Thread Name: Sidmouth Folkweek 2015
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folkweek 2015
Hate to disagree with you Derek but Sidmouth is quite definitely expensive for all sorts off reasons.

I would say that most folk festival goers are prepared to pay what ever the economics dictate in order to enjoy their particular hobby / interest but there are limits.

I have just attended the second Yorkshire Folk Dance Weekend and a couple of people who are obviously dance devotees felt that what is on offer at Sidmouth for serious dancers is certainly not good value. When I enquired in what way they both said that the current online programme seemed to indicate only one workshop and one dance a day that would interest them.

I pointed out to them that that was by no means the full programme and that a further investigation in a few weeks might be more revealing.

You (we) do your (our) bit but obviously the BIG names that cost the most are given the most puff.
