Subject: RE: Sidmouth 2018: York and Faulkner
I'm very sorry this is finishing. It was a staple event for me at Sidmouth and probably tips the balance for my not going again. I enjoyed the Volunteer but it became a bit musichall, was always rather exclusive and I hear has been flattened anyway. The Roger's bar at the Pavilion/Arts Centre was good for years either side of midday but got the chop. I know Tim and Kitty have continued this in the Y&F but the Roger's bar had a unique seaside plus folkies atmosphere. The Middle Bar was excellent in the cellarish room but had no atmosphere upstairs plus outside noise. Last times at Sidmouth I've gone walkies all day and come to the York and Faulk for my evening. Guess that's it.
