Event Now Past

Sidmouth Folk Festival Week

On 30th July 2021 to 6th August 2021 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.

  • Excellent! - A wonderful experience and not to be missed, steam train and paddle steamer through glorious scenery.
  • Enjoyable - The cruise was what took the cake for me. Breathtaking views, historical sites and a fantastic guide made it all the more entertaining to sit back and take in the lovely sights! Would highly recommend! :)
  • Great fun - Cost of ticket sooooo worth it! Very safe on the train. Not over crowded and screens between seats. Dartmouth is a hidden gem which we thoroughly enjoyed. We took a boat trip too! Great day.
