Heritage Open Days in Colchester (Weekend Two)

Visit Colchester, Hollytrees Museum, High Street

Heritage Open Days return to Colchester in 2019 over two weekends. It’s a perfect opportunity to plan a short break in the town, or for residents to explore some of the town’s more unusual history and heritage. Weekend two is a smaller affair than the first weekend, but you’ll still find lots to explore.

Highlights include a family fun day and market in St Botolph’s Priory, special access to the Lepra Museum in Middleborough, and guided tours around the historic Sparlings Solicitors Building in the Dutch Quarter. St Peter’s Church will be opening its doors and a special exhibition will be on display in Greyfriars Hotel.

For more information about all the events taking place over both weekends visit http://www.visitcolchester.com/HODs2019

Big Bike Revival: Introduction to Essential Bike Maintenance

Colchester Bike Kitchen, 15 Queen Street

Level: Beginner
Price: FREE
Join us for an introductory session in taking care of your bike.

In this workshop we’ll take you through an M-Check, a step-by-step process that helps you check each part of your bike is working as it should be.

We won’t be fixing things during the workshop itself, instead focusing on how you know if everything’s working ok, but the Bike Kitchen will be open all day if you’d like to stick around and do a bit of tinkering afterwards.

Please bring your own bike if you’d like some hands-on practice

This course is run as part of Cycling UK’s Big Bike Revival, so we’re offering it for FREE instead the usual £5. Please reserve your spot though as places are limited.

We will be running more courses over the winter, so please consider following us on facebook or signing up to our mailing list to hear of upcoming events.

CBK is staffed entirely by volunteers and funded by donations and small grants. All we ask in return for a whole evening of using our workshop is a minimum donation of £5 to help cover our running costs.
