Free community festival to be held in Chelmsford on 1 October

A free family festival at Anglia Ruskin University on 1 October promises to both open your eyes and tickle your taste buds!

The Festival for the Senses event at the Chelmsford campus features a host of activities for people of all ages, including circus and pottery workshops, a puppet show, arts and crafts, live music and much more. Visitors can take on the giant buzz wire, and there will also be a fun photo booth with free pictures. 

Activities have been chosen to encourage people to explore all five of their senses and have fun in an educational environment.

Rachel Moss, Public Engagement Officer at Anglia Ruskin University, said: 


“Our second annual Festival for the Senses will give people of all ages the chance to get creative, explore their senses and enjoy plenty of fun experiences.

“There will be something for everyone, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming as many people as possible onto our Chelmsford campus.”

The free event will take place from 10am until 2pm on Saturday, 1 October. Refreshments will be available all day. For further details, visit

The event will coincide with an open day where people can find out more about studying at Anglia Ruskin.
