About The Evening

The Mercury Theatre is taking over Colchester Town Hall with a fabulous gala dinner. The first of its kind for us, we are raising money for our exciting Mercury Rising capital appeal to transform our theatre and our offering to the Colchester community.

The event we have planned will see our talented friends entertain you throughout the evening, alongside our special host and friend Richard Wilson OBE. Famed for his award-winning One Foot in the Grave, Richard is also a revered stage presence and celebrated director.

Enjoy a champagne reception, 3 course meal with wine and after-dinner entertainment mixed with some great stories, fundraising games and an exclusive auction that includes coveted tickets to see sold-out Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Our prize draw also includes prizes kindly donated by Stoke By Nayland Hotel & Golf Club, Essex Wine School, Lifehouse Spa, Mig Kimpton Flowers, Fenwick and Theatre Tokens.

Featuring live music from Tahir Burhan, singer Toni Lee, and from band Barney and the Rubbles.
