Quotation Mark Here's the email i just sent to the band (OK, it's more then a line or two, but you know how Marillion fans are, we allways cheat): Am I the happiest person on the world after that weekend? No, probably not, as there's been 3000 other people receiving the incredible gift you gave to us this weekend. So i guess they're equally as happy as i am. But the rest of the world really doesn't know what happiness means untill they've been to one of your conventions. Honestly. Thank you once again for everything you do. You've written the soundtrack of my live and played most of that over the past three nights. Incredible. Happiness ain't at the end of the road, happiness is the road! The rest of the world will have to take our word on that - Hylke ter Balls

Quotation Mark Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - Alesandro Carmassi

Quotation Mark I’ve been to every Marillion Weekend since 2003. 2019 topped the lot. Simple as that - Brian Simms

Quotation Mark A comment or two... or more. My overwhelming feeling, without a shadow of doubt, is that there is a lot of love out there. Love, kindness and an overwhelming generosity of spirit. Everywhere I went, people were smiling, sharing jokes, sharing memories of other conventions, other gigs. Old friendships were being renewed, new friendships being made. I had the enviable task of setting up the charity raffle… what a joyous 'job' that was, people queuing up to hand over money, but many of them not at all interested in winning any of the prizes, simply a wish to support PACE. What an easy job!

Then I can't count the number of times a smiling face would appear and someone would say 'I have a little something for you' and a gift would be pressed into my hand. On Saturday afternoon, I sat back from the raffle and just watched... people buying hearts, raffle tickets, or simply 'chewing the fat' with each other... people from all over the world, all ages, men, women... smiles, laughs and sometimes outrageous guffaws over a shared joke. Staff from PZ joining in, lending a helping hand. To be honest, I shed a few tears of happiness. If only life could always be like that.

On Sunday, I joined the queue for the evening show,I was there for 8.30 (I know all the arguments, don't go there!) again, what fun, sharing our news, catching up with each other, and laughter... there is ALWAYS laughter. And again, that generosity of spirit. As an old dear with crocked knees, it's not easy to get to the front and Sunday was one of the occasions that knees wobbled as I dashed across the room. Not to worry, no less than FIVE people shouted at me to say there was a space for me with them. The shows were fabulous, the music, the lights, the people, the singing. I WISH we could bottle what went on over the weekend at PZ. I'd call it 'Love for the world'. Thank you again PZ and everyone there. I can't wait to do it again - Sheelagh Jones

Quotation Mark To sum up... As a PZ virgin, I had an idea of what to expect, having done Montreal and Poland before. But the warmth of community, the laughter with friends, the putting of live faces and real in-person hugs to the names I’ve chatted with online, getting to finally see the Quiz live, and yes, THE MUSIC... a little overwhelming, a lot exhausting but absolutely worth every moment and penny! I am so very full of metta and love for this community of freaks who become family for this beautiful weekend! - Nicole Arel

Quotation Mark Spending time with the family and the best band in the world in such a place is irreplaceable. A perfect organisation, the band members on top of their form, many hugs and smiles, little sleep, all that makes a perfect weekend with nothing to add. Or maybe ... more cowbell! PS: only people who were present at the fancy dress party might get my last sentence - Pascal Gross

Quotation Mark A taste of how the world should be, in addition to the beyond wonderful music of my favorite band! - Veronika Hørven Jensen

Quotation Mark Music, Friends, Lights, Madness & peace... How wonderful - Mark Donald

Quotation Mark I'll comment when I wake up - Terry Baynham

Quotation Mark I had: Tears of joy. Pain in the stomach from laughter. Goosebumps from Rothers guitar and Martin singing the last straw. Hugs from people all over the planet. Just a better world - Norbert Middelmann

Quotation Mark Anticipation, Excitement, Reunions, Friends, Love, Chalets, Costumes, Booze, Parties, Fun, Music, Visuals, Tears, Laughter, Goodbyes, Memories - Fiona Boubert
