do something similar in the future - we would definitely make the journey!


Best wishes.

I would just like to say a big thank you for the amazing Celtic weekend we attended last week.

I came over from Manchester to stay with my mum and although I had envisaged that I'd take the 2 children down by way of a distraction, I didn't quite reckon on how much they'd get from it.

We spent most of the weekend taking part in activities and enjoying the displays and my son is now obsessed with Romans - something his teachers failed to do when he studied it in school last year.

Thank you so much from all of us... We'll definitely be attending any future events

 Well Brian

Both Flynn and I totally enjoyed the whole day on Saturday from approx. 9.30am - 9pm. What an amazing event, and I'd like to thank you and all others who have dedicated there time to organise the two days. A big well done.

If you aren't up to getting things sorted for next year maybe another time in not too far in the distant future perhaps

Dear Sir / Madam,

congratulations on your recent Celtic Festival, I popped along for a few hours on the Saturday and was very impressed with the whole event, especially the interaction with the community and local school children and the roundhouse reconstruction. there's some photos from the event here, feel free to use if any are of use;
