A Civic Ceremonial IV: A Walking Tour of Britains Oldest Recorded Comedy Town

15th October 2016


A Walking Tour of Britain’s Oldest Recorded Comedy Town with His Worshipfulness A Mayor of Colchester.

Upon the 12th and 15th days of October, in the year of Our Lord 2016 and in celebration of the Fourth Colchester Comedy Festival, the good citizenry of North Essex are courteously requested to join His Worshipfulness A Mayor of Colchester on this unprecedented, unrivalled and largely unwarranted excursion into the comedic history of East Anglia’s most righteous, steadfast and unremittingly ludicrous town.

Ably assisted by grovelling Town Clerk; Mister Tymperleys, and the Grand Jape Master Respondent; Timothy St. John Mycroft Young, A Mayor will, with great pomp and in no reasonable circumstance, expose the vibrant cultural heart of Colchester and make tatty jokes about it. Expect shocking truths, shocking lies and shocking leg wear...
The Corporation of Colchester takes no responsibility for the accuracy of any information imparted during the Tour, its impartiality, or its overall safety. Should any audience members unexpectedly die during the Tour His Worshipfulness assumes the right of Civic Precedence with regards to the disposal of any monies found upon their still warm bodies...

This will be a “pay what you can” performance, but numbers are strictly limited and Tickets must be booked in advance via the Box Office of Colchester Arts Centre on 01206 500900.

Tours will commence at 1pm and 3pm on Wednesday October 12th and at 2pm and 4pm on Saturday October 15th.

Groups are requested to assemble before the Town Hall 10 minutes before their allocated tour time. Tours will last approximately one hour.

Attendees are advised to bring stout walking underwear and a change of opinion.
