Charter Hall

Charter Hall Colchester is a multipurpose events venue in the heart of Colchester and is fast becoming a ‘go to destination’ for the best in live music, comedy, sports and special events. A packed programme of events brings great value entertainment with Jack Whitehall, Sarah Millican and Martin Kemp among the many class acts we’ve welcomed to the Charter Hall stage.

Find Charter Hall

Colchester Events supports the Council's declaration of a climate emergency and net zero emissions target by 2030, and the need for us all to reduce the environmental impact of our lifestyles. One way we can do this is by travelling by walking, cycling or using public transport, rather than cars where possible. Please see the information about travelling to our event locations by walking, cycling and using public transport. Information is also listed about parking where this is necessary.

Charter Hall is a short walk from the town centre through Castle Park, with great local bus links and within walking distance of Colchester North and Colchester Town Station.

By Bike

There are plenty of bike stands outside the main Leisure World entrance. You can download the Colchester Cycle Map from the Cycle Colchester website, or use one of our suggested routes on this map

By Bus

Colchester Town Centre is well served by most buses including the Park & Ride, stopping within a 15 minute walk of Charter Hall through Castle Park and the Dutch Quarter.
