Mersea Island Festival 2021
With much regret the Trustees of the Mersea Island Festival have decided that there will be no Festival in 2021.
In the past months we have been considering all the different aspects of the Festival in the hope it can take place in August. It has now been agreed that there is too much uncertainty around whether we can deliver a safe week of fun, that wouldn’t potentially jeopardise our ability to put on future events.
While we know this will be disappointing news for a lot of people, we are looking towards the Festival returning in 2022 when hopefully life will be a lot more certain and we can return for a big party! There are currently no other plans for anything to happen during the week of Festival. Should this change, information will be sent out in the usual ways.
In the meantime, please stay safe.
Dates for 2022 are:
Week: Sunday 21st (eve) to Friday 26th August (pm)

MEDICAL AND CONSENT FORM
On confirmation of your booking we’ll send a medical and consent form for all those attending to complete. 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.
