Be still and listen in Colchester

Colchester hails itself as the oldest recorded town in Britain and it has a deep rooted history of creativity. Quintessentially English landscape painter, John Constable RA, was born in the area. More recently, Colchester is hometown to Blur, who helped establish Britpop. Creativity and love for the arts has never left this old town, and Sofar is helping it to thrive.
