We had the pleasure of having the Band of Fools play at our Christmas edition of the Secret Vintage Fair- they got the customers dancing and kicked off the day with feet tapping! We hope to have them back again.

The Foolz..... Without doubt my favourite, and the most fun band in Colchester! They are not just a great Balkan, gypsy, eastern and flamenco-lite music- but also a treat to watch!
