The season has changed, the temperature has dropped, the light has faded…which means that it’s time for us to inject some autumnal warmth and celebration as we launch some exciting news about Sidmouth Folk Week, returning in grand style from 29th July to 5th August 2022.

We want to repeat our huge thanks to everyone who joined us for this year’s Celebration of Sidmouth Folk Festival, whether live in the town or online. We hope you had a ball! Thanks too for all the amazing support provided over the difficult last two years: it makes all the difference. And it really feels like there are brighter times ahead now. We are delighted to be working on a return to a full festival in the first week of August 2022.

We’ll be officially launching next year’s Sidmouth Folk Festival on Friday 10th December so look out for the first announcements of the 2022 line up. Many of the artists booked for 2020 will still be able to join us, alongside some previously pencilled for 2021 plus some thrilling new additions!

What can you expect in 2022? Your favourite parts of the festival back in full force!

Our roots party hub Bulverton sees some exciting new developments: upbeat Ceilidhs, spectacular Dance Displays and the tried and tested formula in the fantastic Folk Dance programme – big mornings, challenging afternoons and fun evenings – all back next year!

There will be a huge and diverse programme of Workshops again with a mixture of old favourites and some brilliantly quirky new ones. Get set for a jam-packed programme of Children’s Activities and Family Fun, plus the return of youthful pioneers, Shooting Roots – after their great success at this year’s Celebration – with an exhilarating mix of music, dance, song, crafts and drama for young people.

And…Camping will be back at our popular Bulverton Campsite!
