Sidmouth is unique.
Because its unique its well loved
you may hate this or hate that but it is because those things (that you hate) are there that the things you like can also be found. Once you eliminate one thing that essential element that makes the festival unique is lost.

I often wonder why certain places are not better used like the existing ad established stage or band stand in the connaught gardens. I guess the gardners have objections or the coach trippers that arrive during sidmouth week do need to get away from the hub hub of the festival. so there reasons for everything.

Personally it is the sea front atmosphere of Saturday and Sunday (+ the rest of the week) that has kept me coming back for over twenty years - the sharing forum for what all of us do naturally (sing dance and make friends)
But once over that - once you have been up and down a few times then its up and down in the arena to buy that new songbook. Then breakfast in the sailing club before I go to the Ham and gloat over those cds and then, perhaps a fiddle or plonk on a strange guitar is my heaven. Often To the detriment of my pocket and the addition of an occasional new instrument because eventually you find something you just cant do without.

Sod the artists and performers they are not the reason we go to Sidmouth - we go for the character of the place - that ethereal change from sleepy seaside town to a vibrant colourful place.
BUT and bigger BUT without alll those artists and performers both amatur and learning as well as professional, what reason would Sidmouth have to exist at all. So a big HUG to everyone who regularly come to sidmouth totreat us to your talents.

Though Cambridge and others are a stage for such performances Large and small - It is the pure diversity of Sidmouth spread out throughout a living town that makes the week a fresh discovery and adventure each year.

To define this quality comes down to encouraging the 6-12 year olds by listening to them play there recorders and violins on the seafront and then giving them lots to do at Blackmore gardens and in the arena and at workshops. Thats the strength of Sidmouth - dippping into events as your muse takes you. How many of you rememember child hood experiances in such a way.

What do I hate - perhaps to much focus on the international events I only can see 5-10% iof what is on offer anyway and Tibet or China is as good and interesting as Spain and Portugal - so quality not quantity.
I only like my type of folk singing but always can I find something on offer to make want to book or buy tickets.
Not being able to dip into spoon rattling and vocal workshops because I havent got a season ticket,is annoying. I used to be able to do these things but the event instructors are naturally fed up as they lack continuity during the week!!!.

Thees a lot of us out there who enjoy doing things but can only get there in the evenings or for three days of the week which means we cant justify a season ticket and are excluded from the real NON TICKET Unbookable events that help   make sidmouth uniuqe. So perhaps a ticket that can be dedicated to any nominated non consecutive days performanceswhether this id two - three or five days and allows you to enter all events etc. Or is such a pre bookable item in todays computer world to difficult to arrange.

Sorry Chaps If Ive said too much thats still lots more in my heart
Well done all those over the years who have worked so hard - without complainers there would no reason to exist.
Sidmouth works - don't tweak it too much - Weather is not often the problem that week so lets strive for a kitty where the good years pays for the bad. Emptying the cash box at the end of the year is not a good thing.
Theres no fence around the town so we cant charge every visitor for entry - Or perhaps a tax on all cars coming in is the answer. But wet wheather is the problem. A kitty of say 1-200K replaced by a percentage of ticket sales each year would at least guarantee some form of continuity wet or shine.
Ham Marquee is great another tent over the stage at Connought gardens a possibility for another indoor space. Explore a seated outdoor venue on the large parkland field beside the main entrance road that crosses River Sid a possibility.

It may however be that if you are regular visitor you may need to refresh your browser cache memory (Usually [F5] works), as you may be viewing and older version of the page.

Should this not work I would be interested to know a little more about the details of your system so that we can test and track down the fault.

With regard to the volume of paper; my apologies for the nature of the system but even with the printer friendly versions the longer days may take 3 pages of A4 to print. I understand that a more compact working programme is being produced for release at the event.

The printer friendly pages don't at present include the first three days of the week. After my printer gave up the struggle with the unfriendly (though pretty) version I botched up a version for those days by pasting the stuff into Word and adjusting it as necessary.

But I hope there'll be more portable versions available in Sidmouth, because mine weighs a ton.

I see that at 9am on Friday 5th there's a "Sidmouth 2005 and the Future have your say" session in the Arts Centre. That could be interesting. Could even be useful.

