Invasion Colchester

Events — Invasion Colchester

07/09/2019 until 07/09/2019

Back by popular demand, Invasion Colchester is returning for its 8th year and once again is set to take over the whole of Colchester. Last year the event raised £13,629 which was shared between for St Helena Hospice and Colchester Hospitals Charity; and this year, we hope to top that! The event will take place on Saturday 7th September from 10am until 4pm with visitors to Colchester being transported into a ‘fantasy world’.

Culver Square will be packed full of fun including;
