Whilst our volunteer editors will do their best to ensure our events listings are as up to date and accurate as possible; with the fast pace of how things are changing, it is inevitable that some will slip through the net. If you are planning on travelling for larger events, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly to avoid disappointment. We are putting in place new measures to give event organisers a friendly reminder to see if they wish to remove cancelled events, so we're sorry if it looks a bit bare in here :(

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for free, professional advice.

Events this Month

Macbeth, 22nd May 2024 to 25th May 2024, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (20.8 miles)
Macbeth! Beware Macduff. In this modern-day production, Duncan, his cronies, Macbeth, and his political ambition are transported into the corridors of Westminster. It's not the opposition you need fear, but whoever sits next to you. Shakespeare's Macbeth is timeless, being as relevant today as it was 400 years ago.

Advisory: This play includes scenes of violence, suicide and the use of blood and weapons.

Tickets £15 plus booking fee.

Saturday matinee at 2.30 pm.

Warm your hearts with Frozen JR.! This spectacular 60 minute musical is based on the 2013 Disney film and the 2018 Broadway adaptation.

Maybe Dick , 2nd June 2024, 19:00 to 22:00 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (20.8 miles)
Herman Melville's tale of revenge and retribution on the high seas is retold in this inventive, comedic adventure! Nantucket, 1841.

Suitable for 12+

Tickets £15, £12 plus booking fee.


Fur Coat and No Knickers, 5th June 2024 to 8th June 2024, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (20.8 miles)
The Rejects return to The Headgate Theatre after their recent successes with ‘Abigail’s Party’, ‘Boeing Boeing’, ‘Little Voice’, and ‘Bouncers’. This sidesplitting play is unashamedly politically incorrect. It transports us to riotous antics at the wedding of Deirdre and Mark. The fun begins on the stag night when an inebriated Mark is chained to a lamppost with a blow-up rubber doll. The wedding itself is hysterical too, with half the guests, including the priest, suffering blinding hangovers. If you delight in comic chaos and a night of high-spirited farce this is the play for you.

Contains adult themes and language.

Saturday matinee at 3pm

Tickets £15,£13.50 plus booking fee.
