Thread Name: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
Subject: RE: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
So far, Steve in sidmouth has complained about having beer in Blackmore (unpaid staff and all profit goes to the festival),
the dance floor (admittedly not perfect but the display sides all coped and the evening ceilidh-goers were tolerant),
and the volume of the rock-style ceilidh bands (which attract a younger audience, and very few bands were deafening, less than the northwest cloggies).
The stewards handled the sitation well, and the bar staff seemed to have equipment to deal with any eventuality and were always cheerful and helpful.

Surely the answer is for him to go to the many "social dance" events at St Teresa's and Stowford Rise where there are excellent permanent floors, cups of tea available, and quiet trios and duos.
Leave us to enjoy our ceilidhs and show our appreciation the efforts of the organisers, stewards and barstaff,
