Nigel Greenwood cofounder of SO SUSSEX says:
"We’ve been overwhelmed by the hundreds of positive comments and feedback received from this year’s festival goers. Their words sum up the ethos of the festival far better than we ever could and we felt inspired to do it all again and produce the best ever Elderflower Fields in 2016”.
“It's probably the best thing we have done together as a family, ever.”
“It's not like any other event we've ever been to with or without children.”
“The sports camp was brilliant for my children and with so many other activities going on over the weekend, it's hard to fault.”
“The focus is on kids - I don't know any other festival like that.”
“The family picnic was a brilliant idea. It was good to taste local produce and chat to people. The food was fabulous and really generous.”
“We loved the diversity of bands on the main stage, some fantastic choices.”
“My daughter fell asleep on my lap both nights listening to the music at the woodland stage.”
