I am writing to say thank you so much for all your hard work and valuable contribution towards the Lord Mayor’s Celebrations this weekend. Please could you pass my thanks on to the performers – Circo Rum Ba, Ba, Artizani, Ian Marchant, The Grand Theatre of Lemmings, Larkin’ About and Upper Level.

The weather could not have been any better and the World Cup just added to the feel good factor as the public came out to join in with the festivities. Audience and participants alike seemed to have a fantastic time and we could not put on such a successful event without the support and involvement of the wonderful artists and organisations.

— Clare Hubery, Culture and events officer, Norwich City Council

‘Many thanks for your work towards our event on Monday. It was a fabulous day and as always the artists were so professional – I know I never need to worry when we have artists from you!'

— Caroline Rackham, Borough of Poole Arts Service
