The Old Police Station,
37 Queen Street,


The Slack Space venue at The Old Police Station, 37 Queen Street, Colchester is now closed. Negotiations are under way to set up at a new venue, but these may take several months to complete.

SlackFolk will continue, while Slack Space is closed, at the The Piatto Café (across the road from The Old Police Station at the corner of Queen Street and the Priory Walk pedestrian precinct) who have agreed to host SlackFolk until we can move to the new Slack Space. It will be a good space to enjoy music and poetry in comfort. Coffee, tea and food will be available at commercial prices.
