About Keep Colchester Cool

The idea for Keep Colchester Cool came to me over a lunchtime drink with a friend in September 2009. We were chatting about how good Colchester can be if you know where to go, but it wasn’t always easy to find out about everything what was going on in the town each week.

I created the Keep Colchester Cool Facebook group that afternoon, and it now has over 2800 members who are updated on all that’s unique in Colchester. The success of the Facebook group inspired me to launch this website; a platform where like-minded people can find out what’s going on, and what’s good, in Britain’s oldest recorded town.

In summary, Keep Colchester Cool:
Promotes Colchester’s music and arts scene.
Supports venues that feature gigs, live music, specialist nights, specialist DJs, and all aspects of the Arts.
Supports organisations, charities, restaurants, bars, pubs and shops that bring something unique to the town.

This website is by no means a site for everything that goes on here in Colchester, but it is a site that proudly features the best events and venues that you can go to.

Please get in contact if you’d like to contribute to the website, I’m always on the look out for guest writers with good content.

Thanks for your support.
