where to begin?
Volunteer singing, (poetry & Story in their garden). Mid-day at least.
Swan, inside, outside and behind sessions mid-day and probably evening.
Anchor downstairs mid-day session.
Radway English session (ish)
Bedford - session (occ song) and maybe a second session mid-day.
Cricket Club mid-day session.
and who knows what evening sessions take place but I would expect all of the above. I will be in the Blackmore Gardens or the Bulverton marquee, dancing.
Yatch Club (or wherever it is now) has a folk club - think singaround - in the evenings.
There are things in the Rugby club (collecting box), various, but Sunday 8pm is a singaround. Saturday - Irish & Scottish session. eg.
If you see me wandering around - say hello.

there are morning and evening sessions in the York and Faulkner, 10:30 and 19:30.

The 15:30 themed singarounds are usually interesting - this year at the rugby club.

There are ballad sessions (real ballads) in the conservatory at Woodlands 17:00. I promise I will not sing Tam Lin again.

All - or most - of the fringe events are given on page 50 of the programme.
And please don't forget to put some money in the collecting tin - the collections in the fringe sessions and on the streets are an important part of the festival income.
Oh, and tickets are available for the non-fringe events ..... :-)

You are wasting your time Derek thinking that the majority of contributors to these threads will actually make any significant financial input into this or any other festival.

Personally I have always been happy to pay my way and always offered practical support.

I know I am in the minority but can only blame that on a working class background where we expected nothing for nothing.

Well, Guest, Guest, my own experience of the named people who have previously contributed to this thread is that they have contributed financially to the festival too. And we'll be putting a collecting tin round in the Royal York singarounds again this year as in previous years.

You're welcome to come and join us and put a coin or two in the tin too. (As the saying goes, notes are quieter, and don't disturb the singers.....)

Guest Guest .... as Kitty said! The collecting tins are passed around in the Volunteer every day, and as far as I have ever noticed everybody usually makes a donation. The Middle Bar singers usually go all out as far as I am aware, and consistently make a fair bit of money for the Festival.

As far as the original guest's request about Sessions, please note that, despite what Mr Red has said, the lunchtime events at the Volunteer are NOT sessions/singarounds. Singers are invited to take the floor by the co-hosts of the day (normally George Frampton and AN Other),and quite often include festival guests etc, and music is provided by the designated "pit band" of the day.Doesn't mean to say that you don't get the chance to raise the rafters in chorus singing every now and then though! The evening events at the Volunteer (assuming that things are proceeding as they were two years ago (I haven't been able to go for that long, boo hiss)are of a more participative mixed song and tunes nature.Looking forward to getting back to the Volly for at least one session next week on the Friday. Hope you find what you are looking for guest!

Fri 12pm is the earliest I can get there, and probably got straight to the Anchor Gardens. Tickets & B&B must wait for a gap in my programme.

FWIW I never implied the Volunteer was a session, singing was stated, the format unspecified. I always tell people (for any pub "event") that the format depends on who is there and you have to try several to find the scenario that suits. Sidmouth affords a rich choice. "Invited Floor Spots" would be a better description. It didn't light my fire whenever I popped in, despite my singing pedigree. The Rugby Club (Sun 8pm) event run by Dave Hunt might be more to your liking. I have experience his organising and it is very eclectic and inclusive.

Thanks Mr Red! ...Sunday 8pm Rugby Club...   It's billed as a 'Music and Song Session', and that's exactly what you'll get! I really like a varied and lively mix of stuff, so that there is always a chance for ANYBODY to have a go,...experienced or newcomers. I always try to maintain a stress free, welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, we all had to start somewhere, and this could be YOUR opportunity. Or you may be a virtuoso musician...great, come and share your expertise with us! It will be FUN!

Brings back happy memories of the 80s/90s - but also of not so good memories such as heavy rain and strong winds resulting in a flooded campsite, almost total lack of showers, stench of chemical loos, folks shouting into the early hours, and trying to sleep on a just ploughed up muddy field.

I seem to remember that the campsite was so far out from town too.

Would love to do it all over again - but Sidmouth is now way out of my financial means. They don't want pensioners there - do they even have concessionary tickets? - its very much a young person's festival - as is made quite clear in the activities programmed.

Sidmouth is full of pensioners, indeed it's hard to tell the folkies from the locals.
Don't worry about a ticket, just go, but use one of the permanent campsites.

A "young persons festival"?! The average age when I last went a couple of years ago was easily 60+.

Perhaps the organisers realise that if they don't make a serious effort to attract younger people the festival will cease to exist within the next 20 years.

But I still can't afford to go: train fare (outrageous), b&b inflated prices just for the week, Festival season ticket plus tickets for extra events - eye-watering, food & beer money, incidentals, etc. Way beyond my means.

Huh - friend of mine get free tickets for taking workshops but they don't share them with me and I haven't reached the dizzy heights of taking a workshop myself. I do clogging and step dancing - and those from Newcastle always get those workshops anyway.

