Ready for a free, fun, family day out? Then make your way to Castle Park in the centre of Colchester for the Free Family Fun Festival. The festival will be open on Saturday 14 September between 11am – 4pm and you’ll find lots of brilliant, free things for all the family to enjoy including bouncy castles, face painting, games and activities.

The Park is split into two distinct areas – Upper and Lower Castle Park. You’ll find us on Lower Castle Park. You can reach Castle Park on foot from the east end of Colchester High Street – simply follow the signs. Alternatively, free parking is available for festival families on a first come, first served basis. Head to Kings Meadow which has a path leading directly to Lower Castle Park. (Please note: this is the entrance you’ll have to use if you’re bringing a dog with you as dogs are welcome in Lower Castle Park but not allowed in Upper Castle Park.)
