Join Colchester Castle on Tuesday 14 February for a very special Valentine’s evening. If you are looking for something magical to do for that history-lover in your life look no further.

Colchester Castle’s Magic of Valentine’s event is the perfect way to start your Valentine’s evening.

Cllr Tim Young, Portfolio Holder for Business and Culture and Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “Colchester Museums run an extensive programme of events for all ages, but this one is great opportunity for our older audiences to explore the museum’s collections in a quiet out-of-hours atmosphere.

“Join us in celebrating the history of love through our collections, indulge in a glass of Prosecco and enjoy the Magic of Valentine’s.”
