There has been a folk festival in the coastal town of Sidmouth in South West England in the first week of August every year since 1955, attracting tens of thousands of visitors to over 700 diverse events. (Wikipedia)
Makeney Morris were invited to the festival in August 2015 to run the children’s workshops for morris dancing, in the Cotswold traditions of course!
We danced every day for the week, at the children’s workshops, on the seafront, in Sidmouth town centre, if there’s a space we danced in it!
We thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to go back again. If you are thinking of going to the festival, do, you will not regret it.
