Military Show returns to Colchester
5:00pm Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
THE COLCHESTER Military Festival is set to return this summer.
Renamed the 16 Air Assault Brigade and Colchester Garrison Show, it has teamed up with the Paras 10 run and the Armed Forces Rugby League World Cup to take over Abbey Field on Saturday, July 6.
The military festival was scrapped in 2010 to cut costs. This year’s revamped show will be free for the first time.
Colonel Mike Newman, garrison commander, said he was very proud it was making a comeback.
