Winter is a strange season. Cold, dark and yet filled with twinkling lights, bright wrapping paper and highly annoying festive tunes that follow you around every shop you enter.
And then suddenly it's January; all the colour and noise disappears and it feels like an age before spring returns.
Plus when it comes to those colder months, sometimes it can be much too easy to just stay at home in the warm, watching whatever rubbish is on the television. How many times have you spent five straight minutes flicking through hundreds of channels to come to the conclusion that 'there's nothing on'?
Well, actually, if you just stepped outside, you would discover that there is plenty on. Here in Colchester, we are incredibly lucky to have the Mercury Theatre Colchester literally on our doorsteps. And from just £26, you can become a Friend of your local theatre and gain access to the best seats in the house before everyone else!
From Wednesday 27th November 2013, the doors open on the Mercury Theatre's 2014 programme of performances, which means you can book the shows you want to watch and have lots to look forward to this winter!
And don't forget – the Mercury Theatre Colchester is family friendly, so there are plenty of shows on that cater for all ages.
What's on in 2014?
