Winterfest is coming!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Brightlingsea’s reputation as a small town with a big warm heart will be given a boost by the 2023 Brightlingsea WinterFest, which, for the first time, is linking with the new Brightlingsea Literary Festival.


We are privileged to have been selected, once again, by Winterfest as a charity partner for donations from this year’s event. Mid and North East Essex Mind are the leading local mental health charity and we are here to help ensure no one faces a mental health problem alone. There are so many positive benefits to our mental health participating in the kind of events that this year’s Winterfest has to offer whilst connecting with the community of Brightlingsea. All funds donated will support those living with a mental health condition in the Mid and North East Essex area.


A “Warming your Hearts” theme has been chosen for this year’s WinterFest, Brightlingsea’s popular annual festival of music, arts and spoken word, which has a packed programme of mostly free events running throughout February.

The first ever Brightlingsea Literary Festival, presented by the town’s BrightWords Creative Writing Group, is to run alongside WinterFest during February, bringing even more community-based attractions to spark creativity and encourage wellbeing.
