Testimonials

- "Moving on to Bury St Edmunds, I must admit that until Monday, I didn’t know this little historic town existed. The people and the place was second to none and I suppose the weather helped on this occasion. Also, I’ve never sold so many books in three demos as I did there! I will definitely be going back! My assistant, Tony Locke (@tony_locke), loved the big stage. The only problem was, I couldn’t stop him from talking! So no mic for you next time, Tony! (Ha-ha!) So thank you to all of you who were involved for making my life a piece of cake!" - Aldo Zilli, Celebrity Chef
