October 2019 update
We are about to announce the theme for Colchester Carnival 2020. Watch this space it's going to be amazing....
Last year ...
2019's theme is 'Colchester and Proud" which you can come at from a number of angles.
Maybe you want to think about what Colchester is famous for?
You can also think about what Colchester is famous for more recently such as it's night life, Colchester Zoo and the Mercury theatre.
Being proud though isn't just about what we are famous for. We are proud of our emergency services, our shopping (Fenwicks, formerly Williams & Griffins as an example). We are proud of the night time volunteers such as the SOS bus but most importantly we should just be proud to be from, live in or work in Colchester.
It is a great town with a lot going for it. So we want groups from all communities to be involved as being a multi cultural town is something we are all proud of.
As you can see the theme offers so much opportunity. The main thing is that you show off the best of Colchester, using sound, light and movement to bring it alive. Just making the Carnival as vibrant and inclusive as possible is something we can all be proud of.
