The Bulverton is The Sidmouth Folk Festival’s party central venue for a great night out, where everybody is welcome! Every night, party-goers of all ages gather to meet friends, enjoy the music and to dance the night away. It’s a great place to relax and socialise too, with a fantastic range of locally-sourced food and drink catering for all tastes, from bison burgers to vegan kebabs. 

The venue is situated one and a half miles from the centre of town on the B1376 Bulverton Road, opposite the festival campsite. There’s plenty of parking at the festival car park or you can take the new free shuttle bus service from the town centre between 7-8pm, returning after midnight.

Unmissable bands at The Bulverton include Scotland’s incendiary Peatbog Faeries, the sensational Britain’s Got Talentfinalist Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys, and Devon’s own local hero Seth Lakeman – fresh from touring the world with Led Zeppelin superstar Robert Plant. Expect powerful and exuberant folk-rock from the mighty Merry Hell and a night of non-stop fun with Sidmouth favourites Blackbeard’s Tea Party, who invite you to their 10th anniversary party. Come dressed as a children’s TV character, or as you are!

Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for news of more special offers during the festival week, 2nd – 9th August. Don’t miss out on the best nights out of the Summer.
