A celebration of all things folk held in the beautiful seaside setting of Sidmouth on the Devon coastline. Proudly championing traditional music, dance and song since 1955, The Sidmouth Folk Festival continues to build on its many years of success in creating an inclusive music community that embraces variety – celebrating tradition in all its many forms, including the rich diversity of folk arts in the UK, from the grassroots to the cutting edge. For more information on this festival, please see the Sidmouth Folk Festival website.

Why volunteer with the Wicked Team at Sidmouth


I had no idea of just how amazing Sidmouth was!! So many things to see and places to see them in. It was my first-time volunteering and going to Sidmouth but I will definitely be back


I have been coming to Sidmouth Folk Week for over 20 years now and it is like a second home being with so many friends all enjoying this wonderful festival. The only place I know where you can be Morris dancing in the sea one day and singing a sea shanty the next.


Volunteering at Sidmouth was such a wonderful experience. There were so many things to do and see (the vast majority of which was free with my volunteer pass) I can’t wait to set up my tent and do it all again.
