The organisers of Sidmouth Folk Festival have announced the decision to cancel this year’s festival that was due to take place from 31st July to 7th August, 2020. The ongoing situation regarding Covid-19 has made it impossible to proceed with the event this year.

Following this announcement, applications to trade on the Esplanade during Sidmouth Folk Week will not now open as trading along the seafront cannot go ahead this year in line with cancellation of the event.

The confirmed opening date for trading applications in 2021 will appear here next year.
