Discover the Best Events and Festivals for Kids in Brightlingsea, Essex

As the principal of Thorrington Dance Academy, I'm always on the lookout for fun and engaging activities for children in the Brightlingsea area. That's why I've put together this guide to the best events and festivals for kids in our town and the surrounding area. Whether you're looking for something to do on a rainy day or want to make the most of the summer sun, there's something here for everyone.

The Brightlingsea Christmas Tree Festival

One of the highlights of the festive season in Brightlingsea is the annual Christmas Tree Festival. Local businesses, organisations and individuals come together to create stunning Christmas trees, which are displayed in the town's All Saints' Church. Visitors can vote for their favourite tree and enjoy refreshments in the church café. The festival runs for three days in early December and is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.

The Brightlingsea One Design Regatta

The Brightlingsea One Design Regatta takes place every August and is a must-see event for sailing enthusiasts. The regatta is open to all sailors, regardless of age or experience, and includes a range of races and competitions. Spectators can watch the action from the shore or from one of the many boats that take to the water for the event.

The Brightlingsea Food and Drink Festival

If you're a foodie, you won't want to miss the annual Brightlingsea Food and Drink Festival. The festival takes place in the town's Victoria Place and features a range of local food and drink producers. Visitors can sample everything from artisan bread and cheese to locally brewed beer and cider. There's also live music and entertainment throughout the day.

The Brightlingsea Carnival

The Brightlingsea Carnival is a highlight of the town's summer calendar. The event features a colourful parade through the town, followed by a range of activities and entertainment in the carnival field. There are rides, stalls, games and plenty of food and drink options. The carnival is a great day out for all the family.

The Brightlingsea Open Gardens Weekend

The Brightlingsea Open Gardens Weekend takes place every June and offers visitors the chance to explore some of the town's most beautiful gardens. The event is organised by the Brightlingsea Horticultural Society and includes a range of gardens, from small cottage gardens to large landscaped plots. There are also plant sales and refreshments available throughout the weekend.
