This Essex Book Festival is drawing to a close but there are still lots of authors, and events for the wannabee authors amongst you.
This Saturday is one of four this year in which the Royal Gunpowder Mills is open as part of Invitation to View. This gives you a chance to get see more of the ‘most important site for the history of explosives in Europe’ than you would normally get to see. Stout boots are required, and hard hats are provided.
And on Sunday, the quirky Talliston House in Great Dunmow is also open as part of Invitation to View.
There is a ‘we are handmade’ craft fayre in Coggeshall. Head over there and also pay a visit to Paycocke’s House and Gardens and Grange Barn. There are a couple of places to eat in town (we head for The Chapel Inn when we go there).
Check out our March Events in Essex listing for other events this weekend.
Why not browse our Active Essex page for lots of ideas for getting some exercise in 2017? Find a road race, bike ride, triathlon, or charity event to aim for and get in some training!
Whilst things are a little quiet, why not tie in a visit somewhere with a trip to the cinema – we have listings for some independent cinemas across Essex, in some interesting towns across the county. You can see ‘Manchester By the Sea’ at Harwich Electric Palace, ‘T2 Trainspotting’ at Essex Outdoor Cinema events?
And check out our Museums in Essex page – there are probably a lot more than you know about!
