Thread Name: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
Subject: RE: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
But they'd badly miss the money we spend while we are down there. If the council nsists on cutting the modest enough subsidy it has given, it'll be a bad mistake.
One thing I value a lot about the festival, which you don't get elsewhere in the same way, is the international dance and music teams. It puts us in a wider context, and I think that is valuable.
Very likely something will continue even if the full festival were to end. But I can't see that aspect of it, and we'll be a lot poorer without it.
