Maldon In Winter 2018

Some may have seen recent callouts for interest in Maldon In Winter 2018 in the TT, and others may have had a friendly visit to their business by Ray or Carlo to encourage continued interest in this popular event. If not, don’t worry, it’s still not too late to get involved.

We already have a number of unique and interesting events lined up including dog shows, movie nights, music events, winter dinners, workshops, our regular winter themed shop window displays, Museum exhibits, The Maldon Art exhibition, installations and much more.

The primary dates of Maldon in Winter are centred around the School Holidays 30 June - 15 July, however, this year we have several events falling a week earlier and later and we are happy to include more.

If you are keen to get involved please send a short brief including an event name, location, date, time and contact number for listing in our Maldon in Winter brochure. We endeavour to lock in the details by mid May so we can go to print soon after.

Please send info and inquires to Maldon Inc, or Carlo San Giorgio,
