The popular annual Invasion Colchester event is making a reappearance in Lion Walk Shopping Centre/Red Lion Yard and throughout Colchester on Saturday 6 September between 10am and 3.30pm to raise money for two very worthy, local charities, St Helena Hospice and the Colchester Hospitals Charity.
Since its inception back in 2011, the annual Colchester Invasion has become a “must-attend” event, and this year’s is looking to be the biggest and best yet.
Visitors to the event will be able to meet and greet their favorite heroes and villains from Buffy to Batman, Gamorrean Guards to Ghostbusters and Disney princesses to Judge Dredd.
For 2014, over 100 characters will be invading Colchester for the day providing plenty of opportunities for selfies with your favorite characters.
Another highlight of the Invasion is the impressive cars that will be on show including the Dukes Of Hazzard’s General Lee as well as cars from the renowned American cop series Starsky & Hutch. Also look out for some vehicles from the Resident Evil series.
Horror make-up maestro Clive Double will be at Invasion Colchester 2014 with his box of tricks, ready to turn members of the public into the undead, all for the price of a donation. There will also be live music performance happening in Lion Walk Shopping Centre along with many other fun activities.
John Fleming, Shopping Centre Manager at Lion Walk said:
“Invasion Colchester is always a fantastic day out and we are very proud to be part of Invasion Colchester again this year. One of Colchester’s most loved and visited events, the event provides entertainment and fun for the entire family and best of all it raises much-needed money for our local charities as well.”
