Roman theme for Colchester Oyster Festival
1:30pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
THIS year’s Colchester Oyster Festival will have a Roman theme.
The event in Lower Castle Park on Saturday, September 7 will feature gladiators, a catapult, and Roman food and music.
The oysters will be delivered by boat.
Don Quinn, organiser from Snake in the Grass, said: “We have never had the Roman theme at the festival before.
“But it’s obvious really - Romans, oysters and Colchester all fit.
“The Romans really adored Colchester oysters and used to pack them in ice and send them all the way to Rome.”
The festival will take place from 10.30am to 5pm.
Entry is £4.50 for adults.
