Colchester Town Centre reopening

Non-essential retail is open, including personal care premises such as hairdressers and nail salons; and public buildings, including libraries and community centres.

Hospitality venues will be allowed to serve people outdoors and there will be no need for customers to order a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks and no curfew, although customers must order, eat and drink while seated (table service). Wider social contact rules will apply in all these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households.

We're making sure that residents and visitors enjoy all that the town centre has to offer safely.
