Watchet Festival news: We are very sad to hear today that Alf Mckay has passed away….

Latest update from Watchet Festival

We are very sad to hear today that Alf Mckay has passed away.
Regular festival goers will have seen Alf entertain everyone of all ages with his amazing magical and ballooning skills for the past 6 years. His infectious smile and twinkling eyes will be sadly missed by us all.
In honour of Alf and to remember him in a very special and poignant way we are pleased to announce (with Alf’s and his family’s blessing) that the fancy dress theme at Watchet 2020 will be “PIRATES”
Mark and I were honoured to be invited to Alf’s hometown in Blandford Forum to a special party 2 weeks ago to celebrate this gorgeous man’s life. To be able to have a chat, share stories and memories before saying goodbye was something that we’ll never forget 😢. Despite being so poorly Alf still lit up the room with his special aura, quick wit and awesome personality – we spent a sunny few hours with his family and friends in a splendid setting, just perfect.
We are sending Jo and all the family our heartfelt love at this terribly sad time.
Watchet Festival will miss both “Alf the Man” and “Alf the Pirate”very very much indeed.
RIP special man…💔💔
