Subject: RE: Sidmouth, young and old: a concern
I think big festivals work best if you go primarily for the concerts. I don't think going with the expectation of "becoming" part of the fringe on a first visit is realistic.

Apart from finding it easier to get a seat now, I fitted in just fine at Whitby from my first visit.   But then I'm mainly an instrumentalist - having dropped into a few singing sessions like the Endeavour and seeing how little space newbies got, I decided I didn't need that. (I think the Station Hotel front room might be the best option for a singer new to Whitby).
