With the arrival of Spring, it’s time to get ready for the best summer holiday festival at Sidmouth FolkWeek from 4th – 11th August 2017! FolkWeek often describes itself as many festivals within one festival with ‘something for everyone’ appeal! To prove the point, some of the many people involved in the organisation of the event have selected some of their personal picks from the 2017 programme.

Geoff Lakeman, supporting Show of Hands on Sunday night at the Ham Marquee: It will be good to see Show of Hands in their 25th Anniversary Year and fresh from a triumphant return to the Royal Albert Hall. However, this gig should be a really special one as they are joined by Geoff Lakeman, scion of the legendary West Country folk family, who will be making a rare appearance in the spotlight. Geoff has a really good new solo album out and I am definitely looking forward to seeing what is sure to be an uplifting performance and a great evening.” Colin Trussell (Local Sponsorship Co-ordinator)
