Hi Jim & Richard
I'm sure you will enjoy Bideford - its a great little festival!
But I'll miss you at Sidmouth and I must take issue with you about your anti-Sidmouth comment:-
"I decided, for lots of reasons, to give Sidmouth a miss this year and concentrate on the smaller Festivals which are non commercial and more "Fringe" oriented - where the "Real Folk" is!!"
Yes, I like the smaller festivals as well but there's loads of fringe at Sidmouth and at Whitby for that matter, unlike many other large festivals such as Towersey & Chippenham.