We've just got back from Sidmouth and both said the same thing, its slowly its losing its vitality. The event is changing, too many traders on the sea front, not enough dancers or performers, too many mini pa's with X Factor wannabes behind them, sessions with no umph, needs a kick up the arse.

If most of the punters are over 60, that doesn't necessarily mean that the festival will die out. In 20 years, lots more people will be over 60 and may replace the present festival-goers.

Well, I'm hoping to be proper retired enough to take the week down there next year or the year after. I went down for the opening weekend a couple of times not long ago. I agree. Get rid of traders on the prom and PAs in the street, that'll give the dancers some space and those of us who want to sit in sessions can do so in every pub!

What a lot of negativity about! I had a wonderful week as ever! Many thanks again to the organisers. No shortage of young folk about, among buskers, sessioneers and paid performers. Lots of stuff for families and children too.
It would be good to get the Esplanade back for more spontaneous and/or arranged dancing and music, but hopefully (maybe?) some of the income from hiring out the spaces to the traders goes back into funding the festival?? Can someone confirm or refute that?

East Devon District Council (EDDC) hire out the spaces on the Esplanade to traders. EDDC does not give direct financial support to the festival.

So there you have it, direct from the 'horse's mouth' - EDDC are on the make from the festival, while at the same time, apparently without realising it, stiffling the very reason genuine festival goers want to go there in the first place.

Something drastic needs doing here before the festival (& EDDC) completely loses its integrity!

To clarify ... Sidmouth Town Council gives generous financial support to the festival. And EDDC gives support in kind, and the festival obviously involves increased street cleaning, there are licensing issues etc... (all EDDC responsibility).
EDDC's car park revenue is probably up as well... :-)

no formal involvement? all those photographs for EDS magazine and MC in the Ham Marquee. (!-)

But if you were a dancer you would have sore feet doing all the ceilidhs, or the Contra, or the Troyls from Kernow, Breton Montardes/Andros & Hantadros. Balkan Circles, and Irish Set dances. And 2 "free" ceilidhs in the Anchor Gardens per day.
If you were fans of Belshazzar's Feast, Chris Wood & Andy Cutting and a load of concerts I didn't get to (you could be on concerted overload). Talks, edifying lectures on Frank Kidson (eg),
If you were a session musician you would be spoilt for "free" choice in the Bedford, Swan, Anchor, Radway and a some official sessions I never got to.
Singers had the Volunteer, Anchor and other venues I didn't have time for.

But there is a tradition that says nostalgia is not what it was
but it will be one day and it is nice to know it is alive and well amongst the non-attendees.

As I always say "change is the only thing certain in life" and to those who point to death I say "as changes go? ..............".

The changes at festivals like Sidders that I don't like are compensated for by the yoof that like it. At my age there is a wonderful vicarious pleasure in seeing others enjoy themsleves, particularly yoof finding what I found long ago - that participation has a value way above consumption.

I am weary, tired and lost 2 weeks of hobbies, and I am wonderfully rewarded for all of that.

Thankyou Sidmouth organisers.

AGREED Mr Red! What a fantastic week! I have been going to Sidmouth since 1989 and have seen many changes. I couldn't fit in a quarter of the events/free sings and sessions that I would have liked.

Loads of young musicians and exciting singers and dancers along with spaces for the "older" traddies (like myself in part!).

Sidmouth remains the kind of experience where everyone can have a completely different festival - as expensive or inexpensive as suits. See Mr Red's comments for a meer glimpse of the range of pursuits, I won't list again but you get the picture.

It is some time since I returned to Mudcat and it is a shame to see that there are still so many pointless, negative musings across the threads. I'd love to see people offering ideas and suggestions for festivals/events they liked better that we all might try out instead of purely doing down other people's experiences.

The reason there are no fringe players anymore is the festival/Sidmouth is just too exspensive too attend. Even taking out the ticket price I know as a local every bussiness put's a little premium on everything over that week. Compare this to Dartmoor festival where a pint costs £2.50 and a burger is a couple quid.
I personally think its on way too long as well and due to this the festival just kind of fizzles out midweek. On the first weekend we sat in sessions till 2am but by Wedenesday sessions were packing up at 9.30pm. I really think a 4 day long weekend would be the way to go as the comments on here are correct the crowd is generally 50 plus and a week is too long. This would also keep that energy level up which is lacking. I know a few people on here will say "oh I had a good time all week" but it definately dies mid week. I even spotted the organiser playing putting on the Thursday so he had lost interest as well.

We only did monday to thursday, so may have missed the best ie the weekend, but compared to previous years, banjo's, mandolins, melodians all well down, however, Ukeleles well up and now seems to be the instrument of choice for the average festival goer.

I think the earlier comments of the festival running out of steam around mid week is a fair observation IMHO

We had a very nice local festival - morris, a few pubs, nearby camping, that gradually turned into a giant boot fair with PA'd music from the pubs with cover bands.
Sidmouth looked as though it was going that way with all the tat on the prom.
