Thread Name: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
Subject: RE: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
Sidmouth used to be a small festival - and still had financial problems, which is why EFDSS let John Heydon and Steve Heap take it over....
The public displays in Sidmouth have always been important for getting people interested in the music - I first saw Morris dancers at Sidmouth!
The main risk seems to be that the Arena takings depend so heavily on the weather.
