We hope to see some great outfits at the Heroes & Villains fancy dress party on the last night of each camp (Thursday/ Sunday). You don’t have to be a ‘super’ hero or villain. It could just be someone you admire.
And bring something for the BLUE colour party on another night of the Festival.
MEDICAL AND CONSENT FORM
On confirmation of your booking we’ll send you a medical and consent form.
We require a completed form for all those attending the Festival. Please provide us with as much information as possible, continuing on a separate sheet if required. Completed forms should be returned by the 26th July.
Where an individual is attending the Festival with support, it is expected that assistance with taking medication will be given by their supporter or group leader. While some of our volunteers are qualified to provide First Aid treatment, none of them are able to provide medical advice and participants will be referred to the local walk-in centre if this is required.
Please note that the volunteer staff team cannot supply individual, one to one personal care e.g. toileting, showering or skin cream applications.
There is a limited number of places for day visitors on the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday of the Festival. The cost is £30.00 per person per day. This includes all activities on-site and the evening entertainment. Activities start at 10am. If you would like meals there is an additional cost of £7 per person.
FUNDING FOR SUPPORTER/CARER PLACES
Funding has previously been available through the Short Breaks for Disabled Children programme to support the cost of the fee for the supporter/carer of a child or young person with a disability attending the Mersea Island Festival as a camper or a day visitor. It is not known if funding will be available for the 2019 Festival.
Eligible children and young people were aged from 8 to 18 at the time of the Festival and lived within the administrative boundary of Essex County Council. (Unfortunately this does not include Southend or Thurrock).
To receive details as soon as we have news of any funding in 2019, contact the centre on 01206 383226 or email us
