Yes, well said and very well put, Henry P!
And where were you in 2005, Martin Hughes? The festival was, of unavoidable necessity, much reduced in size from the previous (50th) year, but we are indebted to those who had the faith AND took considerable personal financial risk to ensure that there WOULD be a festival that year. It has gone from strength to strength ever since.
As for the fringe, it has gained official recognition, in that at least some of the fringe events have featured in the full working programme for the last few years. The Middle Bar Singers regularly achieve the highest total of any venue for can collections over Folk Week, as well as raising amazing sums for the Sidmouth Lifeboat on their shanty night on the Tuesday evening session in the Anchor, and on the "run ashore".

As a ticket holder, may I point out that I do a lot of fringe stuff. Mostly participatory.
Would I go to a festival that only had concerts? ie entertainment - you know the sort of thing that can be experienced on TV, DVD, radio & CD.
Definitely not. If there were ceilidhs maybe. But to make it worthwhile there has to be sessions. And sessions are not that easy to organise, they have a life of their own, they are - er - um - don't prompt me - er - um - Folk

And then there are the people to commune with - you know Folk Folk. Talented, a lot of 'em.

AND the sweet shop sells troach - normally only found in the Black Country owr kid. Folk is not just music, don't ya know.

How easily people forget!

The fringe element of the festival (music sessions, song sessions, dance performers) kept the momentum going when the festival took a year off. It may be unofficial but it's still part of Sidmouth Folk Week.

Guest Realist, I don't think its fair to refer to visitors who don't buy tickets as " Parasites", not all of them are necessarily obsessive Folkies who want Wall to wall Folk activities, some of them may have only limited time to spend here, or be of limited means, many I know come principally for the social aspect of meeting up with old friends for a once a year re-union. And there are many supporters who, like myself live in the area, and for whom Folkweek is not a holiday but a working week, making it uneconomical to buy a season ticket that we cant make adequate use of, but still like become involved in the festival to the best of our abilities.
There are a few however who seem to want to make a virtue out of not contributing financially,who turn up year on year, spend the entire week in one (Free) venue and boast of never having paid for anything, all this despite the amazing variety of entertainment on offer.
Festivals cost money to put on, Artists, Organisers, and the like all have bills to pay and are entitled to their wages, and contrary to what you might think, the biggest costs are things like the Hire of venues,and supply of the necessary ancillary services to ensure that visitors have an enjoyable time, very little goes on "Free" or Cut price tickets for people, and many performers are willing to appear for reduced fees, some having even having performed free of charge.
However it should be obvious to all, that those who buy tickets DO subsidise those who do not, and that if there was no Festival due to lack of money, there would be No free fringe to enjoy, So please if you do come without a ticket, PUT SOMETHING IN THE COLLECTING TINS !!!

Henry Piper. Old Father Christmas, Sidmouth Traditional Mummers.

I agree that if there was NOT a festival ,there would not be a fringe , but the fringe gives more opportunity for ALL performers to perform - There are a LOT of folkies who want do more for a week than watch only other performers .
And as HAS been mentioned above , the town (Pubs , Cafes , B&B's etc) do make a lot of money from Folk Week .

Why are the people who keep the fringe sessions going in the pubs, called parasites? Surely they contribute to keeping the pubs and restaurants going. The town of Sidmouth during the festival is heaving, and local businesses must be glad of it. I'm not sure I like being called a parasite; it's a bit rude, actually. The music and song sessions are really worth going to, and are a wonderful source of traditional folk songs, music and entertainment. Not everyone wants to buy tickets to see concerts or even camp.

So that's three or is it four?

Asking the question seems to have touched a nerve with some, surprisingly those who do contribute financially.

The silent majority will just carry on being parasites.

Yes Tattie, its worth making the point that The Sidmouth Lifeboat is an Independent, and not Funded by R.N.L.I, although of course they do co-operate with them, They Therefore could use any donations visitors can spare.
Its also worth mentioning that a large percentage of the funds that go to keep the festival running come from the generous donations of visitors, and sponsors, as well as ticket sales.

