There’s really no better place to spend a day than in Sidmouth during the first week of August! Everyone is welcome in the popular East Devon seaside town as residents, holidaymakers and festival goers join together to make Sidmouth FolkWeek the friendliest and best music-based holiday of the summer.
A Sidmouth FolkWeek Day Ticket provides the ideal way to experience the unique atmosphere of this internationally-renowned festival. It gives you entry into that day’s lunchtime and afternoon concerts at the magnificent Ham Marquee – where you can enjoy world-class folk performers like Steve Tilston & Jez Lowe, Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys, Emily Askew Band, Stick In The Wheel, Alistair Anderson & Northlands, John Doyle, Martin Carthy & John Kirkpatrick and Faustus.
The Day Ticket also gives priority admission to evening concerts at venues around the town including the Bedford Hotel and the Cellar Bar at Kennaway House, and enables you to purchase Ham Marquee evening concert tickets at a discounted price. For the more energetic, there are folk dances and ceilidhs to suit dancers of all ages.
For those wanting to improve their skills or to try something new, Day Ticket holders can attend a festival workshop. There’s over 250 to choose from, covering all aspects of folk music, dance and song with many aimed at beginners. There are also talks, outdoor and indoor dances, demonstrations and things to make and do for all ages.
Award-winning catering stalls and our fast-and-friendly festival bars are always on hand to provide food and refreshment while you dance away the day, and there’s plenty to occupy the younger family members at the Children’s Festival in Blackmore Gardens. Enjoy the day at your own pace as you explore the craft market, meet friends, join-in a traditional music or singing session and watch the daily seafront dance displays.
You can experience more in one day at Sidmouth than you can in a weekend at most other festivals! With workshops starting from 9:30 in the morning, and the music and dancing continuing into the small hours at the Bulverton, a FolkWeek Day Ticket really does represent exceptional value for money.
Sidmouth’s famous Esplanade and beach and its spectacular red cliffs provide FolkWeek with a festival location unlike any other. A Sidmouth FolkWeek Day Ticket is a passport to a perfect day. Who are you going to spend yours with?
