What’s on in Essex this weekend…

There’s an interesting range of events on in Essex over this weekend.

Half-term starts at the end of this weekend, so there’s a focus on that on our February events in Essex page.

For those who don’t have children to entertain, a couple of Sunday afternoon Valentine’s Day events take our fancy. You can listen to The Glenn Miller Orchestra with The Swing Time Jivers and The Polkadot Dolls in Southend. There is a Valentine’s Afternoon Tea at The Museum of Power in Langford. And there’s an Afternoon Tea Dance in the atmospheric setting of the Stow Maries Aerodrome Mess Hall.

If the weather is set fair, why not take a trip to look at some snowdrops at The Gibberd Garden, or Hedingham Castle

For evening entertainment there’s a range of comedy acts on, and you can see Loose Women’s Lisa Maxwell as Judy Garland in ‘Over the Rainbow’, a brass ensemble, Singa-along-a-Grease, Rose Marie, and there’s an evening with Rick Wakeman (will he play Life on Mars, as
he so memorably did on Radio 2 the other week??

If you want something a bit livelier there is Dropkixx Wrestling at Brentwood Theatre.

If it’s fresh air your after, check out our listings for Country Parks, and Gardens listings. And there’s our new Essex Coast listing if some want some sea-breezes to blow the cobwebs away – like we did recently in Tollesbury!

And check out our Winter Walks in Essex for some ideas.
