The 70th Sidmouth Folk Festival Week

On 2nd August 2024 to 9th August 2024 Sidmouth Town

The first Sidmouth Folk Festival took place in 1955 and every August since then tens of thousands of visitors have flocked to this beautiful coastal town to sample some wonderfully diverse musical offerings. The festival now extends to a whole week with well known stars, new talent, major concerts and smaller gatherings all jostling for your attention.

The streets and music venues are full of atmosphere and the holidaymakers and locals mingle together throughout the town to create a fantastic summer event mood and character.

  • Grand day out! - I thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip, from the steam train to the ferry ride and of course, the boat trip. The designated seating and screens made me feel very safe. Well done!
  • Perfect day - We have done this several times over the years and is a fantastic day out. The steam train ride is great, but the cruise makes it. The commentary is very good and funny. Would definitely recommend this trip if in the area.
  • Great family fun - It was brilliant with our 2yo - she was so excited to see the trains and the view along the journey was beautiful. The commentary on the boat was well delivered. Would highly recommend!
