Adorn

Colchester Castle, Castle Park, Colchester, CO1 1UG

27th July 2019 – 16th February 2020

The first major exhibition in Colchester castle since it re-opened after its major refurbishment in 2014.

People have adorned themselves for thousands of years with jewellery, tattoos and ornaments. Find out the hidden stories these objects can tell and why we adorn ourselves in such a way.

The curators have brought together objects from collections across the region to reveal the jewellery worn by the people of Essex through time.

Alongside the exhibition there will be lots of events, including talks, craft events, a special preview evening and launch night at the Three Wise Monkeys pub in the heart of Colchester
