Sidmouth Folk Week 2018 at the Bedford Hotel

by | Aug 3, 2018

Sidmouth Folk Week 2018 kicks off today (3rd August) and promises to be a fantastic year!

There has been a folk festival in Sidmouth in the first week of August every year since 1955, now attracts tens of thousands of visitors to over 700 diverse events with broad ‘something for everyone’ appeal.

With an ear to the past and an eye on the future, the festival features established stars and emerging talent; major concerts, lively roots parties; small intimate sessions; ceilidhs and folk dancing; storytelling; fun family entertainment and youth-centred sessions; hands-on workshops and spectacular dance displays; the best in South West crafts and the tastiest of local food and drink.

And here at the Bedford Hotel, we’re lucky enough to host a number of fantastic acts throughout the festival week.
