This will be a free, fun and family-friendly event. Seafood and home-cooked refreshments will be available, together with a bar and soft drinks, and there'll be plenty of straw bales and barrels to sit on.
In previous years there has been a bit of a lull in the day's proceedings after the Watersports, when the crowds tend to drift away to find ways to fill the time before the Prizegiving and the spectacular Grand Firework Display. This year, Regatta Song & Dance will keep the waterfront buzzing with energy and provide a focus for families and visitors during the early part of the evening. So come along and support this new event, and bring your family and friends.
STOP PRESS: Now with added Pirates!!
Members of the Colchester Historical Enactment Society will be at the Song & Dance dressed in full 18th-century piratical gear, and joining in the fun. Ladies - this is your big chance to dance with a Real Live Pirate!!
