I have tried to sing at the Anchor on several ocassions in the last few years but find the smoky atmosphere reduces my voice to a squeek - never could cope with cigarette smoke.

Is there singing in the open or with fresh air anywhere? - I used to do well in the garden at the Swan and in the shelter at the end of the promenade, that is between the river and the life boat building.

Thanks Kitty

The Theatre. Is that between the croquet lawn and the Arena, on the left?

Although I have been visiting the I.F.F. for decades I have not been able to stay long since I got married.

Do they have lunchtime and evening sessions at the threatre or is it less regular?

I actually find it quite difficult to find out what goes on, other than the really big things - and I have frequently found myself at a loose end so I just find a spot and sing/play/talk to people so as not to feel I am wasting what time I have.

I will try to get there for early evening Friday 1/8 but have to be back home for Monday morning 4/8 - even then I have to throw my hat in first...

I think you've got the location of the Theatre Bar (in the Manor Pavilion) about right.

If you're arriving on Friday, and don't want to be kippered in the Anchor, you might try the back garden of the Volunteer, for the (fringe/ unprogrammed) Ashby-de-la-Zouch folk club session.

There will be a singaround in the Theatre Bar on Saturday from noon till 2pm, and on Sunday from 10.30am until 2pm.

For the first time, there will be a marquee in the garden of the Volunteer, and John McDonald aka Maca will be running song and music sessions every afternoon from Saturday 2 August.

Find someone with a working programme to see what's on where when.

The Bedford's quite airy if you can get near the windows, but too many smokers for comfort sometimes. Don't just borrow a working programme, buy one, it's well worth it to know where all the official events are, hour by hour, but still doesn't include things like the Middle Bar or Bedford sessions. Also pick up the daily free newsletter for any late changes or more exact timings of concerts.

"The Bedford's quite airy if you can get near the windows" - otherwise you need an oxygen mask.

I'll be there all week from Friday lunch in. I hope to run into a few of the rest of us. I'll be in the Theatre Bar anyway, from time to time, and up the Volunteer. Haven't looked at the working programme yet - I do that on the train down.

Bring your waterproofs - I suspect this is going to be a wet one again...

Being an ex-smoker of over 10 years standing, it surprises me just how many musicians smoke. I've got to say I do suffer a bit after a couple of days sitting in the middle at the Bedford, but then again all of the pubs are going to be smoke filled. Did someone say that the Theatre bar was better? I'm glad to see Maca (John MacDonald) is around again - is Izzy going to be there too?

Not long now - counting down and getting 'demob' happy.

In the Theatre bar people pop out if they want a smoke. I can't recall seeing anyone smoking in a song session there. I doubt if the people who'd rather they didn't would accept smoking during the singing without protest. No spitting, no smoking.

I think so - it always rains when I go to Sidmouth.

All the other days can be blistering - the sand, the heat, the flies, smell of camels etc - as soon as I hit the outskirts of town the rainclouds gather for a monsoon session, I leave and the sun breaks through.

Thanks for the details of sessions I will wander around and see what the breathability is in each one.

One year, 1997, I had to vist Bath during the festival i left Sidmouth in drizzling rain rain which after I got out of the valley it was brilliant sunshine all the to Avon - and back- as I decended in to valley it returned to wet and mist, the clouds like the festivsl as much as we do.

I usually take the arena in at least once during the week, but only to take in the atmosphere, and maybe try a few things on the music stalls there anmd see if anything takes my fancy. I also like to take the odd concert in. The one for me this year has got to be 'Last Nights Fun' at the Ham on the last Friday. It's about time they were booked at Sidmouth. I see the weather men are saying that they might be using the word 'Hot' next week - here's hoping.

Wouldn't miss the Arena for worlds. The combination of foreign sides and native sides are the unique thing about Sidmouth.

Or mnaybe the unqie thing is that there are a whole range of intertwining Sidmouth Festivals co-existing, and we can all put together the one that suits us.

I think you've hit it on the head McGrath, or at least for me. The purchase of a season ticket for me would be useless, as I try to see those acts that interest me, I do the sessions, and sometimes the Esplanade too. Even managed to get Alan Bell out on the sea-front about 3 years back. His hands have stopped him now I'm afraid, but what a voice. Anyway as you said I do think Sidmouth is a range of intertwining festivals, each complementing the other, and long may it be so.

I managed Friday evening, all Saturday, and Sunday to about ten pm - and it never rained - must be climate change.

I sang in the Theatre bar - that was good, took my drum on the promenade, and the factor 60 sun screen, still got sunburnt, but not badly unlike some folks who were the same colour as my breakfast lobster.

The tent in the back of the Volunteer was not bad Friday and Saturday, but Sunday it was more crouded and there were people talking just as though they were sitting in front of their TVs at home - I couldn't hear any of the singers very well - and the talkers were not going to shut up for anybody. I had intended to stay to closing time, but eventually I just gave up and came home.

The weather was great and I caught Berroguetto Uiscedwr and John K(an awesome concert), Folkestra North, Spiers and Boden and Altan. The latter arrived from New York with no luggage and no bouzouki. They borrowed clothes including a maternity smock, a instrument from one of the music shops and so on. Amazing. I felt they were just starting to get going when they ended.

Great sessions in the Bedford and an awsome one in the Anchor I think Tuesday night. Rodney Miller was out of this world. Cold Drinks party with the Smiths was great - thanks Ian.

I particularly enjoyed the sea songs and shanties session on Tuesday night with Mike, Chris and Derek. While I didn't get round to singing John Dead, Three Jolly Fishermen or Sons of the Sea, as I had intended, I did sing Row On and Sailor's Prayer and I had the honour of finishing it off with the Farewell Shanty.
