Subject: RE: Sidmouth 2005 - CAMPING
Blowzabella poses a very good question.

Why oppose any festival?

I guess in the case of Sidmouth it's because so many people are upset at the loss (as they see it) of the U.K.'s premier folk festival and the departure of Steve Heap and Mrs. Casey Music.

It is sad though that when some people are trying to keep a small event going in Sidmouth they suffer continued attacks on this board and others.

If you don't think Sidmouth will be as good as in the past then go elsewhere. That's what I'm doing. I'm going to the new Eastleigh Festival in early August this year and maybe a bit of Broadstairs as well.

But I won't criticise those heading back to Sidmouth.

I hope they still have a great time and I'm sure they will.
