Brightlingsea WinterFest Events

Martin Newell

An afternoon with Martin Newell

  • 2:00 pm
  • February 25, 2024
  • Colne Yacht Club Waterside CO7 0AX

“Part tortured artist and part invoice clerk, Martin Newell has been a successful light entertainer in our region for decades. Now internationally quite well-known as a rock god and as a writer, once again he brings his ravaged good looks and peculiar talents to the Brightlingsea Winterfest on 25th February 2024. Either be there, or hold your lives cheap that you missed him.”
