Sidmouth Folk Festival Children’s Festival loves to encourage children of all ages and all musical abilities to play music together.

Some workshops are aimed at children who are already confident on playing their instruments, but we know that some of our younger visitors are also keen to take part in music workshops.

The Minims is aimed at those aged 5-8 years old who are just starting out on their musical journey. Very much a beginners band workshop, with a team of supportive tutors led by Matt Nelson.

All instruments (children do need their own instruments) are welcomed and the one-hour sessions, take place on a daily basis, with an opportunity to showcase achievements on the Friday afternoon on the Garden Stage in Blackmore Gardens.
