Thread Name: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
I had a grand time at Sidmouth. I was stewarding in the Bedford every day so got to see some great stuff there - familiar and unfamiliar (one of the joys of stewarding). I loved the fact the Spooky Men were everywhere, so that even though I couldn't make the Monday night gig in the Ham (I was on duty) I didn't feel I'd missed out. The silent ceilidh/disco was my first, and it was a hoot, although after one dance in the ceilidh, I've realised I'm very unfit and need to do it more often. I enjoyed so many other acts I'm not even going to bother to list them. It's interesting that because it's such a huge festival, when you read other people's reports they could have been at a completely different one! I'd just like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making it such a good week. I'm now exhausted and recovering from drinking more cider in a week than I normally drink in a year (which isn't very much by the way!)
