A week-long seaside celebration of music, dance and song.
There has been a folk festival in Sidmouth in the first week of August every year since 1955 attracting tens of thousands of visitors with its broad ‘something for everyone’ appeal. With an ear to the past and an eye on the future, the festival features established stars and emerging talent.
From the violin wizard that is Seth Lakeman, to the wordmeister Michael Morpago along with 698 other events, it’s a week of toe tapping and keeping culturally busy. If you like Morris Dancing, theres an overload of the stuff!
