LOCAL musicians, artists and comedians will entertain crowds across seven locations at a new festival in Colchester this weekend.

The St Botolph’s BIG Sunday has been organised to show off local talent and showcase the town’s cultural quarter.

Organisers hope the event will give people who usually attend the Colchester Free Festival, and those who were let down by the cancellation of the I Am Music festival, something to look forward to.

It will run from midday to midnight on Sunday.
