Half Term Fun

Looking to keep the whole family happy this half term?

Half term is the perfect time to enjoy some quality time with your friends and family and we know just the place.

We have something for everyone, whether you're looking to hit the shops, hoping to keep the little ones entertained or looking forward to a delicious meal out, we really do have something for everyone.

Look out for our colouring wall!

Bring the kids for a day out of fun at Braintree Village and get them to be creative! Our massive design will feature a mixture of shopping features and some local landmarks. Can you spot our very own Polo Ralph Lauren store, Cressing Temple or Colchester Zoo? 

The Tiptree Bus is coming to Braintree Village!

The expertly converted 1967 Routemaster, with stylish upper deck seating and a rather clever hydraulic roof (weather dependent!) is coming to Braintree Village.

From the 14th - 16th February celebrate ‘Valentines’ or ‘Galentines’ with a Cream Tea and Cocktail on board the Tiptree Bus!

Reserve a booth for a treat with your friends or a table for a romantic afternoon with that special someone. 

Tiptree will also have a pop up shop alongside the bus, selling their globally renown conserves, liqueurs and gifts.  

Free live entertainment

Funky Voices, the largest multi award winning modern community choir, will be performing at the Village on Saturday 15th February.

Watch and enjoy the choirs 30 minute live performance at 1pm, under the Nike Tower - the perfect way to start the half term holidays!
