Alex Winters, Creator and Organiser of Gung-Ho!, commented:

“The event held at Royal Windsor Racecourse was our most enjoyable of the year. The preparation and set up was smooth, the venue was perfect and the feedback from both the public and our own representatives has been better than we could have imagined.  We decided within minutes of seeing the racecourse that it was the venue we wanted. What really made a difference and one of the main reasons we are returning is because of the absolute professional communication and assistance from Ola and the Royal Windsor event team.  They were amazing and couldn’t be more helpful.  We are really looking forward to returning in 2016.”
