Be associated with one of the cultural highlights of the East Anglian calendar.

During our three-week music and arts festival every autumn, over 100 world-class musicians visit North Essex to give over 25 concerts in over 15 venues.

Almost 4,000 tickets were sold in 2015. We also produce a year-round music education programme and a new series Roman River Music @ the Mercury Theatre in Colchester.
