What you said about Festival 2016

 “Thank you so much for leading such a wonderfully successful Thame Literary & Arts Festival. In my opinion, the best yet.  Excellent speakers and very good audience sizes. Well done to you and the whole team.”

 “We very much enjoyed the events we went to, particularly the Roger McGough evening.”

 “Hugh Sebag-Montefiore's talk was such an interesting one. Rob and I both really enjoyed it and we bought the book.”

  “I love TAL Festival. It’s so interesting. I would like to have gone to all the events!”

 “I’ve stocked up on some great books for Christmas presents!”

 “Thank you for a brilliant festival.”

 We were very touched by the family who came from Bishop Stortford to hear Adrian Tinniswood talk about his book The Long Weekend. They had missed him talking before in London, so decided to come to Thame to hear him. And they weren’t disappointed. When they saw what else TAL had to offer, they booked into a hotel and stayed for the whole weekend! “What a wonderful event,” they told us. “We’ll be back next year.”
