ONLY 116 days to go to July 29th. :0)

AND....the excitment is starting to build! Down on the 'Sidmouth Silence' thread, people are starting to get anxious about tickets ALREADY! Always an excellent sign!

Personally...I'm excited, yet laid back...I never got my tickets from Steve Heap's Sidmouth until about June if I remember correctly and indeed a lot of tickets we bought on the day....as this depended so much on the weather. Not this year though, this year....all the concerts we're going to see will be in the dry!

Still.....good to see so many new threads starting about Sidmouth again!

Just think...soon Stevie Scarlett will be able to start ANOTHER thread up all about Sidmouth 2006!

Sidmouth could just end up in 'The Guiness Book of Records' as the Festival with the most threads, anywhere in the world!!!

Hmmm...Akubura Hats.....never seen one of those Dave...Oooh! Yes I have...just 'googled' them...they're Cowboy Hats!

Wow! I thought I was excited at the start of this thread...but if you're all going to turn up wearing Cowboy Hats, I may not even be able to last the 114 days left until Folk Week! I think Cowboy Hats should be compulsory! Not really into that 'compulsory' word at ALL, but if we're talking Cowboys...well!!!! ;0)

Where's Tony Blair? Is it on his Election Manifesto? Shame there isn't a Cowboy Party to vote for! ;0)

Drovers Lizzie not cowboys, it's an Australian hat and they don't have cowboys there in the occupational sense of the word. The proper thing to wear with an Akubra is elastic sided boots.

Look 'ere lads and lasses.

I made what I intended to be a passing joke to someone who I regard as a friend about something he and I (and his wife) know about. I didn't mean to start a whole sub-thread although perhaps a little clarification was needed as to the subject matter for those not in the know.

So can we agree that the joke has been made (or failed) and get back to the "Let's all have wonderfull Sidmouth" idea.

Lizzie asked above for Rolf Harris to be invited back to Sidmouth.

Sadly there is no Sidmouth arena for Rolf to appear in this year and the marquee on The Ham wouldn't be big enough for him.

However you can see Rolf and his band at the Stroud and Eastleigh Festivals over the weekend of August 6 and 7, also at the Towersey Festival (still organised very efficiently by Steve Heap and Mrs. Casey Music) at the end of August.

Anyone who enjoyed seeing Rolf at Sidmouth should go and see him at one of those Festivals this summer instead of Sidmouth.

You see...I knew you'd all have great fun on this thread! ;0) After all, that's what Sidmouth is about isn't it? Fun!

Right then...I'm putting my 'Serious Excitement Hat' on here.

What am I looking forward to at Sidmouth this year?

Well....my young lad has recently started to try and play the fiddle, Phil Beer and Seth Lakeman are two of his heroes, so we'll probably be going to some of the workshops being put on by the music students from Newcastle University. Sidmouth Town Council is donating money towards the children's workshops this year. So that will be fun down in Blackmore Gardens.

I love watching the Morris Dancing and there are loads of teams coming down this year, so that's another thing on my list. The concerts on The Ham...well they go without saying...loads of artists that I really love or have wanted to see for ages.

AND I'm just excited to see what is going to happen!

The craft stalls are going to be done by local people I understand, I'd got a bit fed up with the same old Arena shops/crafts year after year....so that'll be a nice change. I'm excited about what is going to happen in Knowle Park, (The Arena) whether people ARE going to take their music and dancing up there and just do 'whatever they want'.

It'll do the grass up there good to have a rest too! Did you know that every year, after all the Festival things have come down...the grass is all dead....has to be re-turfed. So nature can have a break this year.

I'm also excited to see the future plans for The Arena. I noticed on the other thread that people thought the Arena would never come back, but I don't think that at all! There's a VAST FLAT area in Knowle Park. Why not put a marquee on the flat bit instead? Then rain or shine its all OK!

