There’s a couple of events coming up at Colchester Arts Centre this weekend that fit the bill for celebrating local causes.
Never Knowingly Understood?
Stop making sense, more like.
On Sunday evening we have Without Walls with Alice Goss.
This is a charity evening of poetry and music to help launch the Without Walls book, and to raise money to support the homeless around our town:
“Discover colchester’s history through poetry. An evening of poetry and music and launch night of the book entitled ‘Without Walls’ in aid of Colchester’s homeless.
Hear new poetry works relating to Colchester’s history performed by their authors plus a brief history of vagrancy in Colchester.”
Music will come from the Blue Town Jazz Band.
Entrance is a £6 with a start time of 7:30pm.
Whilst we are at it ten there’s no harm in giving the TROOPER Johnno Casson a plug for the return of the Warm and Toasty Club at the Arts Centre on Sunday afternoon.
Stretching back to the first Warm and Toasty back in 2014, the gatherings have now grown with an outreach programme taking place all over Essex.
Johnno was successful in a public vote earlier this year to land £50,000 of National Lottery funding. This is being used to continue to run the Memory Afternoons around the County.
The more mature folk in our community get to share some memories alongside new and upcoming artists. Both sides get to benefit from the knowledge of each other.
This will all be coming together at the Arts Centre at 2pm this Sunday with a Warm and Toasty showcase.
Established Colchester musician Ady Johnson will be playing. Local historian Andrew Phillips will be sharing some of his vast Sunny Colch historical knowledge.
A bargain £5 gets you in on the door.
