The Maldon District offers a full calendar of entertainment to suit all interests and budgets with a quality event to attend whatever time of year you decide to visit, often staged in quirky venues that are sure to make your experience unique and memorable. Watch our annual firework display set against the spectacular backdrop of traditional Thames Barges, or a popular drama performed in a tractor shed. Dance the night away in a WWI aerodrome hanger, listen to a world-class choir perform in an historic chapel, or camp like a castaway on beautiful Northey Island. Colourful regattas, family fun, beer festivals, country shows, music, culture, the inspiring Saltmarsh 75 endurance challenge, and of course, the wacky, internationally renowned Mud Race, all have their home here!

Maldon Choral presents an Evening with Elgar, Sea Pictures, Nimrod, the Music Makers and selected romantic songs. Sea Pictures will be sung by Mezzo Soprano Jessica Ouston and Nimrod will be played by the organist Michael Frith. The performance will be directed by Gillian Ward-Russell.

Latchingdon Arts and Drama Society (LADS) proudly present the Importance of Being Earnest, a trivial comedy for serious people, a play by Oscar Wilde. This famous comedy/farce is set in Victorian London, where the main players invent fictitious characters for themselves in order to escape burdensome social obligations.
