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.

  • Stunning views - The views from the boat were stunning and the handy (and hilarious) commentary by the crew helped point out things of local interest. Loved it :)
  • Sunny days - The river cruise was a delight, such a fun and knowledgeable crew member giving the commentary, really is a must if visiting the area.
  • Excellent trip out - On recommendation from our hotel in Torquay we booked this and we were not disappointed. Steam train then ferry over to Dartmouth + a lovely river cruise for an hour included. We will visit again.
