Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folk Festival 2014
Derek, I understand where you are coming from, but to ignore the enormous contribution of the Festival Fringe is in my opinion a big mistake. If it were it not for the Festival Fringe, the only evidence of a festival would be the Ham Marquee, and the Blackmore Gardens, not exactly the whole town. It is the Fringe that first grabed me and many of my friends, its direction now may be doing the same to the next generation, I just worry about that direction.
