GUEST,moira(flyingcat) Sidmouth Festival as it happens (95* d) RE: Sidmouth Festival as it happens 06 Aug 11


I thought the festival was great this year as usual. A few comments though (I also couldnt find a feedback form)
I found it a bit off when one of the performers apologised in advance if the voice wasn't up to scratch after having been up till four O'clock that morning singing and carousing with friends (not the exact words but that was what was meant). Don't think this is a very professional comment to make in front of an audience who have paid to see you.
My only other complaint was the Manor Pavilion stewarding. Both concerts I attended there were spoiled by people being allowed in at the back and expecting people to stand up to allow them to get to vacant seats all while performers were actually singing. Might I suggest that the the back door is stewarded or at least a sign put on the door asking people not to enter till they hear the applause. This has worked well in the past.
Lots of good stuff going tho, the sound in the pavillion was brilliant as were all the other events i usually attend were brillant too. Roll on next year and I wouldn't have Joanie's job for anything!
