Thread Name: Raising Money to Save Sidmouth Festival
Subject: RE: Raising Money to Save Sidmouth Festival
I must admit that I have only been to Sidmouth once in recent years, I do have very fond memories of the 60's & 70's though. It doesn't have to be run on the scale that Steve Heap ran it on, the real essence of Sidmouth is what happens in the streets and pubs, perhaps a smaller festivals for a few years would do no harm at all.

£300,000 is a lot of money to raise, I would be prepared to take part in money raising events, I could suggest to my local folk club that we should do a benefit, it would only raise £300 at most, are there 999 similar offers out there.
