About this Event

7pm on Saturday 17th – 9am on Sunday 18th February 2024

Knightzzz at the Castle is back!

If you’ve ever wondered what Colchester Castle is like at night, then this is your chance to find out. Join the team for a sleepover experience like no other. Set up camp in your chosen spot and get ready for a fun-packed overnight adventure. Meet historical characters, enjoy a tour of the Castle (including spaces not normally open to the public), take part in some fun activities and feast on late-night hot chocolate, before a light breakfast when you wake up.

The activities before bed were great; sleeping in the prison was amazing. We all had lots of fun, the staff were brilliant! Thank you!

This event is suitable for ages 5+, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone who spends a night inside Colchester Castle can mark the occasion with an extra special badge! Badges cost just £2 each and can be purchased the following morning from the Castle gift shop.
