Posted: Wednesday 7 August 2019
WHAT'S ON IN ESSEX & SUFFOLK
The countdown to the biggest Bank Holiday weekend of the year is finally over. Here are our top five suggestions of what to see and do across Essex and Suffolk:
 August is Essex Wildlife Trust’s Marine Month. Join them for a guided litter pick along The Naze beaches and the edge of the John Weston nature reserve. This event is part of their Marine wildlife celebration event at The Naze on Saturday 24th August.
 If you're a fan of a good old fashioned treasure trail (or elephants for that matter) then head over to Ipswich for the long weekend. Based on the much loved children’s character, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, you'll discover 55 individually designed elephants dotted around the town. Tons of fun for everyone!
 Back by popular demand check out Street Eats 'n' Beats on Saturday 24th August at Kings Meadow, Chelmsford. It's a street food party with local DJ's and pop up bars and comes with our seal of approval.
 For something a little more unusual head over to Castle Park, Colchester on Sunday 25th August. You'll be able to witness and watch The Panto Horse Derby Bank Holiday 2019. This one's a serious event for Age UK - so no horsing around!
 Take a stroll around Hanningfield Reservoir. The nature reserve offers some beautiful walks through the woodland, taking in bird hides, ponds and views across the reservoir. You can also venture through the reserve to the Essex & Suffolk Water Fishing Lodge and the Cafe on the Water.
