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!
