Wow! What an amazing time we had at The Sidmouth Folk Festival last week – celebrating our 65th birthday in style – despite the impact of the whirlwind weather on planned finale events. Thanks to all of YOU who came along and made it such a special event. And thanks to both audiences and volunteers for your huge understanding and support in the face of adversity!

As Festival director John Braithwaite says, “We are likely to remember this year’s event for a long time for a whole host of reasons. There were those Special Sidmouth events, that you cannot get elsewhere, which all lived up to their billing. Thanks to all our volunteers and crews and most of all to you for coming along to make the 65th an event to be talked about long into the future. The 66th is already on the blocks, so get the dates  into your diaries and look out for Super Early Bird Seasons going on sale in mid-December.”

Next year’s Sidmouth Folk Festival runs from 31st July – 7th August 2020
