Charity and community groups

As part of the festival, we are keen to involve local community groups that are raising money for causes in this area.

We have dedicated six pitches to these groups – on a first come first basis – who are Harwich or Dovercourt based.

These pitches are available at a reduced fee – please get in touch here for more information.

As well as the Maritime Festival encouraging more visitors to the area and in turn boosting the local economy, it will also be donating surplus profits to good causes in the Harwich and Dovercourt area.

If you have any questions about the festival or would like some more information, please give us a call on 01255 243030 or 
email us.
