Now in its 17th year, the Essex Tourism & Leisure Show, organised by Visit Essex, takes place on Thursday 23 February 10.00am-3.30pm.  The venue is the Crowne Plaza Five Lakes, Tolleshunt Knights, Maldon, Essex CM9 8HX

Carol Jolly, Outstanding Contribution to Group Travel AwardThis great show with over 90 exhibitors is going to be fabulous.  Visitor attractions and destinations rub shoulders with cruise companies, hotels, tour and coach operators and firms who arrange short breaks and great days out. There is something for everyone. In the Taste Essex area, "try before you buy" local produce include scones and jam from Wilkins of Tiptree, super cakes from their Patisserie, and a wide variety of pies, sausages and fabulous food from the county.

Each year, the number of visitors increases (free admission, by the way)  and Brentwood Writers' Circle will be there as usual with our chairman, Colin Taylor and his team who will be on hand for any visitors who want to meet published authors and learn a little about the business of writing and publishing.   Here is our organiser, Carol Jolly.

Visit Essex will be supporting the Sam Bearman Trust. Proceeds will be donated to the Big Bear Fest. For further information and FREE tickets to the show contact www.TourismAndLeisureShow.co.uk or email carol.jolly@essex.gov.uk or 01245 435152.
