Hi

How do I modify/customise the validation messages?

At the moment if I don't enter a field, I get "The value '' is invalid."
I would like to make this more personalised or at least change it to "You must enter this field" or "You must enter your name"

Assuming you're using standard validation mechanism, then you can decorate the properties of your model with data annotations. Something like:
public class Person
{
     [Required(ErrorMessage = "You must enter your first name")]
     public string FirstName { get; set; }

     [Required(ErrorMessage = "You must enter your last name")]
     public string LastName { get; set; }
}
