Finally, after many years in the making, TPLfilms and Sidmouth Folk Week’s Festival Committee are proud to present this journey through time exploring Sidmouth Folk Festival's rich and fascinating history.

The Producers used previously unseen film and photographs donated through archive collections or found in rubbish skips, sheds and attics after decades of neglect to tell the story of 'Europe's longest running folk festival'. It features interviews, performances and memories from festivals gone by and helps us to understand how Sidmouth Folk Week became the highpoint in the English Folk calendar.

Ralph McTell (Streets of London), Steve Knightley (Show of Hands), India Electric Company, Lori Campbell, Edgelarks, The Oysterband and many more all feature to tell Sidmouth’s story and help us experience a movie event that’s truly unique.

Tickets Adult £8, Under 16's £7 + additional lunch £14 & £13 respectively.
