The day will start with a Fairtrade breakfast as part of the Fairtrade fortnight (booking for larger groups) followed by raising of the Commonwealth flag by the Mayor of Colchester. Then by a multicultural (open/ free) event which is expected to have a large turn out and will consist of different food stalls, fashion, music, artefacts and other cultural displays including afternoon tea with Colchester Fairtrade.
