Thread Name: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Festival as it happens
One brief aside for the Newt (from the host), and ditto for the Radway.
And apparently none of you bothered to look at the Bedford, whose landlord, Colin Pyne, has been a stalwart supporter of Sidmouth Folk Week for more years than I care to remember, the Royal York & Falconer, or the Swan.
Without those sessions, Sidmouth would have died when Steve Heap quit, and they don't warrant a decent mention.
I wasn't able to afford to go this year because my pension wouldn't allow, and my health precluded stewarding, and if the preceeding posts represent the attendance, I may have got the best of the bargain.
I am frankly disgusted
