Stay at The Orchards Holiday Park to Enjoy Plenty of Great Events in Essex this Summer

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 18, 2011) - This summer the coast of Essex is coming alive with a whole host of fun events and plenty of things to do with the family. Enjoying everything that is on offer is easy to do on family holidays to The Orchards Holiday Park, where you are within close reach to all of the action.

Haven's The Orchards Holiday Park is located on the tranquil coastal setting of Clacton-on-Sea, a perfect distance away from local towns Colchester and Brightlingsea where a number of events are taking place this summer.

Music fans will love the annual Brightlingsea Music Festival that's being held from the 5th to the 7th August. This free music festival runs in various pubs throughout the seaside resort of Brightlingsea showcasing local bands and talent.

Something that the kids will enjoy this summer is the Glee Style Dance Workshops running on various dates at Headgate Theatre in Colchester this August. Children ages 7 to 12 years old will love learning dance moves and creating costumes for stars such as Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson. They can also have a photograph taken as a great souvenir from the day.

For families who fancy learning about local history during their holidays in Essex, if you head down to Colchester Castle between the 8th and 11th of August you can hear Medieval Tales where kids can get involved in the storytelling and will really feel like a part of the tale.

Other events happening this summer include the Leigh-on-Sea Fishing Festival on the 31st July, where families are invited to learn all about Leigh's fishing industry and heritage. Families can also head down to Burnham-on-Crouch to enjoy the Six Island Cruise, exploring the hidden group of islands nestled in the south east corner of Essex.

Neil Ainsworth, General Manager at The Orchards said "There's so much happening in Essex this summer and The Orchards Holiday Park provides a perfect base to go off exploring the area however there's also plenty for all the family to enjoy right here on the park with a full programme of great entertainment and activities for kids of all ages throughout the summer."
