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. 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.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE SET UP TIME IS BETWEEN 5PM ON SEPTEMBER 7TH AND 9.30AM ON SEPTEMBER 8TH or 9TH.
THANK YOU for your support in helping us make Colchester great.
