Ham Events

‘The Ham’ is a long narrow parcel of land (judged to be ham shaped, hence one of the possible reasons for its name) which is situated at the eastern end of Sidmouth, by the mouth of the river Sid.

Sidmouth Town Council’s trusteeship starts at the west just behind the brick paved roof of SWW’s tank and northwards to a narrow point at the end of Riverside. The area of trusteeship includes the Fishermen’s Sheds, children’s play area and the former boating lake/macerator.

The area is provided for public and community use and recreation.

The following events are scheduled to take place on the Ham in 2024 (scheduled events may be subject to cancellation):
