Subject: RE: Sidmouth 2012
Hi Jack, I've not been to Whitby Festival but have been to Sidmouth many times: it is simply a massive festival with so many facets/genres to it, so you'll be bound to find something you enjoy: plenty of instrumental and mixed sessions, as I know you play a variety of instruments.
I have in the past bought a season ticket, and worked hard to make it pay for itself as well as attend plenty of Fringe events. There are quite a lot of dance events, but not as much as in pre-50th days, as there are not the same number of international teams coming any more.
Quite a good Scottish representation this year.
Have never had to camp: for years we stayed with the in-laws, but now both, sadly, departed this world. Last year we found B & B in a village in but 3 miles out of town.
