Have you or your children ever wondered what Colchester Castle is like at night? Then here is your chance! Colchester Castle will be throwing open its doors on the evening of Saturday 4 April for a sleepover experience.

Knightzzz at the Museum is a family-friendly experience, packed with fun games and activities.
