Unfortunately the Festival is not able to provide free or discounted places for supporters. As an inclusive event, for those with and without a disability, the price is the same for all and everyone can get involved in the Festival programme.

Our theme for 2024 is ‘Myths & Legends’. Who will you be at the fancy dress party on the last night of each camp. Here’s some ideas…

King Arthur and Knights of the Round Table; George and the Dragon; Dick Whittington; Robin Hood; the Loch Ness monster ; Hercules; Fairies; Witches; Gnomes; Pixies; Dragons; Unicorns; Mermaids; Viking/Norse mythology e.g. Thor, Odin, Loki; Egyptian, Roman and Greek Gods.

And on the Tuesday and Friday nights it’s our colour party. This year it’s ‘GREEN’.

On confirmation of your booking we’ll send you a kit list. You can also download it here: MIF24 Kit List

The Festival makes sure that there are qualified first aiders on site to help anyone who might need some urgent treatment after an injury. For any medical assistance beyond that we can provide details of the nearest pharmacist, medical practice or hospital.

Please note that the volunteer staff team cannot supply individual, one to one personal care e.g. toileting, showering or skin cream applications. We also cannot guarantee support for individuals with the taking of medication. Where someone is attending with support, it is expected that assistance with taking medication will be given by that person.
