Hi everyone

Quick update from the Festival team.  We have been getting lots of calls and bookings in the Early Years and Primary Programme - it has been super to hear how excited schools are to visit.  Please don't forget that if you haven't got your copy of the programme please don't hesitate to get in touch or download your copy from our website.  You will have noticed that we have changed the booking procedure slightly this year and ask that if you would like to make any preferences for workshops for your pupils and we can discuss how best to tailor your booking to best meet your needs.  Any questions you have about our exciting new venue we can answer to ensure you are planning your visit with as much information as possible.

Look forward to hearing from you soon
