“It’s the people at Mitchells that really make the difference. From the cheerful support during a frantic set-up to the patient help on car parking and all the grotty and hidden jobs in between, we’d struggle to run Woolfest anywhere else.”

Marion Woolcott, Woolfest A national festival celebrating sheep and wool and all aspects of natural fibres  www.woolfest.org.uk
