Audience and Practitioner Feedback
I attended the Saturday and enjoyed it a lot and would be interested in being part again both through the WAP but also as a practitioner. Both shows I saw were very good and there was a lovely atmosphere too. Steve Wilson, Worcestershire County Arts Development Officer
Chatting to Clare it sounded like it was a lovely event, they really enjoyed performing for your audiences. Ben, Hijinx Theatre
I was commissioned by Reaction Theatre Makers for FEAST theatre festival, to transform the venue by creating a decadent yet urban feel to three specific areas. The audience seemed totally relaxed in their new environment, and fully absorbed into the varied array of performance on offer for all ages. Kate Cox, Clik Clik Collective
It was really exciting to see the success Michelle and Tiffany have created with FEAST. As a brand new festival, it fully engaged it's local community, and I was very impressed with how they had mobilised and inspired a wide range of people to come and see work, talk about it, eat together and have a valuable creative experience. I attended 2 performances, both of good quality with very strong audiences, and enjoyed spending time speaking to the local creatives about their work and projects with my Independent Producer Hat on.
I think building something new, and pushing people's expectations of what theatre can be is always challenging, Tiffany and Michelle have clearly built trust with a local audience through their longer term programming of the Cube, and this trust carried through to FEAST, which alongside their enthusiasm, passion and commitment led to a busy, buzzy festival. Pippa Frith, Independent Theatre Producer
We were delighted to bring From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads to a packed and friendly FEAST Festival in Malvern. We had a great experience, and this is the kind of initiative that needs further support. We would happily return. Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads Prouction Team
Thank you ever so much for inviting us and finding us such a special audience. We would be honoured to be involved again next year, and look forward to working together again in the future. Seren, Playback Theatre Company
Rebecca and I attended the family day on the Sunday. We assisted with the mask making which was very well received by both adults & children. I heard very good feedback regarding the performances from families partaking in the mask making sessions. There was a very relaxed atmosphere where families could enjoy time together watching the performances, enjoying refreshments and taking part in craft activities. Look forward to the next one! Tina Palmer, All About Malvern
FEAST Fest was a warm, welcoming and off-the-beaten-track event, bringing together a wonderful variety of workshops, performances and Q&As that not only appealed to different audiences, but encouraged audiences to try new experiences. The event had a warm, relaxed atmosphere that allowed people to meet and talk in a genuine and friendly manner, and every effort was made to give the performers everything they needed to be prepared. Even as a late addition to the programme, we were able to more or less sell out our venue, reaching an audience of people who had never encountered us before, and the warm reception we received for our show was a great ending to a thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile experience at the festival. Sam George, Director of Clown Funeral
To be part of the Feast Festival has been a very gratify in all ways. As a performer I just have a huge gratitud to the audience who saw the show and gave me a lovely feedback, it was a gift all their words. Also, meeting new people and sharing with other puppeteer has been a plesure. Thank you very much for such a friendly, warm and charming Festival. Araceli Cabrera Cáceres, The Secret Keeper
So rarely these days do you get a chance as a parent to spend a day with your children without the invasion of technology and the shared experience I enjoyed with my children of 9 and 4, on the family day of the Feast festival, is something I shall never forget. The various sessions and events planned through the day were inspired and thoughtful providing a unique environment in which to enjoy theatre and the arts, thank you. Russell Lewis Photography
