Another hot weekend forecast. If you aren’t heading to the beach, or bbq-ing at home, there are plenty of events across Essex this weekend.
If you fancy some outdoor cinema, Cromwell Manor in Pitsea is showing ‘The Bodyguard’ and ‘Grease’.
Kentwell Hall’s Magic Weekend Special Event promises a lot of magic and mystery, witches and wizards and much more.
Following its hugely successful debut last year, Stow Maries at War is a national-level living-history event focussing on the British Armed Forces of the Great War.
Marks Hall Garden and Country Show
is a country show with birds of prey, heavy horses, stalls, and 100 classic cars.
The Wings & Wheels Family Festival 2018 at Damyns Hall promises 100s of classic and interesting cars & bikes on display, military vehicles, aircraft, and much more.
How about burning off some calories with the London to Southend Bike Ride. If a 52mile ride is a bit easy peasy for you, you can do an optional loop via Shoeburyness to bring it up to 65miles!
The Forgotten Gardens of Easton Lodge Open Day : Time to remember – the Gardens and the World Wars is “an opportunity to explore the World War history of the Gardens and estate; and commemorate the men and women who lost their lives in World War II.”
The Essex Bus Rally has moved to Barleylands and aims to “attract around 100 buses and coaches, this will make us one of the largest bus events in the South East of England and an event that is sure to be on everyone’s calendar.”
“Three very interesting and contrasting gardens to enjoy in the unique and ancient maritime town of Brightlingsea” are open as part of the National Garden Scheme
There is lots more happening this weekend, including lots of gardens open for National Garden Schene – for more ideas visit our July Events in Essex page.
As the weather is so nice, how about a visit to the Essex Coast – the longest coast in England (on account of all those fiddly in and out bits!) – check out our Essex Coast page for some ideas. Or why not visit a Country Park?
And why not tie in a visit somewhere with a trip to the cinema – we have links to several independent cinemas across Essex.
And check out our Museums in Essex page – there are probably a lot more than you know about!
