I attended the first Festival of Business Woodley in 2014 and was impressed with the support from all the local businesses. So impressed that I agreed to join the committee for the following 2 years. It is a great event and the committee put a lot of work into making the event the success it is each year. For the year 2017 I have been unable to attend the committee meetings, but have continued my support through the newly designed and hosting of the Festival of Business Website.
We were delighted to host the Woodley Festival of Business again this year. It’s a wonderful opportunity from a Council perspective to meet local business men and women and see first-hand the range of businesses we have within our community. It was very well organised and included a nice variety of exhibitors. Addington School surpass expectation every year, providing a fantastic variety of savoury and sweet treats for participants and guests. The students were so engaging, keen to share what they love about their school and how they had prepared for the event.” Alison Mulvany – Venues and Bookings Manager, The Oakwood Centre
Just to say congratulations on a very well organised event last night. Some specific feedback for you: • Venue was really good – light, clean, plenty of space. • The quality of food was impressive – the school did an amazing job • From a stand holder’s viewpoint – we were welcomed by friendly helpers who directed us where to go and where nothing was too much trouble. • Felt there was a real buzz around the room. • Value for money
Great to see an all-female podium and they all had a really interesting message.
It was a really good evening. I’d certainly like to be more involved in the future. It was very useful and nice to see the multitude of businesses in the area.
I wanted to send you and your Woodley Business Club colleagues my congratulations on running a very good event last week – there was a real buzz in the room and I made some interesting new contacts (already knew quite a lot of people there too!).
I had a stall at the festival of Business Woodley this year 2015. I also attended 2014 as a customer and can say that there was a positive difference between the two events and how 2015 was busier and certainly beneficial to my business. I felt 2014 was too fragmented and liked the fact that this year had been changed for better interaction between attendees.
Thank you for all your hard work in organising a very enjoyable and informative evening yesterday.
For the small fee I paid to exhibit it was an excellent event. Well organised, great attendance and some great leads, I look forward to next years event.

Made some great contacts and thoroughly enjoyed it – unfortunately due to other commitments was unable to stay to hear the speakers. Thank you.
Lovely to see the youngsters from Addington being involved.
Really enjoyed the event! I am now working with one of the businesses I met at the event! They’re now a client 🙂
Great job done by all the committee.
