A huge thank you to everyone who visited and took part, making the event such an outstanding one - without you Art on the Street cannot exist. We have a few personal 'Thank You's' for some very special people, so apologies in advance for rattling on...
Firstly, a huge thanks to our friends and sponsors at Claires Court Schools. They work alongside us... every step of the way, rocking up at 7am to help set-up the event and the performances on the CC Stage blew everyone away. We love you loads!
Carly, Mac and their fantastic team at Maidenhead Live for all the wonderful live music and all the hard work that goes in behind the scenes to bring it onto a High Street. There's no crisis that they can't overcome.
The, frankly, awesome crew of helpers who rocked up at 7am to help set-up the event. Particular love goes out to 124 Studios, Bovilles Art Shop and all the friends and partners they dragged along with them! We love you all more than prosecco.
Our glorious friends at our beloved Maidenhead Advertiser. They've supported us from the start and occasionally they let us hug them (they have to be restrained, otherwise we'd be clinging to them like koalas all day long). A particular thanks goes to Nicola Hine for making us collapse with laughter on Saturday afternoon.
Jane Wright & her team at the Nicholsons Shopping Centre for accommodating us at the eleventh hour, despite being pretty well packed throughout the centre for Christmas.
The Dalai Lama of Design, Jon Gray of Grayscale Design, for being the calmest human being in the face of barrages of emails that essentially just say 'HEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPOHHMYGAWDDD!!!'.
SL6 Supper Club for bringing delicious food to our event and making sure that we all actually ate!
Maria Evans, bringer of cakes, kindness and serenity. What a star!
Our husbands: Clyde, Jon & Andy, for their unfailing patience and support.
All the truly MAGNIFICENT retailers in our High Street who are so amazingly supportive of Art on the Street. Especially the Thai Shop Maidenhead, Java & Co and all the shops who have given vouchers and offers to our artists over the years.
And last, but certainly not least, every person who shared an update, put up a poster, distributed postcards, harangued their friends, tweeted, shouted and generally championed Art on the Street. If we could, we'd thank you all personally. But we all get very emotional about these matters and no-one wants to see a group of tired, fairly bruised woman openly weeping.
Hope we'll see you all next year for the TENTH Art on the Street!
Harri, Marie, Steph & Steph xxx
