We had an amazing weekend! Thank you so much! Rak-Su was the reason we originally booked, and the highlight!😍 And Megan was incredible too! Sister Sledge & Scouting For Girls we’re fantastic as well, and the balloon glow was absolutely beautiful! The fireworks were cracking tonight!🤩 It was also pretty cool getting in a balloon basket & turning the flame on.😄 We loved it so much, we’re going to Yorkshire balloon fiesta at the end of the month!

Dancing with my 4 & 6 year old to phats and small was a memory I didn’t know I needed 🙌🏼 it was my kids first ‘festival’ experience and we had an absolute ball! Raver tots was amazing for the whole family. Really well put together, the balloon pilots were lovely & so patient, can’t wait to come back next year

So thrilled you got another launch! I was there on Friday and haven't stopped telling everyone about it - the whole day was just amazing. Also can't believe how well you've kept everyone informed and answered everyone's questions throughout - totally unheard of with the many other festivals I've been to. Can't applaud you enough
