Subject: RE: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
I had a great time, as always.

As above, I also feel that the amplified sound from the garden of the Anchor is disruptive when you're trying to listen to an unaccompanied singer in the Middle Bar sessions.

I don't quite get Al's point about the festival only being for middle-class people or that the people who attend don't usually go to folk clubs. I can only speak for the people that I know, but I meet a lot of people there that I know from Kent, and every single one of them regularly attends one or more local folk clubs in Kent. And they're certainly not all middle-class!

By the way, I thought the refurbishment of the Bedford was a bit naff; especially the lighting!
