Dragons to baroque and more

dragonboatOur parish diary has been updated with a wealth of events over coming weeks ranging from snap-action, dragons and some baroque as well.

The Bank Holiday weekend (29th to 30th) brings an added attraction to Mersea with the Mersea Camera Club’s Exhibition at Mersea Museum.  Members of the Club will be in attendance so you can ‘talk photography’ as well as have a look at the members’ work. Any questions contact Chris Moore on 01206-735-228.

Talking of photography, Bank Holiday Sunday (29th) brings a great photo-opportunity for you snappers with the Annual Essex Air Ambulance Dragonboat Races.

Mid-September (Friday 17th) sees the UK’s biggest cycle race of the year passing just a few miles away with Stage 7 of the Tour of Britaintour_of_britain running between Tiptree and East Hill, Colchester (via Smythe’s Green, Birch, Heckfordbridge) between approximately 13:15 & 13:45.  Why not turn out to line the route and cheer on these international athletes – and best of all, it’s free!

Looking further ahead, we see the Annual Roman River (music) Festival offer a wide programme of concerts in and around the area with the opening concert taking place in St Stephen’s, Great Wigborough on Sunday 3rd October.
