Thread Name: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
I had probably the best Sidmouth bar none. No hangovers, some stonking sessions both in The Bedford (singing and playing) and The Swan (also singing and playing), went to my usual couple of concerts that I fancied, renewed old friendships and finally used the festival campsite for the first time. I will certainly be doing that next year too.
My personal thanks go to Colin & Bev Pyne, who work till they drop during the folk week, and I know how hard they work the rest of the year for the festival.
The organisers really have taken up the mantle in my mind and are moving this wonderful festival in the right direction so a big thanks to you and the volunteer stewards too.
