Margaret Fiddes is the Trustee for Yorkshire and the Humber and is one of the u3a volunteers who has been planning the festival. She says, "We are delighted with the programme, we hope you will feel the same. Our members have been wonderful with their offerings and as a team working on this project, whilst it certainly is a challenge it’s also a joy to be involved in. So, get your bookings in and start planning."
