Focused in and around the town of Sidmouth in Devon with much action on the sea front, there's a mass of entertainment going on for the whole week.
Sidmouth Folk Week has been celebrating traditional music, dance and craft from the British Isles and further afield. They now have second- and third-generation festival-goers who come every year - and even some of the headline performers came to Sidmouth as children!
On top of the live music you'll find plenty of other things to engage you including a ceilidh, a variety of workshops, dance displays, a procession, dance bands & callers - just great fun and games to be had at this one with the festival happening over 8 days and at several venues.
Sidmouth FolkWeek holds its 60th anniversary festival from 1st-8th August 2014 and plans are already well underway for making it a bumper birthday celebration. Some exciting extra special events are in the offing to mark the Diamond Jubilee year as well as significant plans for the future.
