Sidmouth FolkWeek - whether the weather

A weeks holiday by the sea at one of Europe's most rewarding festivals awaits those who have already booked for this year's Sidmouth FolkWeek and, for those thinking about it, think no more and get down to Devon!

The team that build the festival venues have worked their socks off in the most horrendous British wet weather. There may be a delay getting everyone onto the campsite, just be prepared and be patient. With over 700 programmed events a short delay caused by bad weather is no problem. Please thank those who volunteered to get you settled and camped then get down to some great concerts and dances. 

We can't control our weather but we can celebrate our music, dance and song. 

What better place? Enjoy!

Steve Heap
General Secretary, AFO
