GUEST,Anne Croucher Sidmouth Tickets (190* d) RE: Sidmouth Tickets 13 Mar 05

It was 1970. I think. You know what they say about if you can remember...I forget the rest.

The fence was torn down and security went crazy, then the festival was declared free - there were rumours about the Black Panthers being there but all I saw were some rather grubby youths waving fists in the air and trying to look revolutionary. They failed.

I was interviewed for the TV - there was this man in a grey suit and pink shirt, 'These look weird enough' he said to his camera crew as they approached - I looked at him, then looked around, then back at him (the only guy in the arena to be wearing a suit)

The guy standing behind him doing the sound with the tribble on a stick was having severe trouble not laughing out loud for the whole of the interview. I did wonder if it affected the sound quality, and the interviewer kept glancing down at the microphone as it quivered and wondering what the Hell was going on behind him, I expect.

You just have to find what amusement you can in whatever situation you find yourself.

By the way the police in plain clothes really were still wearing their shiny black boots. They arrived on duty freshly washed and shaved and they did wander around saying 'want to score, man?' to everyone they met. I could only asume they did not want to arrest anyone and so deliberately made themselves conspicuous. It did add to the general weirdness of the experience.
