Dick The Box Review: Sidmouth '08 (113* d) RE: Review: Sidmouth '08 06 Sep 08

I was reading Steve Wozniak's site at a few days ago. He writes extensively about Sidmouth (and other festivals) and has strong views - which you may or may not agree with! However, regardless of whether you consider him to be a visionary genius or a complete tosser, in amongst the reams of text is raised the idea of scrapping the Bulverton as a venue on the grounds that it is the least cost effective of the Sidmouth venues (especially in view of the losses that the festival has made in the last three years). I must say that I was not impressed with the new layout, it is a muddy and steep trek to get to it, it is not at the heart of the festival (apart from LNE), it is one of the major contributors to noise pollution (why does it have to be so loud? it must piss off the residents of upper Sidmouth big time), it is probably a big target for Environmental Health and Licensing, and it is probably the second most costly venue behind the Ham. Should the venue be scrapped, moved or kept? Does it serve a useful and popular purpose apart from LNE? Is it cost-effective? Any comments?

PS I am neutral on this one - I am just promoting a discussion.....
