That same week there will also be several evening concerts forming entertainment for the hotel guests, but also open to the public. On Tuesday, January 16, the Sidmouth Folk Choir will perform from 8pm to 9pm. On Wednesday, January 17, there will be a New Year concert with soprano Val Howels accompanied by John MacGregor in aid of Sidmouth Town Band and on Thursday, January 18, the Sidmouth Strummers ukulele band will perform.
The regular Sunday afternoon concerts, with bucket collections in aid of the refurbishment of the chandeliers, continue on January 28 with a group of recorder players, and on February 11, Joyce Clarke is giving a piano recital.
The Old Bull and Bush company will return on February 18 for a medley of entertainment and on February 25 the organisers hope to host the young musicians of Bramdean School.
