Sidmouth Folk Week
Folk Week - August 4th to 11th 2017
'63rd' Sidmouth Folk Week
Sidmouth Folk Week is a unique week-long seaside celebration of music, dance and song taking place in the first week of August each year - a must in every festival goer's annual diary. The town's streets and venues come alive with festive atmosphere as holidaymakers and festival goers join together in a music-based holiday to remember.
Information and advanced tickets are available from the information Centre
Attracting tens of thousands of visitors to over 700 diverse events, there is a promise of 'something for everyone' - from top name concerts to family entertainment and colourful dance displays.
Blackmore Gardens is at the heart of Childrens events, firing the imagination with music workshops, creative crafts, circus skills, puppetry, street theatre, singing, story telling and games.
All this is followed by a spectacular finale, with the traditional Torchlight Procession (10pm) making its way down the Esplanade from Peak Hill, and a Firework Display (10.50pm) brings the week to a close.
