The Sidmouth Folk Festival celebrates 65 years in 2019, recognised as a huge cultural highlight in the South West region, marked by its prestigious Blue Plaque status – awarded as part of BBC Music Day – and acknowledged as a national treasure by festival goers from across the country and wider world.

Makeney Morris will be dancing throughout the festival at various locations. If you’re in the area please do come and check out our dancing!

“Britain’s oldest festival has itself become the stuff of folklore, yet it continues to influence musical trends and capture the hearts of all who visit. Sidmouth FolkWeek has undergone many transformations …. and while it represents many things to many people, the unique, varied and vibrant atmosphere is one that undeniably sets it apart.”
