Councilor Ray Hassall, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Sport and Culture, having decided to reprieve Artsfest for another year (quoted in The Stirrer):
“The reorganisation has totally paid off, and it’s been very successful” Hassall explained.
“Wherever I’ve been, it’s been packed. The question now is how do we look at adding to that?
“The arts team have gone away and brought back something that’s really hit home.”
