A black and white illustration of some of the figures featured in this walk.


Colchester has always been an epicentre of radicalism: from John Ball’s Peasants Revolt to The modern Poll Tax riots: and from the three day battle of St Botolphs to the Siege: the fight for margarine in Long Wyre Street and the one-boy battle against caning.

Join Dorian Kelly as he takes you in his inimitable combination of stories, poetry and street theatre on a covid-safe constitutional cabinet of curiosities through the town centre.