My back used to ache so badly sitting on that hill. Don't get me wrong, I used to love the view etc., but it was so uncomfortable and if it rained you started to slide down it! It is tremendously steep.
Great for roly-polying though! ;0)

And I'm excited about the colours, the sounds, the way my town will change for a whole week. And hearing Sandra Kerr's Festival Choir and John Kirkpatrick's Festival Band.

AND taking those torches for Gordon Newton and Eddie Upton and watching them being carried to the sea and the flames being laid to rest with the blessing of Sidmouth 2006 upon them.

AND I'm looking forward to knowing how much Sidmouth 2005 is going to raise towards Sidmouth 2006!

Only 113 days to go......

Lizzie :0)

PS.....And HUGS! I'm excited about the Hugs too! ;0)

Never having done a whole week I don't know if I can survive the excitement. Perhaps I will be considered as a GUEST for the first year so I can slag off it and the festival goers.

Firstly, Lizzie started this thread and she has kept to the topic of it so why should anyone be worried by it.

Secondly, I don't think I'm the only one who is more turned on to Sidmouth than turned off it by Lizzie's silly sense of humour.

Thirdly, anyone who is turned off a festival because ther might be a couple of silly people going, probably wouldn't be going at all.

Fourthly, why is it that people who find Lizzie off-putting, spend so much time complaining about her? There are other threads and people can always start one of their own if they're that worried.

Fifthly, If bunny boiler's lack of humour and/or toleration become the hallmark of Sidmouth, that'll really put people off going.

Sixthly, I can't see where Lizzie has disparaged the previous festival. Maybe that's because I'd have to trawl through so many unnecessary complaints about her in order to find them.

Seventhly, lighten up, please, bunny!

Nice one Frank! I can't see that these threads should put anybody (except a total deadhead) off - as you rightly say, if they do, then the reader would not have gone anyway!

For the first time in years, I am really looking forward to the festival this year, because it isn't going to be about the big names, and having lots of big concerts. It will be far more for the guys like us, who want to enjoy ourselves singing and playing.

And Lizzie - playing and singing up in Knowle Park sounds brilliant! - but not going roly poly at the same time...

It's obvious that ther detractors of Sidmouth Festival, such as Bunny Boiler and Rolf Nut, only seem to think of the Festival as the shows which have been put on in the Arena.
Do they not go to the sessions, singarounds, workshops, ceilidhs, concerts in the Bedford, the Church, the Manor or other places?
I understood that Folk festivals were about DOING things which often one did not have the chance during the rest of the year. The big performers can often be seen at other venues diring the year.
If Rolf nut is so keen on seeing Rolf Harris why not see him at one of the other festivals AFTER having had a great time at Sidmouth?

I have been a regular visitor to Sidmouth for some 20 years but it is the international shows in the arena I enjoyed as well as the open air concerts featuring well-known artists like Rolf.

I have never sung in an amateur session and don't intend to start now.

To those who only go to Sidmouth to listen to themselves, good luck. I'm sure you'll enjoy the sound of your own voices.

The many thousands who went to Sidmouth for the arena concerts won't disturb you. We won't be in Sidmouth this year because there is sadly nothing of interest to us.

None of us are kidding ourselves that it will be the same. Nor has Lizzie ever said that the loss of the arena is a good thing, but there's nothing we can do about it, so the only thing we CAN do is go, be positive and enjoy ourselves. Anyone who does anything with the intention of having fun will almost certainly do so. Anyone who does anything with a negative attitude and expecting to be disappointed almost certainly will be.

Er....what ancient TV programmes?

Love Lynne

Still looking forward to my first visit to Sidmouth, well done liz. Good attempt starting another positive thread to lose all the negative comments of the previous thread.

I knew from the thread title that this was one of yours. So presumably did Boring boring guest but still he felt he had to read it and tell you he doesnt like reading your posts. Strange person.

I have met quite a few of the positive contributors now at Miskin and at MBSLynne's session and am looking forward to meeting more in the summer.
