Thread Name: Sidmouth Folkweek 2015
Subject: RE: Sidmouth Folkweek 2015
Trying to understand the byzantine ticket structure:
1. The ticket that CJB refers to appears to include all concerts. There is a cheaper ticket that excludes the Ham events.
2. The all in one ticket suggests that it should include everything other entries on the same web page suggest that workshops are extra. Somebody with inside knowledge will have to say if that is the case or if it is just a bit of crap copy writing.
3. A season works out, pro rata, more expensive that Towersey but not by much. Day tickets are the same price for both.

I have heard from other sources that the social dance side is a shadow of what it used to be.

Prices aren't bargain basement but look reasonable if you are going to take full advantage of the ticketed events. If only part of the programme appeals then that is another matter. Not that it matters to me, Sidmouth isn't on my list of festivals this year.
