Fling Festival

After 11 years of providing a unique summer festival for adults, Fling Festival will be taking a fallow year in 2020 and will return in 2021. 

We will be using the year to consider Fling’s venue and explore how we can evolve the festival which attracts thousands of festivalgoers each year. 

Karen Frett, Events Manager for Chelmsford City Events said: “We know that this will be disappointing news for those of you who join us every year at Fling but we can’t wait to see you when we return in 2021. Throughout 2020, we will be consulting with our treasured followers and asking for their feedback to help shape Fling’s return.” 

This year already promises to be a big year in the county with the Essex 2020: Year of Science and Creativity culminating in the prestigious British Science Festival coming to Chelmsford. We will be working with other organisations and the wider community to support the exciting programme of events on offer.
