Sidmouth ceilidhs are renowned for fun, energy and fantastic bands

You can fill your dance card with daily ceilidhs and dances at the welcoming Blackmore Evening Ceilidhs as well as the after-hours knees-ups at the Bulverton Late Night Extras, at the Anchor Gardens, and more.

This year's line-up of leading ceilidh bands from around the country includes something for everyone, with the well-seasoned virtuosity of The Committee Band, Token Women, Kirkophany and Whapweasel alongside the youthful energy of Tautus Roks, Threepenny Bit and Out Of Hand, and the adventurous musical non-conformism of Banter, Blackbeard's Tea Party and The Gloworms

Callers include: Gordon Potts, Nick Walden, Jo Freya, Barry Goodman, Fee Lock, Martyn Harvey, Hannah Moore and Michael Catovsky.
