  • Hi Russell
    Thank you very much for such an enjoyable trip yesterday.
    I'm sure you know that all aboard had a fantastic time and will be talking about for months to come.
    Our lunch was also very enjoyable as was the whole day.
    We hope you enjoy your day on Friday and the rest of the ceremonies.
    Best regards

  • Hello Russ
    It was so cool to travel to my first festival with Urban Truant. I loved the thrill of the ride and my Mum appreciated not having to queue for hours too. We were really well looked after and felt in good hands.
