We just wanted to say a personal thank you to the thousands of people who have made Lytham such an amazing week this year.
Firstly to all our fantastic staff. From the box office, right through to those who put together the stage and everything in between. Many have been working very long hours, not seen their families all week, and been working in a whole range of weather! Thank you to you all, you're all superstars.
Next to our incredible artists. We've had some truly memorable performances over the week. Thank you, and please spread the word about our special little town.
To the patient and lovely people of Lytham. We realise that the Festival doesn't go unnoticed to you. Your tolerance, understanding and support mean a great deal to us. We never take the fact you allow us to have a festival in your town for granted, and we thank you for embracing it... we promise to put the beautiful Green back just the way we found it, although it may take us a bit of time to get it 100% as it's a bit muddy!
And finally, a massive thank you to our wonderful audiences. We can't believe so many of you came EVERY NIGHT... in fact almost 5000 of you came to every single concert! You are the reason that we keep doing this amazing event, and we promise to continue for as long as you keep coming! You are all so great. We listen to everything you tell us (good and bad) and try each year to make the event better. We must pay special tribute to those who braved the elements on Sunday night. We've had rain in the past... we're in England... but nothing on the relentless scale we saw. Whilst rain never makes us cancel an event (it's usually wind)... we couldn't believe the resilience of the crowd last night, you were truly hardy. Thank you!
So as we commence the task of packing up, we'd like to say thank you again and hope to see you back in 2018
