Steve in Sidmouth newbie guide to Sidmouth folk festival (224* d) RE: newbie guide to Sidmouth folk festival 24 Jul 10


Quote: "Jane, just to let you and any others that are interested know, the Sidmouth Indoor Market that was situated up the High Street opposite Somerfields, is now The Original Factory Shop. Ganesha Foods has survived the move and is now in the old Clarks shoe shop at the top of Old Fore Street and the Cheese Board delicatessen has also thankfully survived and moved onto the High Street just down from Somerfields."

Anyone looking for Somerfield had better look for Coop instead....and the Factory Shop sells mainly low grade rubbish. If you want an upmarket shopping experience try Waitrose. And you can park!

Anyone wholly new to Sidmouth should view photos on my website - a picture paints a thousand words and for some reason my site is not listed on the official website as a source of further information. This is despite it has far more info on many topics than does the official site.

here are the links: some of last years photos from my website

travel info: buses and other useful travel info including the only remaining petrol station in Sidmouth

One of the major changes this year is axing of the afternoon social dance - there were problems last year with House Full at some dances (although others were not full) and so this year may be tricky. Out of maybe 200 local folk dancers I know I would guess less than 5 buy a season ticket nowadays. Without some decent dance venues my guess is that this aspect of the festival will continue to decline. The Nuceilidh is an interesting idea - can't wait to see if it works (if I can get in..).
