Thread Name: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
Subject: RE: 50th and last Sidmouth festival?
If it comes to the festival and we know it's going to be the last, it'll all be one big Doom and Gloom workshop.

Most of the festival isn't too affected by rain, it's really just the Arena. They used to have a big marquee up at the Arena, and if it came on to rain too heavily, events could be rescheduled inside. That seemed a very sensible arrangement.

" the days when everyone rolled around either without washing properly for a week" - I don't think that's a serious problem. Washing facilities aren't difficult to organise. I camp at most fetsivals, though not at Sidmouth, and I can't say the campers look particularly unwashed, even when they are.
