Thoughts on last years Sunrise

The festival was amazing! The most beautiful setting and so many activities and music and dance and circus fun and animals. We had the best weekend ever. Well done to the organisers, staff and entertainers, ye were all so kind and welcoming. Please, please, please do it again next year! Kate Dugan

Fabulous weekends had by us all, kids and big kids!
couldn't fault a thing. Special thanks to all the staff involved (especially the crew in the cafe) super long hours and lots of effort put in this weekend but there wasn't a time we weren't greeted with a smile. This weekends memories will be smiled over often. Thank you :) Tania Southwell

The sunrise children's festival was just magical! Beautiful surroundings with so much to see and do and the acts were great. Really well organised too. Look forward to the next one. Hazel Murphy

We had such a great weekend, brilliant music, shows and fun activities and it was really well organised, well done everyone involved. Looking forward to next year already. Carol Barrett
