Survey
We will soon be sending out a short questionnaire to get some feedback and gauge everyone's views. As always your participation and co-creation in this is much appreciated and will help to make things even better for everyone next year. Thank you. :)
Co-Creation
The Laughter Festival is a not-for-profit co-creation event. This means we all played an important role in making it happen and many of you volunteered your time and talents above and beyond the call of duty both in advance and throughout the weekend.

Thank you for making the whole experience fun, professional and pleasurable :-) Thank you.

The Spa
We hope you enjoyed the hydrotherapy spa and sauna and got to experience the lush warm compost showers, hot tub and plunge pool. :)

There is the slight oversight on our part in that we forgot to collect any contributions (£5) to cover the cost of electricity and maintenance of the spa facilities. If you enjoyed your experience then please consider donating directly to our Paypal account to help us cover these costs. Thank you.

Training
