Details

The fabulous Fox, Wiggle & Sass will be serving up their usual combination of great wartime songs with attitude so join us in our historic Victorian Goods shed for a bit of dancing, vintage teas and some great live music.

There’ll be swing jive dance workshops, ‘make do and mend’, scrumptious afternoon teas and steam train rides all day long. Meet the scary teacher in our evacuee drama ‘lessons’ but don’t be late! Classic cars, traditional rides, rock’n’roll dancing and vintage hair styling all make up this lovely day out for all the family.
Have a go on the Pump Trolley, used in the BBC Children in Need record breaking attempt last year and we’ll be running TASTER FOR A TENNER, where you can have a go at driving our diesel loco for just £10.

Our delightful miniature pub (probably the smallest pub in Essex) will be open, serving real ale from the Colchester Brewery.
