I first met the feedback system when I went to Chester last year. My understanding of the system was that if you heard a performance that moved you in some way, then you were free to write a comment praising it. If you were not particularly inspired to write anything, then you wrote nothing. That would not mean it was a bad performance, but just that it did not reach into you as another might have done.
Yes, I blatantly nicked an idea that was originally Amber's
for the 1st Surrey Adult Learner gig for Chester
But yes, you've got the concept right, gedall. Negative comments in individual's envelopes aren't on.
I'm glad you nicked it Barry! The reason I suggested it originally was because I have a habit of only remembering the faults in my performances, and that they have a way of completely overwhelming any positive memories I may have held. I think perhaps we are all our own worst critics! So the feedback envelopes were a way to enable performers to hold on to the positives (to help combat the "internal critic" who seeks subconsciously to destroy our confidence), by literally providing "written proof" of what we did well. I'm sad to hear that this was misunderstood by someone, and that negative feedback found its way into envelopes.

I'm so glad to hear all went well, and the pictures looked great.
It would have been much nicer if you could have been there too.
Hope you are on the mend again.
I will get there. Not sure when exactly, but one day!
