A Time For Essex

Time to celebrate the history of Essex

Following its blistering success in 2021, we are very happy to confirm that ‘A Time for Essex’ will return to us in 2022.

This hugely popular, multi-period Living History, Museum and Air Display event gives us the opportunity to make the most of the rich cultural history of the County.

Our dog friendly and accessible site welcomes everyone to enjoy a day celebrating the heritage of Essex. On offer will be vintage aircraft flying (if weather permits), living history demonstrations, aircraft in hangars, and interactive exhibitions including the new Guiding the Empire and Words Without Wires. The Airmen’s Mess cafe will open for hot and cold food, drinks and cakes and the BBQ will be fired up. The shop will be open selling a wide range of gifts and souvenirs. Ticket price includes parking and access to the exhibitions.

Advance tickets only which will go on sale in early June 2022. No tickets on the gate – ADVANCE TICKET SALES ONLY!!!
Young people aged 5 years or younger – Free Admission!

We invite all Essex museums to contact us to secure a space to promote their site and work; let’s shout about our heritage. Please download the Application form. Complete it and send a digital copy to info@stowmaries.org.uk ASAP.

Enquiries should be directed to info@stowmaries.org.uk 

We welcome applications from high-standard Living History groups of any period from Early Medieval to 1970. Please note – an application does not confirm attendance, as competition is fierce and standards are high. Please expect to provide specific images of your camp and referenced kit to be vetted by our Curatorial team. No plastic camping – only Living History available.

Living History enquiries should be directed to info@stowmaries.org.uk
