Now that the ‘Beast From The East’ has cleared off, we are turning our attention to sunnier times and warmer climes with the ‘Best Of The West’ at Sidmouth FolkWeek from 3rd – 10th August 2018. A festival with a view: nestled in majestic red cliffs and green valleys, the seaside town offers a unique setting for eight full days of the best in folk music, dance and song each year in the first week of August.

As the first hopeful signs of Spring arrive, be sure to be that proverbial ‘early bird’ and get your best value, flexible option Early Bird Tickets for what promises to be the best festival of the summer.

Amongst some of the great new additions to that variety are some special afternoon ‘In Conversation’ events including Billy Bragg talking to Colin Irwin about Roots, Radicals and Rockers and Peggy Seeger with Sandra Kerr discussing First Time Ever.

As journalist Colin Irwin says himself: “There are festivals…and there’s Sidmouth. Still uniquely glorious and gloriously unique after all these years.” Colin Irwin
