Best ever value season tickets are now on sale for Sidmouth FolkWeek. Made unique by its sensational seaside setting, the annual celebration of music, arts and dance comes to town from 3rd – 10th August 2012.

Times being tight, the festival organisers want to help make the festival affordable for all by offering Early Bird tickets at 2011 prices and abolishing the 4% booking fee, guaranteeing sunshine-filled days and star-filled nights – whatever the weather!

Festival Director, John Braithwaite says: “We see our job as giving our loyal customers a wonderful festival experience at best possible prices. So, lower prices and an even better line-up than last year; that's our answer to the economic gloom. A ray of sunshine from lovely Devon!”

Already shaping up to be the essential 2012 music event, Festival Artistic Director, Alan Bearman is back at the helm, assembling an already stellar cast of artists!

Early line-up announcements range from Devon’s local hero Seth Lakeman to folk favourites June Tabor & Oysterband to show-stopping international dance spectaculars from Zimbabwe’s high-stepping Black Umfolosi. All tastes are catered for.
