“A tour de force in medievalism that’s the biggest of its type in Europe” – The Sunday Times

This Sunday Times comment sums up the wonderful Colchester Medieval Fayre and Oyster Market. "Medieval stalls selling all sorts of wonderful historic crafts, entertainers from the period. Children enthralled by the story tellers. Music wafting from every corner."

Mummers, mimers, rymers, beggars, peddlars. Just soak up the atmosphere of the market. Revel in the joys of the fayre. Modern craft area. Wonderful food court with medieval and modern delicacies. Picnic areas. ‘The Pikestaff Inn’ selling real ale, mead, wines and chilled lagers.
