Why not take in some great local events in Sidmouth and South Devon?

Here are some of the highlights of events happening locally to help you plan your trip... 

For many, a holiday to Sidmouth is their chance to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Stepping out of their routine, they'll love the relaxed, slower pace of life that South Devon offers and return from their break feeling rejuvenated. However, for some of our guests, Sidmouth's jam-packed calendar of events means that they can have a full itinerary of fun things to see and do.

Please check individual event websites for up to date opening details and information as all events are subject to change and cancellation, and that you are comfortable with their COVID-19 procedures before visiting. Pre-booking is often now essential.
