What do Highland party-starters Peatbog Faeries, Dartmoor fiddle-singer hearthrob Seth Lakeman, the mighty Oysterband in their 40th anniversary year and Welsh indie-folkers Rusty Shackle all have in common? There’ll be amongst the dance floor filling acts at this year’s Bulverton at Sidmouth FolkWeek.
The Bulverton is a buzzing hub of activity each night from 7pm through ‘til the early hours during FolkWeek. The vibe is upbeat, friendly and fun, with early doors sessions and Open Mics, from 7pm, adrenaline-charged bands taking to the stage for the main event and a high-energy Late Night Extra ceilidh drawing the night to a close at 1.15am. Late night revellers can stay on even longer for an acoustic chill out session in the funky Betsy’s Lounge. For a great night out with friends, The Bulverton offers a guaranteed Big Night Out to remember!
Hop on the festival shuttle bus at the Triangle in town up to Station Road (B3176) opposite the Campsite, and follow the colourful lights and flags up the hill past the famous FolkWeek Hollywood signage, or park up at the Festival car park at the top of the hill, next to the venue. A warm welcome awaits you at the top, with some very special Early Bird deals on cool Bulvertonian cocktails and ales, and scrumptious bites to eat at Polly Nostimo’s little Greek food truck, between 7 – 8.15pm. Polly Nostimo’s and Bar are open for revellers late into the night.
Soak up the vibrant décor, the cool Betsy’s Lounge hangout with its cracking views, and most importantly, make your way on the dancefloor for a good old-fashioned boogie!
