Thread Name: Sidmouth Excitement!
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Excitement!
To use the mis-quote above, I'd rather be "doomed" and go out singing in a blaze of glory along-side like minded folk than sit back with a smug 'I told you so' smile as the last embers of a once great festival fizzled out for the last time and bemaon the loss of something that I profess to care about.
If you care about, and want to see the return of, the International Festival then stop deriding those who are trying to keep the tradition alive by organising a 'different' back to grass roots festival this year. If this years festival was not taking place it would be much harder to get it off the ground next year as many regulars would have found another fixture to fill the void.
Please only post positve messages for Sidmouth if you really care, if you want to detract from Sidmouth please start your own thread called 'Sidmouth Miseries' or similar.
