Subject: RE: Sidmouth FolkWeek 2008
Finally back in Sweden after many Festivals. Among them Sidmouth.
Spent most time there between Herbaceous Border on the esplanade, and the Anchor Garden lunchtime ceilidhs. also via the Newt. Where Terry and I had a laugh or two.
Jacks bar in the cellar of the Bedford and The Ship were my other haunts.

Looked in on the Radway - mostly diddley stuff like the Swan Not my cup of tea. As was the main bar session in the Bedford.
Got some dots from John the Rugby Club.
Caught Derek's talk on RVW. That was good.
Sorry Surreysinger I missed your Lucy bit. Found out next day.
The Volunteer was too far up the street for me.
In fact I found the whole of Sidmouth was far too spread out.
Missed you Lemon lady so never got a drink of that sort.
Sue. I had a really great time with the Hosepipe Band and all of HB.

Met a few friends and made a few new ones.
Having done them both now, i.e. Sidmouth and Broadstairs.
I must say that of the two, I prefer Broadstairs. Not so far to walk between venues there.
