The Colchester Highland Games & Gathering aims to attract thousands of spectators, vendors, competitors and their families & friends.
The cost of our Vendor spaces gives great value, with the potential of having a massive passing trade in a very short space of time. Own tents, tables & chairs required as we have a limited amount of these available.
Your logo will also be advertised on our website preceding the games.
We are a non profit organisation and all 'donations' go back into our local community.
THANK YOU for your support in helping us make Colchester great.
