May well pay a visit, went to the solar event they had a month or two back. On a nice site, just hope they sign post it a little better.

The sign on the main road in from Honiton was behind a bush, drove past it into Sidmouth.
No signs in Sidmouth to it.
The sign off of the road up to NLO was single sided and I approached from the side without the writing so drove past.

So any one from the organisers: Please put up visible signs!!

You'll be amazed how they help people find the place/event.

Have to be honest I went to the solar event so that I could find the place for the Astro Fair.

Worked on the basis that the solar day was earlier in the year and so less busy on the roads and in Sidmouth. The Astro Fair is Aug 8 - middle of the holiday season so will be busy.

Having drove into, round, out, back in then out of Sidmouth I eventually found the place, but I was close to giving up.
