Walk Colchester: Jane’s Walk Fundraising Supper


Please note this event is now sold out.

Join Walk Colchester and chefs The Gamekeeper’s Daughter (Young Chef of the Year 2017, Suffolk Food and Drink Awards), Good Souls Bakery & Unique Bakes, for a supper to raise funds to support this year’s Jane’s Walk Colchester weekend (May 4th – 7th 2018) – a free walking festival that takes place in towns and cities worldwide on the first weekend in May to honour the life and legacy of the urbanist Jane Jacobs.

Enjoy a three-course meal and evening of entertainment, with food sponsored by East of England Co-op and an after-supper talk on ‘Walking and Nature: The Health Benefits’ by Jules Pretty, author of The East Country: Tales of Valley and Shore (2017).

This is the 8th year that Colchester has hosted this by now much-loved festival. Proceeds from the evening will support all publicity expenses and related weekend events, allowing the festival to continue to be enjoyed entirely free, as originally conceived, by all participants.
