Kara Richards: It’s the best festival I’ve been to in years, small, friendly and real.

Adam Bunting: Small World made me who I am today… So much magic there… Super excited for this year.

Gareth Jervis: me too, sold my house, chucked in job, bought boat and went off grid on an island in Norfolk. (….extreme…. but fair point)

Or maybe “…Unforgettable, overwhelming. Bless you ALL.” “…the most Amazing, Lovely, Musically rich and Happy experiences of my life”
