Thread Name: Sidmouth Ripoff!
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Ripoff!
Well, you're another brand new guest, just like "Chris Porter", who claims to have been attending Sidmouth for the past 37 years but strangely enough, there is no record of anyone of that name on the festival database.

He is also having a public go at Sidmouth, and focusing on the same issues around ceilidh, citing numbers thereof, etc. Pretty soon you'll be telling me about your work with various ballet companies, which somehow gives you the credentials to sit in judgement on folk festivals.

Sorry, whoever you are, but I don't have time to play in your sandpit any more. I have a festival to organise. You are a troll, and I claim my 5.

To the genuine contributors to this thread: please feel free to get in touch through the more formal channels (ie, festival email) if you feel you wish to comment further, and I will do my best to respond appropriately to your concerns.