I missed out on joining the supporters' club because I hadn't the deadline of June 30th, and had decided to put off planning for Sidmouth until July 1st. (Apart from having our room booked since last year.)

Looking forward to miss having the International teams around. And I'm sorry the Festival in the Church isn't happening - and a bit surporised at that too, since it's an excellent venue, all ready and waiting, with great acoustics, and comfortable whatever the weather, which is more than you can say of lots of the others.

Out On the Ocean - A Musical Celebration of the Sea for SeaBritain 2005
A sparkling collection of traditional sea songs, shanties and folk tunes from fishing and coastal communities all around the British Isles, linked by poems and readings from John Masefield, Dylan Thomas, John Betjeman, Lord Tennyson and other writers with a love for the ways and lore of the sea.

And they look very pretty in their new costumes too!

And praise for Gordon Newton from me too, he really has been a stalwart.
We have become members of the Supporters Club, and will be visiting some of the concerts - and probably not the best known artists, along with being at the Bedford for a lot of the time looking after the sessions in the main bar. So I think I'll be doing my bit for the festival by contributing money and time, as I do every year. Not long to go now.

I echo the praise for Gordon Newton who has put his money where his mouth is to try and keep a folk music event alive in Sidmouth.

Sad to say though that many of the posters on mudcat seem happy to have a smaller event where they just go to sessions and dance displays instead of putting their own hands in their pockets to support Gordon and the concerts programme at the Ham.

If many of those concerts lose money in 2005 and Gordon himself loses a substantial sum who in their right sense of mind will invest time, energy and hard cash to resurrect a proper folk festival in 2006?

Lizzie is not an old buzzard. She is a very well meaning and certainly very interesting person who just happens to be a bit OTT at times. The world would be poorer without her and people like her. As for her enthusiasm for Live8 there is of course an easier way of dealing with Africa and its problems. Just confiscate the billions salted away by corrupt dictators (past and present) in western banks, repay it to the countries concerned (preferably via NGO aid so it doesn't get swallowed in administration costs) and tell all the leaders that no more ill gotten gains will be allowed to be deposited in any western or other 'first world' bank. Too simple?

The ticket structure of 2006 will be much more like the Steve Heap days - no one wants it this way - it evolved because of the way 2005 evolved and if it was not for one person (Gordon Newton from Maidstone) putting up a lot of money (over £100,000?) I doubt the forthcoming week would be anything like what is now on offer. Enthusiasm is fine Lizzie, but you need hard cash too in the real world. Even the traders in Sidmouth have been giving to Sidmouth 2006 - so there is hope yet.

Look out for lots more happening at Bulverton during the daytime too - and yet more tickets to buy!!

I agree this years's Sidmouth looks a very impressive operation, and the people who have put it together deserve our thanks. But it is a kind of life raft, and lots of important aspects of Sidmouth have had to be left out, inevitably. I think it's going to be important that things like that get registered in any feedback.

Yes, and that bit of Live8 that Lizzie homed in on there, with young Birhan Woldo, the child who didn't die, was staggering. It put the whole thing into perspective. It was beautiful.

The last three 'Guests' be they three seperate individuals or just one person:

I'm sitting here typing this whilst watching Bob Geldof on Live 8. They've just finished showing the film from 20 years ago, of all the children starving to death, dying in their mothers' arms. The film ended with a child seemingly taking her last breath. It was awful, truly awful!

Then Bob Geldof came on and said that 20 years ago that child had just a few hours left to live but somehow they managed to save her. She has just completed her University Degree and then he brought her on stage.

A staggeringly beautiful, dignified young lady walked on! Her beauty and her presence took your breath away! That was it for me. That young girl says everything about Live 8 and Bod Geldof. She proves what CAN be done if people don't give up!! It was the most moving piece of television I've seen in many a year. The crowd went absolutely WILD with joy!

So.....I pass that joy on to you all.

This Folk Week is nothing to do with Live 8. It is insignificant in proportion to what I have just seen, obviously. However, Sidmouth Folk Week is also proof of what can be done if determined people come forward to work their socks off to make something happen.

They are giving you a Folk Week that was never even going to exist this time last year. They and they alone will be responsible for old friends meeting up again in a place they love, sharing the music they love, with the people they love...perhaps even new people falling in love, not only with the music, dance and atmosphere but with each other too...all brought together by a small group of people who just never gave up!

