It will not have escaped your attention that Covid-19 is having a major effect on everything at the moment.
The Welcome Inn, like all other pubs, is currently closed and this is being reviewed monthly. With self-isolation and social distancing in place, SkegMiniFest cannot happen right now.
But, keeping a positive outlook and hoping for the best, we are still saying that booking is still open and SkegMiniFest 2020 will happen as planned this July. There are still 4 months to go and things can change between now and then.
Preparing for the worst, we may find that it remains impossible to run the event and ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff.
If the event is cancelled, we will update the website and contact everyone who has booked. We will then either refund your bookings in full, or carry them over to SkegMiniFest 2021, whichever you prefer.
In the meantime, stay safe, stay apart but connected, and cross your fingers.
The SkegMiniFest Team.
SkegMiniFest 2020 - Number 10 planning underway
After another sell-out and a record figure raised in 2019, we're hoping for more of the same in 2020. YOU can help us do that by being a guest at SkegMiniFest 2020.
As ever, the SMF elves (and our one gnome) are hard at work behind the scenes to deliver our 10th event - yes, that's right, we've made it to double figures!
We have - as ever - listened to our guests and we have - as ever - some subtle changes to come.
As usual though, we have:
- a full weekend's camping
- a host of live acts throughout
- traders and more
- the (optional) barbecue and a special low price menu for guests
- the virtually famous and quite popular £100 prize raffle
- the curiously popular Skeglextric, this year with a new, slightly familiar track layout
- toilets and showers on site
- prizes for the best Minis, as voted for by our guests
- phone charging available at the information tent
And as an extra treat this year, we've also got a couple of Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight flypasts over the weekend!
Booking will be open shortly, watch this space!
