A NEW guide detailing all the exciting events coming up in Colchester has been released.

Colchester Events' The Ticket is now available online and at the Visitor Information Centre, at Hollytrees Museum.

It features a run down of all the upcoming events in venues like Castle Park as well as Charter Hall.

Essex pop superstar Olly Murs, who is performing in Castle Park this Sunday, was one of the first people to get his hands on a copy.

Olly features in the guide alongside other stars like music icon Jason Donovan and comedian John Bishop, who are also performing in Colchester this year.

A spokesman for the Colchester Events said: "Summer is finally here and with it the good news that, with lockdown restrictions lifting, we can begin to enjoy open-air events and great nights out in Colchester once again.

"What better way to celebrate new beginnings than with the launch of The Ticket, the new look events guide from Colchester Events?

"Inside you’ll find all the great music, comedy, festivals, talks, sport and more coming to Colchester this summer and autumn."
