A week-long celebration of music, dance and song in a stunning seaside location in East Devon.

This event is a national treasure: a major cultural institution held every year in the first week of August, since 1955, attracting tens of thousands of visitors.

It provides a platform for recognised stars and emerging talent: expect major concerts, upbeat roots parties, intimate sessions, ceilidhs, folk dancing, storytelling events, fun family entertainment, youth-centred sessions, hands-on workshops and spectacular dance displays.

It really is the best of the South West, with regional crafts and the tastiest of local food and drink.
