“It is in these difficult times that great art is often produced. What you are doing in Kingston is unique, there is no other festival of its kind in the country and you should feel proud that it is taking place right here, in your town.” – HRH The Earl of Wessex speaking at the Creative Youth From Amazon showcase at the Rose Theatre in January 2011.
