THIS IS EVENT IS NOW OVER. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news on what's happening in Colchester.

{Colchester Presents} Light and Shades, a spooky themed fun day for all the family on Saturday 31 October, 9am-9pm.

Plenty of hocus pocus will be cast upon the town centre – walk along the High Street without traffic, enjoy creepy craft workshops, ghoulish games, live music, zombie jugglers, steampunk magicians, spooky tours and storytelling. Oh, and watch out for the ghoulishly fun characters around the town centre. There will be plenty of food stalls to fill your appetite.

The spooky fun continues at Firstsite with a traditional ghost train - once on board, be prepared to be frightened with ghostly goings on. A mixture of giggles and screams guaranteed - you wouldn't want to miss it!

Whatever you do, don’t leave too soon. As it gets dark, make your way to the High Street as Colchester Borough Council hosts fire juggling shows, light performers, live music and a light show on Colchester Town Hall from 5pm-9pm.
