Exhibitor Testimonials

See what previous exhibitors have had to say about the Festival of Nature

A happy and successful festival. A credit to Bristol with the exhibitors and participants assisted by the Bristol Natural History Consortium. A fantastic weekend and an event worthy of it national and international standing.”

Tim Corner, Bristol and Region Environmental Records Centre

“The Bristol Festival of Nature is a wonderful place for us to really connect with the public and to meet up with like-minded organisations who we can work with in the future towards our common goal of connecting the public with the natural world and the many conservation organisations that are working tirelessly to promote and protect it.” 

Pete Dawson, North Somerset Butterfly House

“The best organisation I’ve seen for an event this scale, incuding some major national events. All bookings and questions were sorted well in advance and nothing was too much trouble – we had everything we needed on the day to get on with our exhibit. It was a really great experience for us.”

Rose Bavage, University of Leeds
