MEET YOUR HEROES (AND VILLAINS!)
From Buffy to Batman, Gamorrean Guards to Ghostbusters and Disney Princesses to Dredd, the streets of Colchester will be filled with your favourite characters to meet and greet!
The Dukes Of Hazzard and Starsky & Hutch will be among the famous four-wheelers in display. Also look out for some Resident Evil vehicles!
MISTER STAY PUFT
Straight from the corner of Spook Central we have a huge, 35 ft tall Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to celebrate 30 years of Ghostbusters.
Find certain characters located all around Colchester and collect the stamps. When your sheet is full, return it to ACE Comics to be entered into a prize draw. Entry sheets cost a £1.00 donation.
FANCY DRESS COMPETITION
The Fun & Games Children’s Fancy Dress Competition returns, with fabulous prizes to be won. Entrants must be 12 or under. Judges will be wandering around the town centre handing out spot-prizes to their favourite costumes throughout the day. Good luck!!
The Invasion Colchester Crew will be on the streets with Prize Draw Tickets available for purchase. We have some amazing prizes up for grabs and you can see them here.
Our favourite local artists will be performing in Lion Walk Shopping Centre. We will have a full line-up once they are all confirmed.
The fabulous dancers from the Ratnavali Tribal Collective will be performing impromptu displays around Colchester and look out for magic from steampunk magician Dean Allen Jones and freerunning from Team Kinetix.
Our special guests – Ralph Morse and Nick Jospeh – have appeared in a number of classic movies and TV series, including Star Wars, James Bond, Superman and Doctor Who!
If you’re as hungry as a zombie and fancy something meaty or sweet to tuck in to, we’ve got the perfect bites for you from the Burrito Boys’ mexican masterpieces to Cupcake Maison’s heavenly ‘horror’ cupcakes. Why not follow it up with a superb snow-cone from East Coast Shaved Ice!
Horror make-up maestro Clive Double will be at Invasion Colchester 2014 with his box of tricks. Look out for his army of the undead, some of whom have raised money by getting sponsored to become a zombie for the day.
If you see any of our amazing Invasion Colchester Crew on the streets with a charity bucket, please drop in some change and show your support for the great local charities we are raising money for.
