Community to reach for the stars this Christmas!

A dazzling community star project is set to light up Colchester this Christmas and give local children the chance to show off their artistic flair.

Arty youngsters will be bringing festive cheer to the town centre by decorating 650 3D stars with vibrant and eye-catching designs.

Participating local schools were provided with 20 to 30 stars each to turn into individual works of art.

Once completed, the hand-painted artwork will be installed around Colchester town centre to be discovered and enjoyed by visitors throughout the festive season.

A selection of the pupil’s stars will be hung in Fenwick Colchester’s atrium throughout December and in other key location around the town, such as Culver Square, Colchester Library, and many of the independent stores.

Here at In Colchester, we are incredibly proud to be supporting the art in local schools and celebrating the festive season in the town.

The project is also supported by Colchester Borough Council, Fenwick and Culver Square Shopping Centre and after the event, all of the stars will be returned to the local schools for them to keep.

Follow our star trail!

Keep your eyes peeled for details of our Star Trail to find every single star being displayed around Colchester.

We’ll soon be sharing information on the whereabouts of each school’s stars to be found on
