Audience & Artist Feedback

Check out what our audiences and visiting artists have to say about their experiences of MyRaynesPark Festival events.

“Thanks for a great screening last night.  It was good to meet you all and to be a part of an excellently organised and run event.”
Andrew Feinstein, author of ‘The Shadow World’

“I just wanted to say how fantastic yesterday’s session with Vanessa was.  She worked extremely well with our students and helped them to produce some outstanding work.  I think they surprised themselves!  The subject matter they covered was so relevant to issues today, and so relevant to some of our students’ own experiences.  Our students maybe don’t always get the time to reflect on questions like these or to be encouraged to express themselves in such a powerful and moving way.  It was a very valuable session and we are very grateful to Vanessa and to you.”
Amy Smith, Raynes Park High School

“Such a warm and friendly audience!”
Vanessa Kisuule, poet
