The Keep Colchester Cool guide is based on what I know of, or have been advised of. I’m not guaranteeing this is always accurate and without error so best check with the venue to make sure the event is taking place before you set off. Just in case…

The deadline for an event to be considered for inclusion is 9am Monday and Thursday.

Always refer to Keep Colchester Cool news for daily updates and if anything is missing please let me know.

Cheers!
