About Historic Events CIC

We are a Community Interest Company. We are non-profit making. In short, we are for the people, by the people, for the many, not the few.

But just as important we are dedicated to creating wonderful, exciting, fun, enjoyable, and educational events for everyone.

This area is so full of history. We want to bring it alive for you to enjoy.

We have one major event in 2024 handed over to us by Food and Drink Festivals UK who still produce the wonderful Colchester Food and Drink Festival (

This year we are joining in with celebrations for Colchester’s City status.

As a Community Interest Company you can now volunteer to help, join in the planning and take part in both our Medieval and Roman Festivals. Do drop us a line if you’re interested in getting involved!
