Thread Name: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
Subject: RE: So how was Sidmouth 2012 for you?
Dave and Tug: the sign was actually at Manningtree Station, which is on the line from Colchester to Harwich and Frinton.
And when I lived in Torquay and Teignmouth in the 70s, it was also known there as the "Costa Geriatrica"!

FloraG: I think the Middle Bar Singers woud be reluctant to leave the Anchor after well over 30 years there: it was a huge, but inescapable decision, to move to the upstairs room when the mezzanine was no longer available. There were then some occasional "soundspill" problems from the ceilidhs in the back yrd, but nothing like the levels or persistence reached now!

And as Jack says, drinks prices were pretty much as (or less than) those of us who live in Scotland's wonderful capital have to pay: and the cider was so much better and NOT chilled out of existence - great!
