HEDFEST 2016 – THE VERDICT
Festival Chairman, David Thompson summed up his thoughts on the 2016 Hedon Festival:
“I said last year it was “Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant”, I say the same as last year with an extra ‘Brilliant’.
“A big thank you from the Chair of the Hedfest Organising Group to all who made this event such a success once again. Great for the Town, and I hope everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend”
Hedon Mayor, Councillor Neil Black, said:
“Once more the Mayor and Mayoress of Hedon have had the privilege to take part in a truly wonderful parade in a magnificent car on a wonderful day.
“Hedon can be proud of everyone who made Hedfest 2016 possible. A big thank you to all.”
