Thread Name: newbie guide to Sidmouth folk festival
Subject: RE: newbie guide to Sidmouth folk festival
Due to a problem with holiday/breakdown cover arrangements I couldn't steward this year, but I had made some enquiries: (as of early this year)
1) Cricket club don't take bookings, just turn up. The guy said they hadn't turned a camper van away yet. But then at Â£35 a night I don't suppose I would.
2) Rugby club are cheaper (Â£20? not sure) and take bookings during a fixed period, in the autumn as I recall. But they go very quickly.
I was looking forward to seeing the campsite improvements, after getting towed out last year. Some of the points I suggested were implemented, I believe (although not necessarily as a direct result!)
While I understand Ruth's comments, the festival campsite will never be to everyone's taste. I don't think some links to other local sites would be out of order.
The purpose of a business is, after all, to make money for its shareholders...
who made it for Friday morning and afternoon, and got unaccountably wet at an event that didn't happen.
