Well we still don't have the programme. When we got to Kennaway House to report for Stewarding duties last year they had no more programmes.

How is a Steward supposed to work without a programme?

Gutted that I missed Spookymen but we couldn't purchase tickets until we knew when our duties would be. Rota only arrived last week.

Deep sigh.

Sally (The Lemonade Lady)...I'm so sorry that you won't be at Sidmouth this year, it won't be the same without you in Blackmore Gardens.

The treatment you received in that email is appalling and John Braithwaite should be ashamed of himself.

Sidmouth ain't what it once was, sadly.

I may be going there ONLY to visit a friend next week, who lives in the town, and to meet up with some other friends who are down there for the week. But for me, Sidmouth Folk Week has been very soured by some of those who are behind the scenes...and I think the way you have been treated is just the pits.

And this is Sally's post, from her Facebook page, for all those who don't have FB so were unable to access her link above, which I've re-tyrped, as I was not able to copy and paste it from the FB page..


Sophie Braithwaite's email to Sally (The Lemonade Lady)

>>>>Dear Sally,

Thank you for your application to cater at this year's festival.

There has been an amazing amount of interest so allocating pitches has been tough. Unfortunately, we didn't find one that would suit your set up this year, but would encourage you to keep in contact as set ups and situations often change.

Have a wonderful summer season.

Kind regards
Sophie Braithwaite<<<<<


John Braithwaite's email to Sophie:

>>>>"Sorry not to reply to your message. Yes, what you have done is just fine.

Oddly enough this is one we would probably never have back because she is a pain in the........argues about pitch fees etc. Now we have Salcombe with floats and the cafe with drinks in Blackmore we don't need her."<<<<


This is at the bottom of the post on Sally's FB page. I'm presuming it's a comment from Sally, herself.

"This is what can happen to a trader when they try to negotiate a pitch fee... we don't get it! Or is it what happens when you accidentally on purpose forget to delete the carbon copy in your email?"


Sorry, John, but what a truly foul way to treat someone, particularly when Sally's been Sidmouth's Lemonade Lady for so many years..

I was told about this a short while ago today, by some friends who've come down for Sidmouth. I couldn't believe it, when I heard. Sadly, I do now.

It stinks.

Well, that's embarrassing...John Braithwaite, who has been so rude to Sally, the Lemonade Lady, in his email above, is Sidmouth Folk Week's Director...

John and Stuart

Good to know the Festival I once so loved is in the hands of caring, compassionate people, eh?   

Yeah, right...

Absolutely shameful.

Colin Cater of Hedingham Fair was fulminating whenever I last saw him - Swanage last year - about having been stuck away in, I think, Church House.

Not sure how much was because of principle, becoming to a member of the Pagan Federation, and how much because of the lack of footfall....

Oh, and for me to get there a lot of stuff would have to go much better than expected between now and next week.... currently got an access tower and doing drastic things to fascia and guttering plus the 'Roo is making an odd noise. we'll see.

Thanks Lizzie, I missed your posting until now. I didn't realise I had so much support. I can only assume he intended me to see the email, thus insulting me, indirectly. Clever!

At the very least, Sally, it would have been 'the right thing' for John to have written to you, apologising for his arrogance and rudeness.

He is in charge of this Festival, and therefore, his behaviour, and attitude, should be beyond reproach towards everyone.

You most certainly don't just discard those who've been at Sidmouth for many years, because you have others now who will willingly pay the recent vast increases in pitch fees without questioning as to why they are having to pay so much more.

Or maybe you do, if your folk week is about money and nothing else. I'd always thought that Sidmouth carried with it a certain amount of loyalty to artists and those who make it what it is, the crafts people, the catering crews, the cool drinks sellers...

Sadly, it seems The Corporate Bastard Attitude has even crept into the world of the folk festival.

I've been reading a few sad reports about why people no longer are attending Cambridge this year too.

Very sad when Greed comes before Loyalty towards all those who make Folk Festivals/Weeks, what they always have been.

I think the harm that has been done over this horrid email is evident, particularly on your FB page where people have left many comments in your support.

You will be greatly missed, Sally, by many of the adults as well as the children, for whom I'm sure, 'The Lemonade Lady' stall in Blackmore Gardens, with its' cooling, fresh lemonade, has always been a very welcome and much loved part of Sidmouth Folk Week.

To all over festival organisers who have Sally on their books, treasure her.   :0)

Good thing we have special tickets for it then. We were well and truly "Spooked" last night by the Spooky Men- just as brilliant as ever! Chilling in front of the Ham right now and about to wander up towards the Radway before dinner. It's a hard life.....

Having a brilliant time. Trying to get out of the Bedford Hotel after Martyn Windham Read concert with my mobility aid rolling walker, I poked Eliza Carthy in the behind. How embarrassing. I supposed I should have roared a warning. "Watch out! Mad old woman with a people mower coming through."

Saw Sam Carter, Corncrow and the adorable Jim Causley earlier in week, same venue as above. Fronting for MWR were 2 young acts. Gavin Davenport and Ruth Notman. Wow! To all of the above. I was treated to some pleasantly stunning music. The enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge about traditional music of the young musos is heartening.

We have Spookyman concert today lunch time. YIPPEE! I am told that some were dining in the Black Horse yesterday evening during my Johnson Girls song with the Run Ashore (shanty sing pub crawl collecting for Sidmouth lifeboat). Glad I didn't know at the time, or I would have flubbed the song.

We have tickets to The Transports tomorrow night but I can't get happy about it. Folk week is almost over. It is far too short and far too long until the next one.
