Subject: RE: Lancaster Letter
Some local residents are never pleased by Folk Events. On my one and only visit to Sidmouth Festival I was amazed by the outright hositlity by the town to the event. The local paper was full of letters saying 'Why do we need to put up with thsi every year ?' and 'They never spend any money in the town !!' and other such vitriolic rubbish. This compared to postitive attitude at towns like Broadstairs where the potetial demise of the Festival was greeted with dismay by the local businesses and pubs.
