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.
