Families enjoy Sidmouth FolkWeek spectacular
IT wasn’t just the adults having all the fun this FolkWeek.
Youngsters of all ages sang, danced, played, crafted and juggled their way through a range of activities at the family arena in Blackmore Gardens.
Families relaxed with a picnic and watched the free entertainment, writes Charlie Lister.
The more energetic among them danced, played the outdoor games and even tried out circus skills.
Nancy Hawthorn, 12, from Shaftesbury, said: “We come to the festival every year and I love it here. We come down to practice on the stilts every day.”
