Mersea Island Festival 2020

Plans are underway for next year’s Festival, when we’ll be celebrating the 40th year that the inclusive camps that make up the Mersea Island Festival have taken place.

We’ll be adding information here about the Festival as it becomes available. Previous attenders will already be on our mailing list. To get your name added please get in touch via our Contact page.

As a guide to prices, here are the details for 2019:

WEEK camp: Sunday (evening) to Friday (pm)
Adult £262 / Under 18 £235

WEEKEND camp: Friday (evening) to Monday (pm)
Adult £158 / Under 18 £141


On confirmation of your booking we’ll send you a suggested kit list.


We have a fancy dress party on the last night of each camp (Thursday/ Sunday)  and a colour party on another night. Details available when booking confirmed.

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.

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 are places for day visitors on the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday of the Festival. The cost in 2019 was £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 (2019).
