Sea Fest is a splash hit!
19:30 25 April 2014
A SUCCESFUL celebration of Sidmouth’s coastal location and heritage on Monday – the town’s first Sea Fest - attracted more than 1,000 people.
Organisers of the fun at the Ham now hope to make it an annual event.
Matt booth said: “It was a fantastic day and couldn’t have gone any better.
“I’m relieved, delighted, excited and optimistic – looking forward to building on it.”
A fish kitchen proved a smash-hit along with demonstrations from a raft of local organisations and an exhibition in the Drill Hall about the town’s fishing history.
Eighteen people took part in an Easter ‘fish hunt’ involving town businesses, 90 people enjoyed the ‘fish stocks’, 120 faces were painted and more than 200 fish baps were dished out.
