Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.


Exhibitions focus on the art of today and range from video installations to painting and sculpture, from international figures to artists who live and work in the area. Firstsite aims to make today's art accessible and arranges workshops, talks and events both in the gallery itself and around Colchester. We can also provide information about visual art, craft and media activity at other venues in the area. The garden is an ideal spot to relax after sightseeing.
