image for Festival item typeWaldegraves Holiday Park 70th Birthday Celebration

Festival, Sat 30 Jun 2018, free entry




Waldegraves Farm, on Mersea Island, has come a long way since the days when it used to be mixed stock rearing and arable farm. Now it is the home of Waldegraves Family Holiday Park, which is this year marking 70 years of providing of top class family holidays and relaxing breaks on the Essex coast.

David Lord, park owner, said the secret to success was simple, it’s all about the personal touch it can provide and the fact that guests return year after year across generations. “Those who first came as children with their parents are now coming back and bringing their own children with them. We see a lot of familiar faces and we know a lot of our guests personally.”

The holiday park will mark the anniversary with an open-to-all mini-festival over the weekend of June 29th & 30th. There will be music, rides, games, plenty of food and drink stalls showcasing the local produce from businesses on the island and when night falls the famous Waldegraves fireworks take to the skies.