Henry (aka Pip) - Maybe next year I will re-unite you (in the sense of let you visit) your mandolin that you left with Jacqui, which had the front smashed in by moving man, beautifully repaired to a sound like a stripper behind gauze by a man from up north whose name I forget, then I put strings on it that were too much, and when it fell off a table at a folk club it split, then I let a wanker called Andy Perkins fix it and it has never sounded the same since - but it still plays and after the money I've spent on it I reckon it's mine...

Is there any advance info on The Fringe ?

Yup - been to the barber's to get summer plumage.

Perhaps I don't understand what some folks think of as proper dancing. Sounds a bit snobbish to me. I see free(ish) ceilidhs in the Anchor twice a day, including Blowzabella one afternoon. Irish Set dances, Euro Bal, contra (yes but is that proper dancing?) not to mention myriad workshops on same. Then there are all those erudite thingies on something called Folk whatever that is. Free(ish) sessions and singarounds. And all those people (are they folk?) to meet & greet. And there is always the option to steward, for those who like talking to people.

So - tell me, if I went to Ibiza or Costa del English - how much would it cost me? And how much in self esteem? Having never been on a package holiday. I will - one day - do Dubrovnic or Barcelona, for personal reasons, but while I have feet that will rant, or hornpipe - it can wait.

True the ceilidh on Friday that never happens is not in the programme (;-) - now tell again - if that is not Folk what is? Spontaneous fun, ad hoc partisan musicians, and so free anyone can af-ford it.

"And unlike in the 1970s/80s now-a-days a 'season ticket' only gets you into basic events. Concerts, LNE, and special events, etc., still have to forked out for at the astronomical rates of £25 per event!!!!!"

Jim Martin - CJB has misinterpreted the ticket structure, as has "Guest" 7 July 12.15.

An "All in One" ticket gives admission to all events, including evening Ham Marquee concerts.
A "Week" ticket gives admission to all events, except evening Ham Marquee concerts ("Week" ticket holders can buy individual Ham evening tickets at a discount).
There is also a Weekend ticket (same conditions as Week).
And a Bulverton in One ticket which gives admission to all Bulverton events, camping, bus ticket and some workshop passes).
There is also a family ticket offer.

If you have All in One or Week tickets, there are no supplements for workshops, LNE etc.

The reason for this variety is that it tries to cater for people with different interests.

Some people can't or won't buy "season" tickets, so individual event tickets are available - some in advance. And the campsite is available to non-season ticket holders (unlike the 1970s/80s). But of course without "organisation" - marquees, guests, staff who work all year round, and volunteers who work during the week - there would be no festival and therefore the fringe might not exist.

well okay. you have to spend some money on getting there. and if you have to camp cos you live a long way away - well theres that you have to pay for.
but apart from a concert i paid ten quid to see Wizz Jones - most of the other concerts have been a bit rubbish. very stuffy rooms - i've walked out of a couple. long queues to get in the tent.

the joy of the place is the music and buskers and dancers on the sea front. the sessions. the fringe concerts that are often free. the sheer beauty of your surroundings and of course seeing old friends.

the vegetarian food is awful - bloody beetroot burgers. i was farting like a buffalo for three days. they should flog a concession to macdonalds or greggs. take a flask and sandwiches.

We'll be there from Friday afternoon or evening through to the Saturday after it finishes - except for a quick dash home on Tuesday to water the garden and pick rampant vegetables. We aren't buying season tickets because we don't take advantage of the concerts enough to make it worthwhile. Realistically, we spend at least roughly 80% of our time in the Middle Bar or just wandering around the stalls and the streets and bumping into folk. That's what we like to do most. We MAY buy tickets for the Spookies but not much else.

As Freda Underhill said, she'll be camping with us - at Kingsdown Tail Caravan Park. Looking forward to it!
