Subject: RE: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
Sidmouth has always had a problem finding suitable venues for different kinds of events. There is no point whinging about noise in or from pubs and pub gardens, since these are working pubs not dedicated concert or dance venues - and at least the ceilidhs and concerts in the Anchor garden in particular do include festival guests.

A lot of people come because they enjoy the fringe and are willing to put money in collecting tins. Doing away with free events wouldn't result in increased ticket sales.