I suggest you try and get some of that love and joy to rub off on yourselves.

Meanwhile, here is something brilliant to do with your money, instead of using up precious electricity to come in here and write negative things about people who care deeply:

http://www.oxfamunwrapped.com/

So...go out there and buy a goat...or a teacher....or some trees....or even just a few text books for the children to learn from.....enable others to be able to feed their children or support themselves....but on this 'Day Of All Days'....DO SOMETHING POSITIVE and spread some LOVE around!

And I leave you with the message that Madonna is now singing to hundreds of thousands of people, all moving and acting as One.... "Music Makes The People Come Together"

No problem printing the programme apart from it emptying the colour cartridge!

I've booked a few evening concerts and dances and found the process of planning my week so far ahead quite irritating, as I normally get there and just work it out as the week goes on. This year with camping costs I will probably still spend less than I normally would have with a season ticket as I also doubt I'll buy any more tickets when I'm there. One of the attractions of the season ticket has been the means to drift in and out of different events without thinking about the cost if you don't like something or just want to move to another event etc. especially if you've paid for it three or four months previously. The smaller names event may suffer more as people may not want to take the chance of paying to see someone they dont know, everyone knows the bigger names and will probably pay as they'll know what to expect. This year is obviously different with different sponsors supporting different venues and events under an impossibly tight planning schedule and this year's public need to be symmpathetic to that and demonstrate some understanding as the organisers have done a superb job of making the week happen at all.

Next year will be different however and McGrath is absolutely right, it will be a major issue if the season ticket is not restored. The organisers will be well aware of that too I'm sure.

Looking at the programme on the website. Very pretty, but when I clicked to print it, it wouldn't do it. Anyone else having the same problem?

I hope this idea of having no proper season tickets isn't something they are going to carry on with when the festival proper comes along, if it does. For me it'd destroy the whole feeling of freedom, having to plan everything in advance. That's what the organisers are supposed to do, not the punters.

And it'll backfire - I'll probably end up spending a lot less on tickets than I normally will, and I doubt if I'll be alone in that.

NOT EXACTLY THE SAME - the other one had a bit added. A bit on the side as it were.

Some background to the LNE turnaround is given on this webpage together with an article from todays Sidmouth Herald, should you need some light reading. All 'old' tickets for the LNE will be honoured and new ones are being printed to align with the Ham and Blackmore designs. Some events at the Ham will soon be sold out so better buy yours now.....

I would be interested if people manage to get a refund from Salcombe camping sites - apparently the Bulverton field can be extended from the one originally intended to be used this year - so there are few limits on numbers, except the Ham marquee can only take 800.....

Just arrange the weather will you Lizzie?? PLEASE.

Should you be munching on Spiers & Boden? ;0) I'm sure that's against the rules! ;0) ;0)

Good to see some happiness on this thread over the LNE. Well done Gordon Newton and the Gang!

Only 28 days to go.......

I sincerely hope so. It's a top spot for late night sessions too. Last time I was there munching on tortillas Spiers, Boden, Sartin, Wood, most of Mawkin and Glowworms all there playing along with everyone else...where else would you get that? Class stuff.

I for one am over the moon that the LNE is going to be at the Bulverton. It was always the best site for this event and I look forward to the short stumble back down the hill to my tent at the best campsite venue. Maybe a quick plate of Quesadillas from the mexican on the way. My festival is sorted, nice one!

I should imagine that there could be little complaint from the Thorn Campsite to anyone demanding a refund so they can go over to the Bulverton.

I hope some arangements will be made for those who had originally booked the Salcombe Regis site intending to be close to the LNEs. Great news though.

Anyway, as far as I can see, apart from the Arena this year's Sidmouth is going to be pretty much like it usually is (for myself and the kids at least) - a mixture of workshops, sessions, singarounds, The Anchor,Bedford, Ham, Prom, concerts, Bulverton campsite, picnics, more Anchor, LNEs, singing in the sea, etc.. - can't see what all the fuss is about personally. Looks like the organisors have done a fantastic job and should be appaluded for their efforts. How about now giving them the support they deserve by booking up, turning up - and stop the knocking !!!   It's going to be a bloody fantastic festival as usual !

See you there..

Chris
