Colchester Highland Games & Gathering

The Colchester Games is a multicultural event uniting the peoples of our county in one event. 

It is a traditional Highland Games with a twist. 

We not only endeavour to bring you all the traditional elements of a Scottish Highland Games such as

Heavy weights, Highland Dancers and Pipes &Drums

but a variety of events in order to keep the whole family entertained.

In this, our second year, we are bringing a host of new activities and entertainment to our schedule. 

We will also have indoor facilities if weather is inclement.

You will find all the information you need on the following pages. 


We hope you will be able to join us for a spectacular show on

September 8th & 9th 2018 at our New Venue
